Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I AM not sur­prised that big open blank space has not been grafit­tied. It is just too ir­re­sistible for some­one who loves to tag their names and de­face property. I don’t mind street art but tag­ging is ugly.

I thought as part of the main street up­grade that this wall was go­ing to be some sort of a fea­ture wall not left blank half grey and a block of white.

We could have some­thing so nice in this space. Some form of art and not just a mu­ral, think out­side the square a lit­tle.

As I am a rate payer I am help­ing coun­cil pay for their budget short­fall I would like to see the coun­cil think about com­mis­sion­ing some­one or a group to give us some­thing spe­cial to look at. Even a cam­paign that we could advertise all over Aus­tralia and Aus­tralia only. Help us trans­form “The great wall of the Whit­sun­days”. Even shout out to these big budget reno shows like The Block and get some cre­ative ideas hap­pen­ing for our town and it would be awe­some if it didn’t cost the ratepay­ers a cent.

Maybe we should start a pe­ti­tion and put it to coun­cil to get some­thing hap­pen­ing here and not just for the tourists to think our town is pretty but for all the res­i­dent and ratepay­ers who look at these eye­sores daily. Renee O’Dwyer CANNONVALE
