Albrecht oval lights a boon for sport, town: Cricket boss

2549 Albrecht lights SM

 

 

Light spill outside the oval is minimal, says cricket president Bruce Walker. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Town centre facelift would grind to a halt under Labor funding, says Mayor Ryan

Country Liberals suggest Labor "stuff-up": Traeger Park TV lights are already there.

 

Alice Springs will get only half as much as its Town Council asked for, and much later than expected.

This is the response by Mayor Damien Ryan to the campaign promises made by Chief Minister Paul Henderson last Friday.
Mayor Ryan says the council asked for $5m in 2012/13 to continue the town centre re-development, but will only get $2.5m, deferred and over two years, 2014 to 2016.
"It's pretty disappointing that the CBD doesn't rate before 2014-15 which is a long way away," says Mayor Ryan.
"You wouldn't be able to start stage two with that small a commitment. We need to have the money in place." ERWIN CHLANDA reports. PHOTO: Market last Sunday in Todd Mall. Funding as announced by the Chief Minister would curtail further progress on the long planned town centre upgrade.

Chamber slams Labor promises: football instead of stimulating business

Labor's election promises for Central Australia lack incentives for economic development in remote towns, give no thought to stimulating private enterprise in those areas, and by failing to allocate sufficient money to Alice Springs itself, fall short in returning the town to the tourist destination is used to be.

This is the view of Kay Eade, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce in Alice Springs, pictured at the Greatorex election forum she moderated, with (from left) ALP candidate Rowan Foley and Independent Phil Walcott.

She says money promised for football fields in bush communities would be better spent on stimulating business: "Why do electricians drive in and out from Alice Springs to service these communities?" she says. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

Labor would spend as much on a third set of footy oval lights as it would on the rest of Alice

 

The Territory Government, if re-elected next week, will spend as much on a third set of lights for Traeger Park as it will for the rest of the town.

Announcing election promises for Central Australia, Chief Minister Paul Henderson said in Alice Springs today it will cost $2.5m to upgrade the lights to broadcasting standard, so that AFL games such as the Indigenous All Stars can be broadcast nation-wide.

The same amount will be paid to the Town Council for the enhancement of the CBD and community parks.
