SKY­SCRAPERS IN HO­BART

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

THE city is a city. It’s not a re­tire­ment vil­lage. We all sit and won­der why our kids leave Ho­bart for the main­land and we lose the skills, the ex­pe­ri­ence and all the op­por­tu­ni­ties to lift Ho­bart and carry it for­ward to big­ger and bet­ter things.

DE­VEL­OP­MENT doesn’t have to mean high-rise. There are Euro­pean cities that have proved that, and no one would sug­gest that Paris (for ex­am­ple) is a “re­tire­ment vil­lage”.

I GET so tired of be­ing called a bor­ing per­son be­cause I don’t want high­rise build­ings. Give me a de­cent road/rail in­fra­struc­ture and I’ll call it progress.

Kim Cartwright

IT’S OK to keep her­itage build­ings, but you also have to move with the times and pro­vide cashedup vis­i­tors to the is­land with the lat­est ameni­ties. The is­land isn’t lack­ing in wel­com­ing peo­ple, but lacks real in­vest­ment with pro­gres­sive think­ing.
