Nicholas, that's the problem with letting politicians make decisions, they mess things up. If local business owners were allowed to control their environment this would not be a problem. Make politicians servants, give them very little power and let people with money on the line make the decisions. Until people stop drinking the "government as saviour" kool-aid, you will never stop stupid things like this from happening. Since political decisions are made by people with very little connection to the local neighborhood, why does anyone expect the decisions to reflect the will of the community.

Central planning (even on a city level) has never worked, will never work and the people who try to make it work are fools. Just compare the centrally planned China of the sixties and seventies with the decentralized China of today, and ask yourself, which one is more effective at allocating resources?
