Come to the Anzac Centenary Briefing – on Tues 14.2.2012


Remember how the Anzac Centennial Plaza wasn’t the reason the fig trees had to go?

Remember how it was just an idea? A proposal? A figment of someone’s imagination?

Come to Council Tuesday night at 6:30pm to hear the briefing about the Anzac Centenary. I wonder how many misquotes there’ll be about the findings at community consultation in 2010.

A community member said to me ‘Bet you 2 bob that NCC will ask for funding for Civic Park and end up spending it on new paving for Laman Street’. I said they wouldn’t do that – how could you be so cynical.

Cursed paving.

You can read the briefing papers for the meeting tomorrow here.

And here’s the community’s piece of fig being moved from Laman Street the other day.

    The heartless bastards! Are they deliberately trying to invoke community unrest by bringing this to a Council meeting so soon? We all suspected, ah KNEW, that there was another agenda, did not take them long to show their hand, did it!!!??

    If anyone cares to contact the Commonwealth Department of Veteran’s Affairs, you will be informed by the assistant to the minister, that no funding will be provided to any location that can be regarded as having ‘sensitive local issues’. Civic Park may be a memorial park, but there will be no chance of federal funding for it. These are words from the source, please double check if you wish. Mention the Greg Ray articles re Laman Street, they have them on file.
