(A) The city’s major sources of income are fishing, boat facilities and repair, refining and tourist trade. For its size, the city has a very broad economic base, but the smallest business decline becomes very major in respect to individual income; therefore, even more diversification is needed. The area has a good labor market and is isolated sufficiently to maintain full employment if developed properly.
(B) The intent of the plan is to:
(1) Promote more allied or light industries to offset seasonal labor demand;
(2) Encourage relocation of fixed income residents to the city;
(3) Encourage more high income individuals to establish summer retreats and boating areas;
(4) Add more tourist attractions and facilities;
(5) Discourage strip-zoned marginal and substandard businesses and promote complete and diversified shopping facilities; and
(6) Encourage the educated youth of the city to remain in the area.
