Bowling alley business: A win for Oak Bluffs

Bowling alley business: A win for Oak Bluffs

To the Editor:

As the abutter most directly impacted by the proposed bowling alley, bar, and restaurant on Uncas Avenue, I am in full support of every aspect of the project designed by Sam Dunn.

I can’t understand why the abutters on Hiawatha Avenue would prefer to look at and neighbor the properties as they exist. ¬†For 15 years, I have been directly exposed to dilapidated and rotting buildings where I have witnessed and reported squatting, drug running, prostitution, graffiti, garbage, dumped cars, fire hazard, etc.

I applaud the town of Oak Bluffs for approving the project in its B-1 district. It is a wise business decision that will inject much needed energy into the year-round community. This is an opportunity for the town. Downtown Oak Bluffs is the perfect place for a venue that is a year-round business with amusement that accommodates all generations.

I look forward to the bowling alley being my neighbor. It is a win-win for Oak Bluffs.

  1. Thank you for writing this letter. I wanted to hear your opinion as an abutter and a business owner.

  2. Aside from the Nye property which Kim did a wonderful job repurposing into mixed commercial/residential property, Uncas Avenue needs someone else with the detremination and vision do develop that area that will help the immediate neighborhood, the town and all of the island city a venue that the whole family can enjoy. I cannot wait to take my son bowling.
