Ummmm...what is it I'm missing here? Some resort owners are building what appears to be a very impressive, upscale project on their own property and some non-locals with no property interests are up in arms about it?
What's wrong with progress and improvement? Maybe it'll bring some more much-needed dollars to the SP economy?
For those of you who haven't noticed, SP and AC are tourist destinations, existing on a tourist-based economy. What exactly do you expect to happen in such a scenario?
This is the normal progression you see in virtually all tourist-based economies. Look a little north.
If you want to keep experiencing the ambiance of smaller, less developed communities, you're always going to have to be willing to move along in your travels, in my observations.
SP's a LOT different place than it was 20 years ago. No one seems to be complaining about that. It ain't gonna' stop, folks.
