The Future of Mt. Wellington

I’ve not been to Mt. Wellington yet because when all others won’t be a good destination to visit during winter, Mt. Wellington will be the perfect place to visit. However, needless to say there had been some arguments and debates going on regarding the future of Mt. Wellington. Here are some of the excerpts from "The Mercury"
“After decades of public division, residents are being urged to have their say on the future of Mt Wellington. Be it a cable car, coffee shop or funicular railway, it is time for the community to tell proponents what they want. A "Summit for the Summit" is being held tonight to gauge public feelings on the way forward for the mountain.” 

“Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania chief executive Luke Martin said yesterday the summit would allow the public to get down to the nitty-gritty of what it would take for the third most visited tourism attraction in the state to reach its full potential.” 

“Cable-car fan Adrian Bold said he was putting together a viable business case for a cable car to the mountain.” 

“A proposal on the possibility of a community "map and app" project, a funicular railway and rejuvenation of existing huts also will be presented tonight by Madeleine Ogilvie.” 

I just hope that the best project will be initiated so that Mt. Wellington and other natural beauty here in Tasmania will be preserved for other generations to enjoy in the future.
