Comment on Indigenous art gallery centrepiece of Gunner’s plans for Alice by Tara Leckey.
I suggest that the shortlisted designs are presented as scale models for the community to see and respond too before a final decision is made.
3D models that show how the building and other elements will sit within the chosen site and relate to the immediate environment.
This was how it used to be done so that anyone could see the proposed development at the local shopping center before giving their feedback.
Computer generated images such as “artist’s impressions” can be distorted and are not accessible to everyone.
If a 3D scale model had been presented for the new supreme court building, the community could have responded to the design before it was actually built. It’s too late now.
I also agree with Steve Thorne’s comment.

Alice mountain biking classic turns 10
Congratulations to all involved in this growing event and the development of our local MTB culture in general.
I’m a casual rider and love exploring the tracks and trails around town with friends or on my own.
It is a great way to get fit and experience the sights and sounds of the wonderful rugged country we live in.
I am grateful to everyone who helps build and maintain the tracks.

Giant shed to enhance heritage-listed railway cottage?
The proposed shed will overshadow a rare and valuable remnant of our town’s history. We need to work hard to ensure that Alice retains the small pockets of appeal it has left, not destroy them. I stongly oppose this development.
