Government seeking to revitalize Roseau

first_imgLocalNews Government seeking to revitalize Roseau by: – May 13, 2014 Sharing is caring! Share Share The conceptual plans to revitalize the City were presented at the State House on TuesdayThe Dominica Labour Party administration has revealed plans to revitalize and transform the Capital City of Roseau.These plans, that will potentially transform the City, alleviate traffic congestion and attract visitors and investors, were revealed during a town hall meeting at the State House conference room on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.Ian Fields of 3S-Bridges/NSG West Indies Limited of Barbados presented the concept design for the upgrading of Roseau to members of the Roseau City Council, business owners, engineers, architects, bankers and other members of the corporate community.The concept proposal includes a comprehensive water drainage system, street upgrades with handicap access ramps, a new West bridge, convenient parking facilities, defined bus stands, beautification of the street scape, Botanic Gardens bypass, more defined and regular sized foot walks, covering of drains as well as the relocation of utility lines underground.The purpose was to introduce the concept to the business community, obtain their suggestions as well as to obtain ideas or comments on how it can be enhanced. The concept design for the upgrading of Roseau was presented to members of the Roseau City Council, business owners, engineers, architects, bankers and other members of the corporate community.Speaking at that meeting, acting prime minister, Ambrose George said the City has lost some of its “historical charm and appeal” due to decades of urban stagnation.He added that the “we have allowed, to some extent, development to go on in isolation of that architectural heritage and sheer aesthetics and efficiencies for space”.Hence, the task before the government now is to undertake measures to reverse these trends by putting in place a series of plans that will be directly beneficial to the residents of Roseau, merchants, visitors and the people who commute to and from the City daily.“Government is therefore obligated to make the Capital City, Roseau more conducive to a richer, social, economic and an environmental co-existence for both locals and visitors”.A conceptualziation of how the proposed West Bridge would lookMinister George added that in order for the City to compete on a regional and international level, it must be upgraded and revitalized.“We must also recognize that Roseau and Dominica, as a nation, must compete regionally and internationally for its share of the tourism business and be an attractive proposition for those in the international community seeking to establish foothold or leisure in the region”.“Government is also very aware that the Capital is the heartbeat of the nation and that the social and economic well-being of the citizen is largely influenced on the status of the City,” Mr George said.Meanwhile, Mayor of Roseau, Irene John welcomed the initiative as it presents “the dawn of a new day” for the City and Dominica.“We in the Roseau City Council welcome this new initiative and we pledge our undivided support to make this project a reality since this development is something that the new council envisage,” Mayor John said.– / 16Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Tweet 153 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Leafs land recruits to gear up for the KIJHL stretch run

first_imgDave McLellan has been around the junior-hockey-coaching block more than once.However, during his tenure behind the bench he’s never been part of a team that has been snake bitten as much as the Green and White.For the umpteenth weekend this season the Nelson Leafs enter Kootenay International Junior Hockey League play with the coaching staff not knowing how many or which players will be taking to the ice.“If I knew the players we had playing maybe I could tell you what we expect this weekend,” a puzzled McLellan said on the eve of Thursday practice at the NDCC Arena.Nelson is on the road for a pair of games against Eddie Mountain opposition.Friday, the Leafs are in Invermere to face the Columbia Valley Rockies before concluding the two-game swing Saturday in Fernie against the Ghostriders.“At this stage I’m hopeful we can find a way to win both games,” McLellan added. “That would be great for us, but at this stage we’ll just see what happens.”McLellan is optimistic some players that have been out of the lineup for quite some time — Patrick Croome and Blair Andrews — may be back on the bench for the weekend.However, while Nelson could get two key starters back, two more are in sick bay — Matt MacDonald and Aaron Brewer — and two others — Dylan Williamson and Brandon Chow — remain out of the lineup.Next home game for the Leafs, 1-3 to start 2015, is Friday, January 23 against Creston Valley Thunder Cats.Help is, hopefully, on its wayLeaf coach Dave McLellan felt like the Maytag Repairman prior to the BC Hockey January 10 roster deadline period as no one was calling the Heritage City franchise skipper.Still McLellan was able to snatch a few prospects from outside the KIJHL.McLellan traded for the rights to defenceman Brendan Grier from Comox of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. Grier, a 6’5”, 230-pound defenceman is a prospect of the Victoria Royals of the Western Hockey League.McLellan is trying to convince Grier to return to hockey this season after the 17-year-old rearguard decided to hang up the skates due to a personal matter.The Leaf coach did find 17-year-old Tyler Fyfe, who was out of hockey after going home from the Peninsula Panthers of the VIJHL.The six-foot, 170-pound Fyfe was traded to Peninsula from Creston Valley Thunder Cats of the KIJHL.Nelson also welcomed back suspended forward Brendan Smith to the lineup.The six-foot 180-pound blueliner was hurt since being suspended by the Leafs in October.Time to put up, or shut up for Green and WhiteNow that the rosters are set, it’s time for the Leafs to make a statement or dig out the golf clubs for the summer break.“Getting ready for the playoffs been our main focus since we came back from the (Christmas) break,” McLellan said.“What we need is to get our key players back in the lineup to figure out what we’ve got but that’s difficult to do until we get them back,” he adds.McLellan likes the make up of the Leafs on paper.He’s happy with the forwards, is happy to have been able to solidify the blueline and is confident one of the two goalies — Adam Maida or Joey Karrer — will step up to lead the Leafs come playoff time.“I’ve talked to and challenged both goalies to be better and get ready for the playoff process,” McLellan said.“We’re going to see who is going to step up and be that guy for us in the playoffs.”Next up, Rockies, RidersNelson’s opposition Friday, Columbia Valley, currently sits last in the Eddie Mountain Division with an 8-26-0-0-6 mark.However, the Rockies are on a one game win streak.Meanwhile, Fernie, Saturday’s test, leads the Eddie Mountain group at 28-9-1-0-2. But the Riders have lost three straight heading into the weekend.last_img read more
