I heard from the Canadian hotel clerk at Belles Rives that it is now owned by an Iranian man.  He wants to demo the place and redevelop.  His plans don't agree with what the commune would like to see.  So, they are having a bit of a stand-off.  He won't budge; they won't budge.  But, he is obligated to be making some progress.  Each year, for a few days, he has these big trucks come in and move a bunch of dirt from here to there.  That's it: progress.  So, he waits until the commune gets tired and they wait for him to tire.  crazy eh?  I love that place.  I think it'd be remarkable if they made something of it.
