Let us de­cide

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

OUR lo­cal coun­cil elec­tions are not far off.

Let the com­mu­nity de­cide through a ref­er­en­dum on whether we want four, six or eight storeys in Air­lie Beach and an in­ter­na­tional air­port or not.

Talk­ing to a few se­lect groups on build­ing heights and hold­ing a few air­port meet­ings with­out feed­back are hardly a gauge of what the broader com­mu­nity want or do not want.

Mayor Whit­ney has al­ways said she would lis­ten to the com­mu­nity. Well mayor, here’s your chance to lis­ten to the com­mu­nity and make a de­ci­sion on what we want and not what you want to force on us.
