An interesting thread on the island forum on VInow.com.
It began with Notahippie saying “STJ is almost perfect. While less expensive food and more parking in Cruz bay are obvious things for change, “If you could wave your magic wand, what would you change about STJ?”
Predictably, critics cited residential and commercial development.
Exit Zero, with some irony intended, said “How lucky we are now that so many people decided STJ was 'missing' Condos, Timeshares, huge Rental Villas, Gated beaches, VLTs, more roads, strip malls, security gates on the ferry dock… Maybe what STJ is missing is an effective Planning Dept. and Land Use Plan.”
Dean Doeling, a fellow who works with Nike and has formed “Using Sport for Social Change” quoted a young St. Johnian who said what’s missing is “more sports on St. John for Schools and all ages.” (Read what Doeling’s done for the schools.)
But despite the complaints, Jrobinv wrote, “What’s missing from St. John? Me.”
