New Traffic Light System

In an effort to continue taking steps towards creating a smart city, today the Belize City Council inaugurated a new traffic light system installed at the Neal Pen Road and Central American Boulevard intersection. This pedestrian light crossing system is the first of its kind in Belize City, but it surely won’t be the last. This installation is a vital step towards optimizing traffic safety and convenience for all our residents and we continue to strive to execute projects like these that have the sole purpose of being a benefit to our people.

Thank you to the Belize City Council and to Ambassador Remus Li-Kuo Chen of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and his team for their commitment and contribution towards this project.

We are eager to experience the impact of this venture and encourage all of you to do your part in helping to preserve these lights and adhere to the rules that are put in place for your safety.

Meet The Council

Our meet the council initiative continues as young and curious minds filled City Hall this afternoon! Mayor Bernard Wagner, Deputy Oscar Arnold and the councilors hosted the Standard 3 class of Our Lady of the Way RC School. Our eager students had many questions in hand and the council members left no question unanswered. Our visitors also expertly recited their school’s mission statement, vision statement and motto.

In addition to sharing some childhood stories, the mayor and councilors took this opportunity to highlight the importance of respect, persistence and self-confidence as they work to achieve their dreams. The session concluded with lunch and entertainment for the kids. We cannot express enough what a joy it was to spend this afternoon with you all.

Super Sale 1 Year Anniversary

The Belize City Council extends a big THANK YOU to all the businesses and residents who celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary Super Sale with us! We embarked on this downtown area revival initiative a year ago and we are so grateful to have been able to witness its consistent growth and impact. What was once a sale zone with 20 businesses and 1,500 consumers now hosts over 80 businesses and 15,000 consumers. This would not be possible without the support and cooperation of the participating businesses and our Belize City Council team.

The Downtown Area Revival continues…don’t miss the next one!

Vendors interested in a space can contact the Belize City Council PR Department at 223-4014 or pr.customercare@belizecitycouncil.org. We’ll see you on the Alberts!
