Belize City Land Reclamation

We all know that Belize City is at or below sea level, but do we know that Belize City was originally smaller than it is currently. The land mass that we know that makes up Belize City wasn't always as large.

Most of us are familiar with the reclamation project carried out on the Marine Parade Boulevard area in the early 2000's; however, there were two other reclamation projects carried out many years before the 2000 project that the younger folks might not know about.

The two other reclamations had to do with the joining of the Fort George Island with the rest of North Side, which was carried out by the Jefferson Construction Company of New Orleans, USA, in 1924. The other major reclamation was the one carried out on the South Side of Belize City in the area we now know as the Foreshore.
