Disconnecting Alice

When people say there was no consultation on the revitalisation of the mall, when they miss the point of the Rainwater Reflection Pan (describing it as a “puddle”), there used to be a website where they could better inform themselves. I tried to log on recently, only to be told: “This website is offline indefinitely”. It was called www.connectingalice.com.au and I try to find out why it was pulled, writes KIERAN FINNANE.

Alice Plaza and the street: can we try a bit harder?

 

Businesses opening their doors onto the street is a make or break situation for Todd Street North, with the most critical premises being the tenancies on the eastern side of Alice Plaza.  If one solution is grease traps, allowing a cafe to open up in the location, is everyone trying hard enough to make that happen? KIERAN FINNANE reports. 

Northern end of the mall reopens

 

 

 

Traffic officially returned to the northern end of Todd Mall this morning for the first time in 28 years (apart from special occasions). But more importantly people came out in good number to enjoy the new public spaces created as part of the mall redesign. It will be the ongoing presence of people, locals and visitors alike, that will be critical to the hoped for revitalisation of the town’s premier ‘street’. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
