In Speers Point NSW on “Community Facility (Multi...” at Speers Point Park 23 Park Road Speers Point NSW 2284:

Philip Uebergang commented

I strongly object to an 'arts' project that will cost this community over $2M. We pay rates for local government services and local infrastructure, not for vanity projects.

Speers Point Park has also been tampered with enough. Leave it alone and let the community enjoy a peaceful place. Quiet, leafy areas are rapidly diminishing in the local area as it is, thanks to the council's determination to develop every spare space available.

The council has already failed to demonstrate that it possesses any nuance in relation to art funding. Recent 'artistic' funding efforts around the lake are cringe-worthy and, again, have used our money in the cause with insufficient return to the community. A high exposure project of this size and nature by a council with a questionable recent history in the arts, is fraught.

This development should not be approved due to its illegitimate use of public money, and the risk that it represents to the community in disfiguring this popular park, particularly in view of council's recent history in such matters.
