According to my grapevine, the DOE has just issued another Stop Work Order.

i sure hope these stop orders come coupled with a HEFTY fine!
not something the developer will laughingly pull out of his shirt pocket.

Is a stop work order needed?

Last week there was no activity there at all.

You have to know Pierce if you are interested in stopping South Beach. By the way, he does read this or have it monitored. He is fascinated by Harriet I hear. His weakness is his character, not his plan.
I personally do not have much hope for any significant impediment from the authorities. There are too many conflicts of interest. Belize has some of the strongest Environmental laws in the world- sure. But it has compelling financial reasons to develop. The government needs a tax base, officials need a little extra, anyone involved at any level in the tourist industry, real estate, service, or construction industry wants development. The average Belizean fits that description.

There are 5 phases of South Beach. Based on Jeff's track record
in Reef Village that could be 30 years or more of construction if he has it approved phase by phase.

i believe your purty close on that assessment.
the GOB really, REALLY wants money.
they are willing to sell the country's soul, if someone offers to buy.

The government may want the money but more than that, they want the votes. There are many like minded people here, and the number is growing, who are well aware that the risk of allowing this huge project to go forward is that it will ruin the island and destroy its physical and economic environment. The stakes could not be greater. People from all parts of the San Pedro community are coming together to works to stop South Beach. There are members of this group from all walks of life ranging from environmentalists to developers to merchants to retired people to politicians.
