From my information the 30 mil. is for the water/sewer and I believe it may cost more than that in the end and require more funds. It is not a matter of cost per mile. A new water and sewer plant will have to be built up North and both are very expensive undertakings. It is something that must be done in my opinion to sustain what has already been constructed up North.

Water trucks travel the road all day and sometimes at night during the dry season to keep the businesses going. Sewer, well tests have been done on the lagoon side and everyone has already heard the results of these studies for years. This is a project that is inevitable and will only cost more if put off into the future.

I attended the first meeting but I'm not on Island at present so I couldn't attend this one. The notes I read where approximately what was said at the first meeting with the exception of the road, which is a new and separate project. Those lots that are unsold and all others will certainly be worth more when both of these projects are completed. In addition North San Pedro will be a much better place to live from the view of the environment; business and private property when these projects are completed.

The water project is much needed.

I'm not so sure about the sewer side unless it can be designed and built in such a way that it doesn't produce objectionable odours such as those we get from the system they installed on the southern part of Ambergris. Some of the lift stations and vent pipes do whiff quite badly especially during hotter spells.

File this with the Mexico Rocks Reserve proposal since it falls in the area of the reserve called MataCayo Frances Wetlands Reserve //
Don't get too excited about flushing responsibly just yet.

It’s official…..
The road going North of the bridge is officially started. It has been graded all the way from Belizean Shores/Coco Beach area to almost the police sub station in Tres Cocos. It is moving quite quickly.

They have graded down the back track in Tres Cocos, which suggests that is the route they are going to take. Good news for the beachfront owners if that is indeed the case!

Well isn't that just grand for the beachfront owners. Again, no master plan, no vision, no discussion, just fire. No ready, and no aim.

The town council, ministry of works and water company have held numerous public meetings regarding these works over the past couple of years and it has been in the forefront of news recently. The "main" road is the back Tres Cocos road as the road that most currently use actually dead-ends as it is only a subdivision access road. None of this is new, it is just finally going into effect.
