I rarely start a thread on this forum, because my property is on the Placencia Peninsula, but here goes!
I don't know if many of you are aware of it, but there is a lot of development going on, or proposed, on the Placencia Peninsula. Unlike Ambergris Caye, which is fairly large, the peninsula is a very narrow stretch of land that has a much smaller carrying capacity. I am not going to describe all the development (devestation?!) that is going on there--you can read about that on the other forum.
Anyways, my question to you is this: Since AC, particularly San Pedro, has been under fairly "heavy" development for a long time, heavier than the peninsula anyway, how do you private (houses not condos) property owners feel about it? I am addressing both Belizeans and expats. How has the town, and the rest of the island, dealt with trash removal, sewage, water supply, etc.? How do the local people, who used to be primarily fisherfolk, feel about it? How has it affected the reef?
I appreciate your replies. I bought my property several years ago because I enjoyed the relative isolation of the peninsula, but now I am not so sure I am going to keep it. Maybe backabush will be better for me! Time will tell......
