Heredia’s interview did not end without him using the opportunity to speak on works being done and carried out on the island. Reporters asked him for an update on the proposed new subdivision for island residents who wish to own a slice of paradise. And while he boasted about the Petrocaribe initiative that has been funding these development projects to date, he stated that soon this newly created concept plan will include a hospital, police station and fire station.
MANUEL HEREDIA JR – Tourism Minister
“Cabinet has decided to give us 400 acres of what was vested in Beltrade which is far better land than what we were using and we have created a concept land of what we want to do and leaving enough spaces for another hospital, another police station, the fire stations, schools and with sufficient spaces that is being left for this particular type of infrastructure and because of that we can have now six miles of road very smooth road that nobody can believe it can happen in the island of San Pedro and very shortly there will be the amendment of another three miles more apart from the six to get us to the airstrip and hopefully there will be space for an international airport.”
Of note is that the 6 miles of paved road in North Ambergris Caye was jointly funded by the San Pedro Town Council and the Government of Belize.
