New Barbuda town to be constructed

Renderings for a new Codrington have been completed the Government of Antigua and Barbuda has announced.
A Barbudan architect was given the mandate to work on developing the plan for a new Codrington following Hurricane Irma.
“He presented the Cabinet with a beautiful version of a town that is to be 850 acres large, subdivided into scores of lots of ⅓ acre each, on which would be built homes, businesses and other utilitarian buildings,” the government said.
“The revised plan springs from a 2007 rendition ordered by Mr Trevor Walker, ten years ago, and about which nothing was done. The current Codrington is 110 acres large,” added government’s Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst.
Meantime, the Cabinet then directed the Minister of Foreign Affairs to write to the UNDP and the World Bank, asking both to provide jointly the US$80 million required in financial resources—a fraction of which was raised during the October 2017 Pledging Conference—to build houses for Barbudan families.
“The 400 homes that were completely destroyed by Hurricane Irma are the primary object of the Cabinet’s request,” Hurst said.

  1. Hope they construct a new mentality too and get rid of some of that backward thinking they got going on in their minds.
