Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Brad Box­all

It is easy to see why opin­ions are so di­vided over a public space such as Daw­son Mall. You have your busi­ness own­ers who place their very liveli­hood on mak­ing a good go of it. They should not be “used to” clean­ing urine from their door­ways, hav­ing their shopfronts graf­fi­tied and their stock stolen or, even worse, set alight. They say it is mostly teenagers caus­ing them grief so it gives some merit to calls from Street Univer­sity to give our youth things to do. Bore­dom doesn’t ex­cuse dis­gust­ing be­hav­iour but maybe it some­how ex­plains it. Per­haps the pro­posal for a per­ma­nent bas­ket­ball hoop in the mall could be a fea­ture in the pro­posed $1.6 mil­lion neigh­bour­hood park.
