How does the community feel?

During our discussion it was said the youths hang around the CBD because there is not enough to do also, some committee member asked if the free WIFI could be turned off as co-chair I suggested that we should not punish the many for the actions of the few. Disabled people like free WIFI, because in some cases apps to help the disabled can be accessed via free Wi-Fi
