THE BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT WILL HELP REVITALIZE THE TOWN OF GROS ISLET.
Phase One of the project includes the pedestrianization of the Gros Islet waterfront. It will ensure safety while also encouraging the expansion of commercial activity on the waterfront. Phase Two will see the repairing and expansion of the Gros Islet Jetty allowing for the berthing of small and medium sized boats and yachts.
Another component of the project is the establishment of a public park in the area known as Pigeon Point south. The new public facility will comprise amenities to encourage healthy living and family gatherings, as it will include a children’s playground, outdoor gym, picnic facilities, and vending booths for entrepreneurs of the community.
This project beautifully ties in with the Gros Islet Village Tourism project that aims to uplift public spaces, construct new public facilities and improve the facades of residential homes in and around the waterfront.
Under the Village Tourism concept, community entrepreneurs will also be offered duty free concessions, tax incentives, and administrative support in order to establish new businesses such as bars, restaurants, guest houses, water sports and other entrepreneurial ventures.
