Websites this petition has been posted on so far :To sign the petition please follow the link here :The rejection of the proposed Victoria Park grandstand by the Adelaide City Council as a result of a vocal campaign by nostalgic minorities is a backwards step for Adelaide and South Australia as a whole. It is a short-sighted decision based on fear and not reason.
The Victoria Park grandstand is a visionary project designed to provide permanent and superior facilities for the award winning Clipsal 500 event. Such a project would enhance our competitiveness in being able to retain if not bid for more world class events, which add to the vitality but also to the economy of our state.
Furthermore the proposed grandstand would facilitate the renaissance of Victoria Park into a premier horse racing venue, something which the under-utilized and tired facilities of today are incapable of achieving. The Victoria Park grandstand would allow Adelaide to put its best foot forward.
A permanent structure on the parklands is not a threat to our unique parklands, but rather an enhancement. Had it not been for similar visionary projects, we would not have Adelaide Oval, the zoo, Adelaide University, the Museum and Art Gallery amongst many other structures built on the parklands, which have become valued additions to our city. The proposed Victoria Park grandstand is no different.
As such, I as a progress-loving citizen of Adelaide or to the state of South Australia hereby declare my full and un-wavering support for the Victoria Park re-development in its full and original form.
