One of the selectmen said that it would "put Douglas on the map". I moved to Douglas for the rural character and don't want to be "put on the map".

I f I wanted congestion, pollution, overcrowding etc. I would have moved to a city.

How about a film studio like the one proposed in RI that can't seem to get off the ground. We maybe a small town, but we have know how and many talented people. It would be a business that produced a product and woundn't pander to low paying jobs like theme parks are noted. We could export to other areas and the world something quality! We are the areas horse capitol why not add arts to our resume

Any revenue generated in Douglas would be a PLUS. Yes most of us who have been here for 10 years and more would love Douglas to be the DOUGLAS OF RURAL CHARACTER that we chose to make our homes; however I would bank on saying that we all will agree that Douglas has changed very much. Our growth alone has attributed tremendously to our "not so" RURAL tax increases. The big picture will come to light when the entire town is able to see exactly what the whole game plan will be and just how it will effect Douglas as a whole. We have yet to Welcome much needed assests to maintain this towns stability, this should be considered carefully by all residents of our humble town.

I agree with Cat. Douglass could use a good porn studio.
