On large houses and pools

To the Editor,
House size maximums ought to be set regardless of the lot size even when the lot is large (acres more than 2). What I would wish is for people not to build the macmansion they could not afford in the Hamptons, to be able to “settle” for one on B.I. I also would like for pools filled with non-sea water to be heavily taxed if not prohibited outright. We have only one very precious aquifer on Block Island: I am loath to have our common drinking/cooking/bathing water fill a private swimming pool when the Atlantic Ocean washes our shores.
