Writing Task 2: Responding to Survey Questions

Read the following information.

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.

City Development Survey :

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.

To whom it may concern. I want to opine in favour of Shopping Complex, which offers several restaurants, grocery or convenience stores, and movie cinemas. It seems to be a far better choice than the other one. Though the other choice is equally appealing, I would like to present a couple of ideas to substantiate my arguments. The shopping complex is beneficial since it fulfils all the livelihood needs to be required in day to day life. As citizens feel detrimental while commuting, they have to go to other cities to buy a tiny amount of things. Moreover, as the city already had numerous parks and sports arenas, the cinemas, shopping and food outlets give people plenty of time to do other chores because they don't need to commute anymore. Although the recreational park is significant for the individual, my city has a spectacular stadium and lovely parks, which is overwhelming. Having discussed all the arguments, establishing a shopping area would be more beneficial than opening a competitive park. Regards, Mike
