    Perhaps the soon-to-be vacant Bistro on the River building could be turned into a Seasonal Tourist office, and coffee shop/snackbar?

    /\ There wouldn’t be ANY better idea Davy. That is true. That’s exactly what it should be.

    they should convert the lot in front of the bistro into a skating rink, that would bring some good winter business down there.

    Turn the parking lot into a skating rink, where will people park? Convert parkland to parking, not a good idea.
    Convert to tourist office who could find it? Get some one to operate on seasonal bassis like the refreshment stand at Pillette Dock.
