#339823 - 06/01/09 11:51 PM Sugar Caye Development Announces new subdivision
Marty Online   happy


Sugar Caye Development proudly announces its plans to develop a new subdivision in San Pedro Town for local residents. To be situated next to the DFC Area, this subdivision will be unlike many others since the filled lots will equipped with water and electrical service installed prior to sales. To avoid a need for a large amount of dredging, a canal system will be used to provide the majority of the fill required, Sugar Caye Development sees the importance of connecting these lots of Belize Water Serviceís sewage system; eliminating the need for septic tanks.

The proposed subdivision area has suffered a large loss of mangrove forests due to other previous developments in the surrounding area, because of this, Sugar Caye Development intends to plant over 45,000 new mangrove trees in the existing and new canal system to replenish the mangroves previously lost. In this effort, Sugar Caye Development will use the professional expertise of Bob Riley of Mangrove.org. In the mid 1990ís, Riley began research in mangrove ecosystems and into the failure modes that ubiquitously characterized mangrove restoration projects. He ultimately developed methodologies for the successful long-term establishment of mangroves in non-native environments and his research findings have been published inepter-review journals. Mangroves will be planted to provide a natural buffer and his expertise will be highly instrumental in the replanting project for Sugar Caye Development.


Mr. Frank Panton, chief hydraulic engineer, is spearheading the subdivision effort. Panton received his degree from the International Institute for Hydraulic and Enviornment Engineering and is recognized for his work with the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) but is also well known for his expertise as it relates to water resources engineering. Panton will be working closely with Riley but will also be consulting with the following organizations: San Pedro Town Council, Brooksmith Consulting (Aquatic Ecology Consultants), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), NOAA Coastal Service Center, Forestry Department, Environmental Department, Ministry of Works, Belize Water Service Limited (BWS), Belize Electricity Limited (BEL), Health Department and Guadalupe Rosado (Coral Reef Alliance, San Pedro Junior College).



Sugar Caye Development has worked hand in hand with the San Pedro Town Council who assisted in gathering all information required for permits. Sugar Caye Development has worked with the Department of Environment and an Environmental Compliance Plan has been approved along with other necessary permits.

Work is set to commence soon and as such Sugar Caye Development asks t he kind cooperation from island residents. The road leading to the San Pedro Marina has been continuously used as a garbage dump illegally and on an ongoing basis. As such it is requested that everyone restrains from dumping garbage in that area. A clean up campaign in that area is being organized and any person that would like to volunteer to help can contact Frank Panton at 667-7745.

Wasn't Frank on the ACCSD committee?
No mention of his working with that group now.

I don't think Frank is the problem here.
Its the concept.
People living there will need even more help than the San Mateo folks.Its where the island waste is treated and then released, add that to the type of environment we have at San Mateo and you really have a delightful place to live.

Shame on you Elbert! Of all people you should know better but you just go on misrepresenting the facts...this development is nearby the modern, well-managed sewer ponds but is not adjacent to them. The property is being raised and roads are being built. That is nothing like the San Mateo situation.
I have no interest in this except seeing Elbert be honest.

I hear you, but 450 houses with people in them could be worse.
