Bell island can be the community it once was.
The average home in Portugal Cove costs upwards of $300,000 and has but a postage stamp of land. The once beautiful rocky landscape is disappearing at a dramatic rate, and being replaced by folks who wish to build a bigger, more elaborate home so they can outdo their neighbours and have a beautiful view of Bell Island.
Portugal Cove is overcrowded.
Put in a reliable ferry service that accommodates residents, and people will be jumping over each other to find a spot to live within the confines of Bell Island’s natural beauty.
All those complaints of wasted money, and demands to relocate Bell Islanders — gone!
