RE: Grand Vision For TAFE (Weekend Advocate, June 6).
Your piece by Henry Bialowas provides an inspirational, practical solution not only for the progressive, staged development of Bathurst's former TAFE building as a performing arts centre for regional NSW, but also as a space to ensure the ongoing viability of the Mitchell Conservatorium.
Extensive community consultation in the region has consistently identified this iconic building's primary use as an educational facility and cultural centre.
Including the staged implementation of a new home for the Mitchell Conservatorium has struck a chord with many Bathurstians.
Mr Bialowas has outlined a convincing rationale which is both achievable and financially viable as a long-term proposal and is strongly supported by the Bathurst Town Square Group.
