LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Stop spending money on Bridge mall, it is nice as it is.
I live centrally for the reason of being close to the supermarkets.
Opening the Bridge mall as proposed will cause more congestion in the central area and there is already a lack of parking.
More free parking is what will encourage people to stay around and shop.
Send the money to help our homeless people.
Christine Coombes, Ballarat.
Why do we need to have so much growth, we live in a large country town by choice?
We do not want to be like Melbourne, full of so many people and its problems.
Leave Ballarat as it is.
Peter Hewitt, Golden Point.
With growth, infrastructure is needed.
Where are the new schools and kindergartens going to be?
What about road upgrades and water?
Where are the plans for extra shopping centres?
Maybe we are just going to dump more houses out there for council revenue.
Jan Flowers, Alfredton.
