The Ambergris Caye Citizens for Sustainable Development has been formed as an organization dedicated to insuring that all development on Ambergris Caye and surrounding waters does not damage the fragile environment that supports the local economy.
We believe it is vital for the island that all projects are in compliance with the Ambergris Caye Development Master Plan as being developed by Coastal Zoning and Management.
Since this committee has immediate issues of concern about the South Beach Development:
1. Its proximity to Hol Chan and area fragile eco-systems;
2. The population/structure density of the development plan;
3. The developerís previous projects on the island.
We, therefore, request an extension until such time as an independent Environmental Impact Assessment is done and that the developer be required to adhere to the Ambergris Caye Master Plan which is currently being compiled by Coast Zoning and Management.
