I'll be there on Thursday to oppose South Beach, and I hope to see you all there, also.

In all honesty, if these are your true feelings/beliefs, I hope you do attend and will be open to true dialog regarding the project. As always, have facts to back your stance as I am sure the "other side" will have a plethora of their own facts and figures.

For all planning to attend: good luck no matter to which side of this issue you may belong. Make sure you are heard and seen.

It's great to be .....

I'll be there with an open mind. I hope to see some good plans. I hope they're not using that rendering of Ocean Drive still though.

Wow Amanda has 2,275 posts and she has only been a member of this board 8 years that doesn't even work out to one post a day.

If some people spent their energy on working to make things better rather than just boasting about themselves and knocking others down. Maybe some positive changes will happen. I for one will be at this meeting (if it ever happens).

I don't think the mangroves should be characterized as a "desert". I have been there, waded and fished there and bird watched there. It is an excellent rookery and the immature fish populations are good. Do not confuse the whole backside with the mosquito ponds by the road which are cut off from tidal action by prior development and road work. large fish like tarpon will be more visible if canals are put in but to suggest that dredging improves the environment overall is misleading.
The excuse to put that development in should be that the economic needs of an essentially third world country overwhelm the need for strict environmental protectionism. If you are an American and are interested in paradise you like it the way you found it I guess and are therefore going to oppose a huge development like South Beach(unless you are a realtor). Ultimately the Belizeans will decide and many of the ones I know are conflicted. Here is a thought which I wish I could be there to share. Insist on some mitigation or change in the plans to preserve some of the environment as it exists. I know they will not be able to do anything to the mayan site anyway. Maybe make that the center of a preserve. It will increase property values long term anyway. Who says this has to be an all or nothing deal?

Ha ha, I know I was just having fun. Belize N Us has never shied away from confirming his true identity. In my book I consider that to be a very redeeming social skill.

Don't forget to call him a "coward", don't forget to say "we don't need people like you here", please don't leave out "just stay home". And best of all PLEASE don't forget to tell him he's acting like he thinks he's GOD for having and expressing an opinion that may not coincide with yours.

Not at all, I think the quote below was about people who live there but make their living via the internet and may or may not have a work permit. They may or may not pay taxes to Belize on their internet income. That certainly had nothing to do with me. How about you?!?
