Comment on Moss ties together three Alice projects worth $90m by Ginnia.

Flood zone. Building in the CBD is ludicrous and puts the contents of these proposed buildings in danger of being destroyed.
Has everyone forgotten the warnings the town recieved from a NASA scientist a few years back. They found evidence of a flood that would have the current residents fighting for space on top of Billy Goat Hill when it happens again!
And it happened only a couple of hundred years ago! Not all that long before white settlement.
Food for thought for those people pushing for flood mitigation! How high would those levy banks need to be?

Government accused of unfair competition
This argument has been discussed at VERY great length around Australia over the last few years.
There are many travellers who do not wish to pay the “bells and whistles” prices at caravan parks with all the extras such as pools etc.
These travellers will pretty much ignore towns that do not provide the cheaper options and the majority of businesses suffer because of a couple of caravan park owners!
Towns that provide the cheaper camping options benefit by having visitors stay, often for many days at a time, and spending money in the town.
For the benefit of the majority of businesses let’s keep the cheaper option going at the show grounds.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Why is it that long time residents’ opinions are totaly ignored by the “we’re here to make a quick buck before we move somewhere else” crowd?
Things we don’t want changed are changed by them and then they bugger off somewhere else, leaving us with their mess and loss of town character.


Allegations, no proof on bottlo shut-down
I am sick to death of grog shops in supermarkets and all that entails!
Why can’t grog shops be kept in completely seperate areas of town so we can do our shopping in peace.
The proliferation of grog shops is ridiculous in a town of this size.


Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
There is space, south of The Gap, to build a fantastic cultural centre and art gallery in a highly visable area near the college.
Instead the government is absolutely determined to squash the centre into a less attactive area, remove much needed car parking, and spend millions on building new sports fields.
Of course the government will not do any thing about replacing the car parking the residents this town council represent need to access the church, senior citizens, youth centre etc.
All round this project will be a disgusting waste of public money, a poorly designed project that could have been so much better.


Will gas royalties save the NT? Read the fine print.
Also remember, all gas wells eventually deteriate and fail. With the mining industry’s record of just leaving a mess behind when they abandon a mine, can the NT actually afford to all but give our gas away?
