Community centers refurbished to meet hurricane shelter standards

Posted: Wednesday, February 15, 2017. 11:35 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The Community Centre in the Village of Lucky Strike is currently being refurbished, its roof being replaced, bathrooms built, and proper doors and windows installed.

Area Representative and Minister of National Emergency Management, Edmond Castro, explained that the works being done with funds from the Government of Belize will enable the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) to utilize it as a Hurricane Shelter when it is needed for that purpose.

Chairman of Lucky Strike Village, Andrew Chacon, says his council and residents of the village are thankful for the works being done on the community centre. He explained that ever since he was first elected 13 years ago as a member of the village council, it has been a top priority of his to have the community centre repaired, and he is pleased that it is now being done under his leadership and that of  the area representative.

Castro further explained that similar work is being done on the Community Centre in the Village of St. Paul’s Bank (Belize River Valley), also in Belize Rural North, which is being upgraded as well to Hurricane Shelter standard.
