Small businesses make up the very heart of the Belize City Council so we spear no expense in catering to the needs of those needing a space to get exposure of their products and services to the incoming tourists of the Fort George area. Insert the Memorial Park kiosks into the equation and a worthwhile solution was born. These colourful and well-built kiosks will be available in the coming months and it offers a space to our budding entrepreneurs. For more details on these contact the Belize City Council’s LED Unit for Ms Carissa Casanova.
Our Tourism Industry is flourishing and as such we need to ensure some of our key players such as our Tour Guides have a proper place to get settled in preparation of an active day. As well it was recognized that the Hair Braiders’ have become synonymous with the hustle and bustle that attracts tourists to the Fort George area. So taking this into consideration, a Pavilion was built to house these 2 Associations.
Everyone with a Trade or Liquor License and also persons making Property Tax payments need to call Belize City Council’s Compliance Department (227-2308 Ext 271/270) to update their information so as to keep abreast of current information and updates as it becomes available.
We can all collectively agree that the Commercial Center building on Regent Street has become an eyesore to everyone in view. However, with the Rehabilitation Project well underway we hope to restore the pride and beauty to one of our city’s main focal points for residents and tourists alike. The Belize City Council and its partnership with Belize Tourism Board (BTB) and National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) have been successful in identifying the very best in architectural infrastructure and urban development for Belize. BCC is intent on renovating the Commercial Center and cementing its historical value where it stands.
Yesterday we took the city’s new vacuum truck to the streets to test its capability by cleaning drains.
Conclusion: the truck is a game changer. All the silt, stone, sand, debris, garbage, and waste that were built up almost to the top of the concrete pavement in this manhole were cleared within about 15 minutes.
The truck will be used not just to clean drains but also to relieve different areas in the city that get flooded due to rain.
Our Street rehabilitation project is reaching Eyre St.!
Today the works crew over at BWS began their upgrades on Eyre St. after which we will begin the process of concreting.
These works are a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Finance, myself, the UDP 11 and the Belize City Council. This is just a part of an expansive Street Rehabilitation Project that we are carrying out throughout the City.
