Light rail from Canning Bridge to Curtin Uni then onwards to Victoria Park, Perth City, West Perth, the hospitals and UWA? A lot less cars on the road, safer travel and cleaner air?
Party time in South Perth, Angelo Street Fiesta. Hey, what if this were to be a taste of the future for places like Angelo Street, Preston Street and Manning Hub?
Sidewalk cafes, stalls on the last Saturday of the month, a licenced restaurant or three, people out and seeing friends, what a spirited place this could be.
A shuttle bus from Canning Bridge to the Zoo, a rail station at South Perth, complete redevelopment of the Richardson to Judd Street area, an iconic new business, commercial and residential development in the Civic Triangle behind the old Police Station, a museum and cultural precinct at the Old Mill?
What else is possible in our City?
In 2008- 09 more than two thousand people were involved in the City Vision project, thinking about our future in 2030. Residents, Councillors, facilitators, teachers and lots of others contributed to an imaginative project. Now I think it’s time to confirm that we have consensus on this view, modifying it if necessary. Then we can develop a consistent set of long- term goals and plan for ways to achieve them.
Of course we’ll have a wide range of conversations about our life and our City. That is tremendous.
