AARON HUMES Reporting: This morning, Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley and City Councilor Philip Willoughby were on a walk-through tour of the Conch Shell Bay area north and east of Vernon Street.
It is one of the poorest areas of the City and Mayor Darrell Bradley says the Council has agreed to intervene with development in the form of filling lots and general redevelopment.
The neighborhood is located in the Albert Division, where Councilor Willoughby wants to challenge incumbent Herman Longsworth. But he says it’s about truly helping area residents who have been neglected for so long.
Also on the tour were Commissioner of Lands and Surveys Wilbert Vallejos and Bishop of the Anglican Church Right Reverend Philip Wright.
They along with the Hand in Hand Ministry are part of a group tending to the immediate needs of the area.
One of those, says Commissioner Vallejos, is to correct the chaotic situation he says exists with regard to land ownership.
The Commissioner says his employees will be going in next week to ascertain the current situation with a view to preparing proper land titles.
