- When town leaders, in the mid-80's, "down-zoned" the residential component of what originally had been a planned 70,000 population island, they failed to down-zone the commercial areas zoned to accommodate that many people. This request makes sense - our island has only around five dozen undeveloped lots, so a few more won't harm. Long overdue removal of this commercially zoned eyesore is a good first step. Only the vermin living in this wreck will complain.
