    The reality, which is probably more likely, is that there is just total incompetence and lack of forward thinking that prevents successful completion of any projects.
    Ahh.. I see you are finally coming to grips with the typical dominican mentality.

    Indeed, it was very nice and the restaurants seemed busier overall and lots of street band as I remember it. Will never understand why they removed the win-win set-up.. Incompetent people.

    The question begs though.. WHY was it a Priority to SHUT DOWN ALL THOSE LEGIT BUSINESSES, and even More Businesses who are on the verge or at least suffering... and therefore not able to EMPLOY more " Local people " .. and spend that money in the local Economy, and so on and so on..

    The Mayor with all respect, has her head up her you know what ..
    It's all part of the bigger plan. Take a look at the new developments and refurbished old developments in the works for the north coast. Do you think "they" just want to repair the sidewalk and return PC to where it was before? If the developers Seamonkey mentioned are making a food court without loud music instead of a hooker bar, that might be a clue....

    Or they really do have a plan that they cannot quite figure out how to implement because of their incompetence? I have lived full time here in the DR for 14 years and have a Dominican family. I have some idea of what the mindset is here.

    There has been a desire for years from the top level in government to "change" the way Sosua is viewed both by Dominicans (who mostly won't go there except for the occasional day on the beach via bus from Santiago/Santo Domingo) and the Internet perception as an alternate to Thailand. We can only wait and see what happens if anything at all to Pedro Clisante and the immediate area.

    I believe that is exactly it. Although I favor the word inexperience. It's not easy turning a town around like Sosua. They've got a constant force against them as they try to change directions. Every few hours a plane load of guys land and hit the streets.

    Picking a more out of site and out of mind location for the red light district has proven to be insurmountable.

    Don't forget the expat perverts already living there who also contribute to the P4P arena...............
