Pro­ject too costly

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to the lo­cal ratepay­ers tak­ing a sur­vey in re­gard to the “Val Shier Me­mo­rial Entertainment Com­plex” in Cairns.

It is per­haps our only op­por­tu­nity to ex­press our ob­jec­tion to this lav­ish con­struc­tion. If we had a much larger pop­u­la­tion AND could af­ford the mil­lions it would be great for the re­gion, but sadly it is be­yond our means.

To our knowl­edge, there has been no com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion, but our Di­vi­sion 10 coun­cil­lor voted in favour. Was this truly rep­re­sen­ta­tive of lo­cal opin­ion?

I have not come across any­one who is in favour of this “Val Shier Ed­i­fice”.

Our coun­cil rates will surely in­crease, to en­able Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil to pro­ceed with this pro­ject, which seems to be hastily mov­ing ahead be­fore the com­ing elec­tion.
