So where is Santa Domingo?

By johnboy - 18 October 2008 9

The Age has an interesting little piece on the Australian Federal Police’s training for international deployment.

Apparently somewhere nearby Canberra lurks a whole fake village of “Santa Domingo” in the nation of “Sirec”.

What’s Your opinion?

I spent some time in Sirec trying to restore “law and order”. It is quite a good simulataion of a village in a new country to the north west of Australia.

And I just totally posted in the wrong thread. Damn you, tabbed browsing!

I agree it needs to be done properly, but if the correct places for these developments is currently filled by detached houses, infilling as properties are sold is more sensible than building higher density developments in the middle of nowhere. There should ideally be a mix of types of properties in each area so that people can upsize and downsize in a community. Ageing in place, for example, is difficult if the only types of properties in the area are large, detached houses. And while people acknowledge we need to move away from everyone having a block of dirt, all of these action groups come across as very NIMBY to me.

Cute. It’s where some of The Pines outbuildings were by the look of it. There was a hippy, ersatz Sufi community there once upon a time …
