And now, your friendly neighbourhood prison
The saddest part (for the town’s image) of this story is the location.
I’m just thinking of those tourist passing through or staying in town arriving through the Gap and driving into town via Gap Road, they go down the road that most locals know as “the Bronx” and see these prison like dwellings, not a good image and this doesn’t help the town.
The people coming up with these brilliant ideas not doubt have no vested interest in making Alice Springs great again (not a Trump reference).

If they are doing it there they need to rip the band-aid off quickly and just get it done. We all know they will end up doing what they want anyway.
I feel like they are just entertaining the people with ideas that the site can change (ticking mandatory boxes), but it won’t.
