Development of the Shezidao (社子島) peninsula in Taipei’s Shilin District (士林) is still up in the air, despite residents voting to support Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je’s (柯文哲) plan to turn the area into an “Ecological Shezidao,” because there remains a difference of opinion over the details of the redevelopment plan.

Results of the poll, which began on Saturday and ended on Sunday, showed that only about 35 percent of eligible voters cast their votes. Among the votes cast, 59.56 percent supported the “Ecological Shezidao” plan. None of the plans gained more than 900 votes.
