The Green and its streetscape accurately reflect the development of Scotland since it was established, including the contemporary St. Margaret's Church sited next to the staid Congregational Church and Chapel. This is one of the charms of the town center, as is the c. 1920 bungalow tucked between the town hall and dwelling built during the Colonial period. However, the green can only support a certain amount of change before it loses its character. This is already happening due to some unsympathetic remodeling/conversions. There is also a large empty lot facing the green where a hotel once stood that will some day be developed.

In addition, there is some local concern that the Department of Transportation has plans to modify the sight lines in order to improve traffic safety which could adversely affect the green.
