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

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?

Gallery poll: less than 40% wanted Anzac Oval
• 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.
