I am extremely disappointed with the local economy. I walk through town often and am seriously saddened by the lack of business that exists, and even more saddened by the frequent closure of businesses that have been a part of our community for years.
The town officials were excited by the newly built cruise ship dock; however, there is not any visual posted signage off the dock that indicates specific restaurants or shops (of which there are very little of both). I for one have not seen any benefit by the new port.
There is absolutley nothing in our downtown area to attract tourism. This town needs to seriously think and bring in industries which would benefit the local economy. It’s just sad.
