What's the strategy?

It was fascinating to read the Option page of today's Citizen about the forthcoming vote on CityView trolley tours. Key West does not seem to have a strategy (=direction) on development and tourism.

No one seems to get that Key West's charm is in its natural,authentic state. Modern day impositions like real estate development and modernity dilute the Key West 'real thing.'

For Pete's sake, there are enough trolley tours already. Too many actually. Tourists should walk more! (You'd think all those visitors straight off the ships would want to stretch their sea legs not get right into a confined trolley tour!).

I always think one of Key West's usp's is that you can walk everywhere you need to in old town. Why more trolleys then? Madness prevails.
