With a number of upcoming infrastructure projects popping up across the Northern Territory, now's the time for its residents to make their voices heard about the its future. Owners of property in Alawa and elsewhere in the territory are being encouraged to visit a new website established by the Northern Territory government to provide feedback about any future sale or leasing of a public asset or development.
Northern Territory chief minister Adam Giles said the aim was to ensure all future infrastructure would meet the future needs and desires of the growing Australian state, as well as ensuring taxpayer money was being spent in all the right areas.
"Is there a new road or a new bridge that you think could open up your region? Is there a new sporting or cultural venue needed in your community? Do we need better facilities to support families such as new health or education infrastructure? We want your ideas," said Mr Giles in a 20 October statement.
This could be encouraging for those living in Darwin who are interested in shaping the direction of the city's development. Identifying major holes in existing public infrastructure and providing the government with ideas for solutions will help make the city a better place to invest in the future.
