Andrew Barr ACT Chief Minister asks the Vice President of the Phillip Business Community Inc., Josh Mulrine for Phillip to come up with a plan for Renewal, otherwise they (the Govt.) will deliver what they think we need.
So far in Phillip (south of Hindmarsh) that has been very very little for well over 20 years. Some road works, a sign or two and that’s about it.
Most business owners and Landlords in Phillip are so used of no change, no improvements, no care, no water for our gardens or green spaces, no street sweeping, cracked paving, no rubbish bins, no playgrounds equipment, graffiti walls everywhere, no proper parking plan, no proper vision for future, no garden beds and flowers to be seen, no shaded seating areas, no gazebos, no bbqs, just a dry and dusty areas.
It seems that most people in Phillip don’t care anymore and are just prepared to accept whatever the Government throws at us.
For many many years now that has been a big fat NOTHING.
Millions of dollars in rates, land tax, gst, stamp duty and government charges are sucked out from the area every year to only be spent elsewhere.
If you think this is wrong and deserve more bang for this money then speak up, get involved and make a difference.
Start talking with your neighbors and start working together to make the changes we want, happen.
It’s up to each and everyone who runs a business of some kind in Phillip – because it’s your suburb, it’s where you do business, it’s your backyard. It’s where you spend most of your life. It’s where you should have pride, not disappointment.
Be proud of what we can create by working together with the Government for good change, the right change and the right mix of improvements. The Barr Government is about the future and that is what they want from us – Our Vision for Phillip.
No need to be silent and just accept the status quo anymore.
We have a voice, we have a better chance of getting improvements that will make our Business Neighborhood a much more pleasant destination for ourselves and our customers.
