This thread is intended for registered property owners North of the Bridge.
All others can debate in The Road North thread.
Those of you who know me will remember what we did last Feb-March when we funded the grading of the road ourselves.
After speaking with the New Mayor as I promised he has basically said that there is no funding available for the North Road in terms of hard cash, but he would be willing to listen to our proposals and possibly help with equipment and manpower. He also informed me that the road, with a few exceptions is basically staying where it is. It is a legal road otherwise the traffic wardens would have no authority to write tickets North of the Bridge. We can debate the legality of the road but that is another issue.
I am talking about what can we do TODAY to improve the safety and comfort of driving the North Road. I am not talking about an urban park with bike paths and flowers, maybe that is the goal 10 -20 years from now but for today I am talking about a dirt road the one we use everyday that is there now.
Dirt roads are easy to move, paved ones are not. So until there is a Master Plan for NAC
What can we do today to save our backs, golf carts suspension and clothes from getting full of mud everytime we drive the road, So this thread is for the people who use the road all the time.
So here is what I had in mind.
Here is an example of how we might break it down.
Lets start for instance just with Condo units and hotels (not including vacant land holdings or Single family dwellings)
Here is a list of them from the bridge to Sueno del mar.
0.95 Bermuda Landing
0.97 Villas at Del Rio
1.14 Reef Village (off beach)
1.15 The Cloisters
1.29 Waterford (the HOTEL)
2.27 Grand Caribe
2.31 Bella Vista Guest House
2.44 Ocean Aire
2.63 White Sands Cove
2.66 Cocotal Inn
2.78 El Pescador Lodge and Villas
2.87 Capricorn Resort
3.04 Capt. Morgan's Retreat
3.33 Coco Beach Resort
3.36 Coral Reef Villas
3.43 Belizean Shores Resort
3.69 Seascape Villas
3.71 Blue Dolphin
3.78 Las Terrazas
3.88 Journey's End Resort
4.5 Los Encantos
4.64 Caye Villas
4.88 El Castillo Del Arena
5.11 Azul Resort& Rojo Lounge
5.21 Mata Chica Beach Resort
5.3 Playa Blanca Villas
5.57 Xaman Ek Retreat & Spa
5.71 La Perla del Caribe
6.01 Portofino Resort
6.67 Costa Maya Reef Resort
7.17 Belize Legacy
8.11 Blue Reef Island Resort
9.11 Saphire Beach
9.54 Bright Water Beach Resort
12.9 Sueno del Mar
13.4 Tranquility Bay Beach Resort
Thatís 41 Resort condos. If we were to say average $100.00bz per month per property, that would bring in 4,100.00 per month just from the resorts and condos.
Lets take the first one on the list, Solitude. Solitude has 6 units. 6/100 = $16bz per month per household. Now someplace like reef village or Grande Caribe, we would assess so that each unit/owner /room pays about $16bz per month. I donít think that that is unreasonable at all.
The road does not have to be done every month, and canít be in rainy season. So the months that we are not actually physically working on the road and any residules, the money would be diverted to the reserve fund, which would be used to purchase hardcore and culverts, Tech consulting, and eventually some solar street lights.
No it is not a perfect solution, but it is a start.
Again, This thread is for North of the bridge registered property owners only.
All others Please use the Road North thread as I donít want this one getting off track.
