No revolt, just re­vul­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THERE is no revolt or a mis­in­formed vo­cal mi­nor­ity try­ing to de­rail the Port Dou­glas Water­front mas­ter plan.

In fact the op­po­site is closer to the truth, whereas the so-called rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies are try­ing to get the award-win­ning mas­ter plan back on track.

It is the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil which has be­come side­tracked in a panic grab for avail­able Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment fi­nance re­cently an­nounced by Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Si­mon Crean.

The mas­ter plan came to­gether over a num­ber of years through con­sis­tent hard work and ded­i­ca­tion by all in­volved.

The team con­sisted of a pro­ject ad­vi­sory group made up of 26 lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions, as­so­ci­a­tions, in­dige­nous rep­re­sen­ta­tion and busi­ness lead­ers, in­clud­ing the de­vel­op­ers.

This team was chaired by UR­BIS de­sign along with the coun­cil and gov­ern­ment depart­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives.
