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

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

  3. Excellent idea!

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

  5. 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.
