Eyesore rules needed


To the Editor:
Congratulations on a superb piece of enterprise journalism on the Hall family real estate holdings. The Halls’ “aw-shucks we’re just plain folks” doesn’t mask their real attitude to the people who feel it is a privilege to live on this beautiful Island and are decent, caring folk. Yet the Halls aren’t going to change.

So, the question arises, where are our town selectmen? Only anti-derelict housing and eyesore restrictions will reign in the Halls.

The community I lived in for 40 years before becoming a year-round resident on the Vineyard had such restrictions, and they were effective. Most towns have such restrictions.

Could we have a picture of the houses the Hall family call home?
