I think this is the planned expansion and development of the old football field, including dredge and fill to expand westward and double the size. Also to remove all the street peddlers to a shopping area here.

Hopefully someone will be able to really stretch that $13.5 million. So an outlet mall for what? Maybe hardware. It would be nice to get that area cleaned up. Just not sure how an outlet mall will promote responsible tourism, whatever that is.

The "outlet mall" is to be a community marketplace for the vendors who presently are on the streets and beaches
