Get mov­ing!

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

WHEN will our coun­cil ac­tu­ally work for once?

Sit­ting all day on smart­phones play­ing Face­book games or at­tend­ing con­fer­ences does not con­sti­tute work.

We need Proser­pine to get mov­ing and grow­ing!

Coun­cil has to act and get pro­jects such as the Wa­ter­park and Main Street up­grades for Proser­pine un­der­way ASAP.

Coun­cil’s plan­ning de­part­ment should be meet­ing with devel­op­ers to form bonds to en­sure when eco­nomic con­di­tions are right so Proser­pine gets high qual­ity de­vel­op­ments at lo­ca­tions such as north of Faust St.

Sugar grow­ing land needs to be sac­ri­ficed for this and the past at­ti­tude of pro­tect­ing it and Proser­pine's sup­posed "ru­ral char­ac­ter" at all costs needs to be stopped.

Every­one seems to want Air­lie to progress yet if Proser­pine was to progress the re­gion would be a whole lot stronger.

Proser­pine has the infrastructure to cope and fa­cil­i­ties that fam­i­lies want and the only things stand­ing in the way of a big­ger and brighter fu­ture for Proser­pine is coun­cil and parochial at­ti­tudes to­wards it. Terry Sloane Proser­pine
