over-regulation & civil disorder | fragile balance between regulation and publicity

Being a regulated place now, 'public townscape' did become a more exclusive place and surely did offer its visitors and useres a great variety of attractions. Nevertheless, the guidelines and rules were developed to suit the majority of its users best. Thus some people and groups were feeling no longer welcome or had the impression the public space is overregulated, and no longer really public.
The island 'public townscape' was dealing with the exciting contrast "puplic-private", "freedom-regulation" and "anonymity and social control", just like any public space, real or virtual. It cannot be seen as a perfect utopian public space. It had to deal with the same problems as a real public space. The balance between those contrasts must be negotiated over and over again, and it must be adjusted when they are no longer suitable for the users of a public space.
