Townsville Futures Plan

The Queensland Government released the Townsville Futures Plan today, and it includes the rather meaningless designation of Townsville as the second capital of Queensland -hey, if you’re not first, you’re last – as well as acknowledging the city as the defence hub of North Queensland. The Government is also hoping the National Broadband Network, a State Development Precinct and a CBD revitalisation contribute to Townsville’s ongoing prosperity. And a Farmers Market appears reasonably important, too, at least according to this word cloud that was central to the development of the vision for Townsville contained in the Futures Plan (see p. 18):

This is a great graphic, but I’m concerned about any vision for a city that had its origin in a jumbled mess of ideas without any logical structure.
