Remodeling the beach of Sosúa
Last Tuesday at the City Hall of Sosúa a meeting was held where all the owners of Casetas (beach bars and shops) on the beach were invited. There were also owners of hotels, restaurants and representatives of the church present. The meeting was organized by the Director of Tourism, Lorenzo Sancasani and the mayor Ilana Neumann of Sosúa. At this meeting, they announced that the beach will get a face lift and that above all, the souvenir shops will move to a new built shopping plaza.
The new plaza with a shopping center will be constructed at the entrance to the beach. This statement by the Director caused a lot of turmoil and panic among the beach shopkeepers. Lorenzo Sancasani tried to calm down the shop keepers by saying that all entrepreneurs have the right to a new shop. The mayor said that this is a unique opportunity to make the beach more attractive for tourism and adapt to the demands of tourists. The plans for the restructuring of the beach and the construction of the plaza are presented in the lobby of City Hall. The intention is to start the work soon and to complete it in 10 months.
