MP HON. PETER DAVID
ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 02ND, 2010_
Residents of H.A. Blaize Street, Cooper Hill and surrounding communities, have welcomed government’s efforts at refurbishing bathroom and toilet facilities in the area.
 
The EC$70,000 project consists of the construction of two new bathrooms and two toilets, as well as the rebuilding of steps – with handrails – leading from the H.A. Blaize Street main road to an area close to Cooper Hill known as “The Cocoa.’’
 
The project, which was undertaken by the Ministry of Housing, Lands and Community Development last November, is almost completed. But residents like Augustus Marshall are already looking forward to its official opening.
 
He is happy that MP for the Town of St. George, Peter David, moved speedily to respond to the cries of the community for the refurbishment of the facilities.
 
“It was good that the people who live in the area had brought it to the parliamentary representative to let him know that they were very much in need of having the steps and the bathroom and toilet facilities,” he said.
 
The project also provided temporary employment for community members, something that’s appreciated by Jude ‘Farouk’ Depradine.
 
“The guys who were employed got a little change to help them do their Christmas shopping,” said Depradine.
 
The bathroom and toilet facilities are already in use, although electricity is still to be installed.
 
The soon-to-be held opening ceremony will be attended by MP David and by representatives of the Ministry of Housing, Lands and Community Development, which undertook the project.
 
Claudius Monah, another area resident, described the project as a “good initiative,’’ saying the old facilities were in a “deplorable condition and not suitable for use.’’
 
He recommends refurbishing and upgrading of the Carenage Road should be considered for attention in the near future.
 
Mr. David, who is serving his second term as MP, has said that he is committed to helping his constituents and the people of Grenada to the best of his ability and with all means possible.
 
“This is what I’ve always been trying to do since I entered politics,’’ said Mr. David, who is also Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation. “I’m at the service of the people as a Member of Parliament and as a minister of government.’’
