These are some of the issues that have been raised at our meetings. Some of them are costly and therefore long term but some are simple and easily addressed. We don’t believe any of these issues are heretical and will result in the destruction of Walkerville, but rather very simple people orientated projects. If Walkerville is to be closed off to the public then most of these things would not be necessary, but if tourists are to be encouraged to enjoy the Walkerville experience, then most of them make a lot of sense.
