Re plans to upgrade McKenzie Street announced in your paper last week.

It is about time, with all the growth predicted for the future of Wonthaggi, that the Bass Coast Shire got together with the head honchos at Coles and decided what to do with the Watt Street site, which has been wasted potential.

I’m sure that many locals would love to see this site developed into something special to complement the town and improve amenities.
One idea would be a multi-storey car park, with a garden area on the top, with food outlets and seating, to create a pleasant rest and social area for the people.

The old retail space could be converted into office space or retail outlets. The town needs something like this, and due to its central location, it would be nice to see the potential of this space realised.
