Comment on Gallery poll: less than 40% wanted Anzac Oval by Evelyne Roullet.

• 39% does not make a majority.
• The building is more than just an old high school to a lot of old residents including me! Community college, technical college …
• Tourism? I have been tour guide / sole operator for language and I have good knowledge of what the real tourists want. I said real, because you have tourists who do not know why they are here, and the ones who have specific wants.
• “We understand Anzac Oval is highly valued as community green space. This will be respected in the planning and design process for the gallery. The community, including traditional owners, will be consulted through this process.”
• Green will be respected? Please explain.
• In the planning and design process? Hello!!! No design yet!!!
• How can you consult without a design and projection???
This project looks more and more like a scenario of “Yes, Minister”.
Bernard: But surely the citizens of a democracy have a right to know.
Sir Humphrey Appleby: No. They have a right to be ignorant. Knowledge only means complicity in guilt; ignorance has a certain dignity.

Gallery poll: less than 40% wanted Anzac Oval
Gunner should ask the residents as the oval belongs to the ratepayers and not to the Mayor.
After six months of hard work, the committee handed its report to government in mid-November.
The committee believe that the Desert Park is the best location to achieve the project’s vision.
More than any other site considered, it would allow an expression of “connectedness to country,” says Mr Watkins – fundamental for an Indigenous cultural project.
“It’s somewhere where you can understand the grandeur, the majesty of the country, where the museum would have room to breathe,” says Ms Perkins.
Why have a committee if you do not listen to the founding? Is it not throwing money in the wind?

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.

What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
