Did we know this?
I’ve just been told by my partner, a manager in the building industry, that they (ie, local construction companies) had recently been notified that, by the end of 2010, all street-level car parks in Civic will be made multi-storey (with smaller ‘footprints’).
Has the rest of the community been ‘notified’? Has there or will there be any ‘consultation’? How does it fit in terms of an overall transport/environmental policy, to say nothing about the appearance of Civic?
I drive and I shop, but I have to wonder if this is part of Stanhope’s never-ending attempt to make Canberra look like every other urban disaster.
