Historic District Concerns More Than Property Owners

To the Editor:

At the June 16 public hearing of the proposed Market and Main Street and West End Historic Districts Committee, two very powerful Island persons spoke of how property owners in these proposed districts should be given sole responsibility for deciding yes or no on this matter.

Wonderful. Just like only bankers should determine all banking regulations, and oil drillers should write their own environmental rules. Or, bars should be able to stay open as long as they like.

Seems to me all other Island property owners and, even offisland visitors, have a horse in this race, too.
