Former two term Belize City Mayor Zenaida Moya is going to open a new restaurant over the river, at the mouth of the Belize Harbour.

Moya today confirmed that she is the investor behind the project, which will occupy the space formerly used by the Triple J boat service.

It came to our attention because of the piles being driven - and the news that the Local Building Authority had issued a stop order on the project.

But Moya today told us that the issue has been resolved and the stop order has been lifted. She says the project has received clearance from all relevant authorities.

She expects it to finish within three months and says she's thinking about naming it Caribbean Breeze.

She received financing from the Holy Redeemer Credit Union. Moya says it will employ 12 persons at startup - and says she's doing it as an example of investing in the Southside of the City.

Old Mayor Vs. New?

On Monday we told you about Zeniada Moya's new private life venture: she's opening a restaurant in the mouth of the Belize Harbour, at the Courthouse Wharf.

The restaurant - which she wants to name Caribbean Breeze - will sit above the water where the Triple J terminal used to be.

It's a great plan with financing from the Holy Redeemer Credit Union, except for one thing: the Local Building Authority - which is an arm of the Belize City Council issued a stop order.

Moya told us the stop was lifted, but the current Mayor today told us that it is still in effect.

Here's what Moya's successor Mayor Darrell Bradley had to say about it today:

Darrell Bradley - Mayor, Belize City Council
"Well, the current status is that there is a stop order in force, which has been issued by our city engineer in terms of ensuring that everything was above board. The Local Building Authority had considered already, and they had given their tentative approval because that project has met all the requirements in terms of having their plans approved, having their enviromental approval and lots of the approvals from the Central Government. The only consideration was really to see that it would fit in line with all persons in terms of the residences. The court uses that area; there are security issues, parking, and other things like that. This was the hesitation with the Local Building Authority. So, they did not issue an approval, and no works can go on pending that approval."

Jules Vasquez
"So right now, works should not be proceeding on that project."

Darrell Bradley
"My specific instructions are that no works are proceeding. Some initial works in terms of the driving of piles occurred on Friday, and at a certain point on Friday, I understand that those things had halted. On Monday, no works continued, and today, Wednesday, I understand that no works have continued. The board will meet again this evening to give their approval, or to say that the approval will conditional, or that they do not approve. I, for one, am excited about that business venture, and I think that it bodes well for attracting business in that area. Residents will of course have complaints about the noise being so close to the court, and that is why we have a board that is comprised of technical persons, as well as councilors of the Belize City Council, that considers those complaints to see how best we can work out all the issues. In terms of the vision and the idea business there, it's a good idea."

Tomorrow we'll tell you what the local Building Authority decided in its meeting today...
