Monday August 17th 2015. Chrisbert Garcia Reporting: A ground breaking ceremony for the new, Ultra-Modern Sporting Complex was held Friday afternoon, August 14th, 2015 in Punta Gorda Town.
The ceremonies were carried out on the grounds where construction is soon to commence. This project began late last year, when the decision was made to demolish the old standing structure, as it was seen as a safety hazard due to its age and condition.
Even though the demolition came with a lot of criticism, the Mayor of Punta Gorda Fern Gutierrez and the UDP Standard Bearer for Toledo East, Peter Eden Martinez, promised that the residents of Punta Gorda would receive a state of the art facility capable of hosting thousands for any event.
The funding for this project, is coming from the Petro-Caribe loan. The press release from Belize Infrastructure Limited (BIL), mentioned that the cost for this project, will be $3,190,063.47. BIL’s release also stated that the design phase for the complex has been completed and the contract had already been awarded to accomplished contractors.
Friday’s groundbreaking ceremony ended with the symbolic digging of the shovel that marks the beginning of the building phase. The digging of the shovel was done by Standard Bearer Eden Martinez, Mayor Fern Gutierrez and representatives of Belize Infrastructure Limited.
