PEI Voted Top 10 Islands to Live!

>> Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Frommers has voted Prince Edward Island in the top 10 of the 500 most extraordinary Islands in the world! (We include an excerpt from the article below. For the full article click HERE!)

Choose Your Escape

"Our new book 500 Extraordinary Islands began to take shape as sort of a life list -- how many islands have you been to, and which have you always dreamed of seeing? As our final list evolved...we found ourselves broadening the definition, expanding our concept of what makes an island alluring. But our main criterion was simple: We wanted to offer the 500 islands you'd most want to visit -- or perhaps stay on forever. Here are 10 of the most interesting.

Prince Edward Island, Canada: Beyond Green Gables

Sometimes all the Anne of Green Gables hoopla around Prince Edward Island gets to be a bit much.

How can a century-old series of children's books define an entire Canadian province? Drive around PEI's low rolling hills blanketed in trees and crops, and that bucolic past celebrated in Lucy Maud Montgomery's books makes sense after all. Beyond the jagged coast with its inlets and historic fishing villages, you'll discover that small farms make up the island's backbone...."


The lovely Prince Edward Island welcomes you to your own home here...to visit or to stay forever!

SUMMERSIDE - If you bring them here, they will build it. 
That's Peter Brown's philosophy when it comes to drawing new residents and businesses to Summerside's downtown core. 
Brown took over the volunteer position of interim president of Downtown Summerside Inc. after the resignation of Nelson Snow in December. 
"My motivation is to get more people living in the downtown area while the city's motivation is getting people to work downtown," said Brown. "If you bring the people here, they'll create the jobs. We're hoping to have some sort of balance in working toward both those aspects."
He would prefer to see condominium development to help attract empty-nesters and retirees to the downtown area. 
Brown is president of Bayside Builders, but said his ideas aren't motivated by his business agenda. 
"There are so many useable buildings in the city and many businesses have second storeys that are underutilized," he said. "We could have six to eight additional development companies come into Summerside. There is some value in the bones of these older buildings and you can marry that with new development."
While there are opportunities for younger people in sectors such as e-health that already exist in Summerside, Brown said, he'd also like to focus on making part-time residents permanent fixtures in the city. 
During Snow's eight years as Downtown Summerside's president, businesses grew from 203 to 218, and employee numbers rose from 1,976 to 2,206. 
But some businesses and employees have also left during that time. And while the west-end boardwalk, and Credit Union Place have been completed, other projects like the revitalization of Water Street have not. 
"We need the business community to invest and buy into the base we've created," said Brown. "It's frustrating for business people because the customers aren't there."
Brown will remain president at least until the organization's annual general meeting in April.
