City Development Survey
You live in a small town of 10,000 people. A large green area in the centre of town is undeveloped. The city has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents would like to have built in that area.
Choose the option that you prefer. Why do you prefer your choice? Explain the reasons for your choice. Write about 150-200 words.
Option A: Shopping Complex: This shopping mall would include restaurants, a large supermarket, and a movie theatre.
Option B: Recreational Park: This park would include a sports complex, a large green area, and a small petting zoo.
I appreciate the authorities’ concern regarding the development of this town and as far as my opinion is concerned, I think that the construction of a shopping complex will be more beneficial than a recreational park.
There will be numerous benefits of having a shopping mall in this town. Currently, the local people have to go to the nearby city if they want quality and variety in the products that they buy. So, a shopping complex will help the residents in all their shopping needs. However, there is no dearth of green areas in and around this town which lessens the need of any kind of park.
Apart from this, the inclusion of a restaurant and a movie theatre will take care of the recreational needs of the locals and there will be no need to go out of the city to seek such facilities. Moreover, these facilities will also attract outsiders into the town and hence, it will give a boom to the local businesses as well.
Therefore, keeping in mind its immediate and long term benefits, I would like to have a shopping complex in my town.
