good idea in principle.

the implementation likely will be problematic.

What will be the curfew?

After midnight, or even eleven, all bets are off on maintaining order.

Back in the day; you had to strap on three condoms prior to visiting Westport. A lot of fatties and skanks down there.

Kelly's Old Style beer in paper cups and the aroma of stale farts was the height of white privilege.

there's a shortage of vegan food in the autonomous zone.

so, planners, please take note in selecting an autonomous zone site.

Westport would be good for creative a festive atmosphere as an autonomous zone.

Moreover, the boundaries could include Sunfresh.

So, keep Westport on the list.
