The natural beauty of Martha’s Vineyard is the island’s main attraction.  As a result, very detailed and specific zoning and development guidelines are in place with the intent of preventing new development on island from degrading the characteristics that make the island such a valued place.  New construction is still present on island, as 107 housing permits were issued in 2009.  The zoning and development guidelines are  proactive in an effort to create a future the people of Martha’s Vineyard want, instead of settling or reacting  to the future the people get.

Until next time,
