One billion pesos from the President for the development of the Puerto Plata region
According to the Director of the Implementation Committee for Civil Works in the tourist areas (CEIZTUR), architect Kirsis De los Santos, President Danilo Medina made a billion pesos available to improve the infrastructure of the province of Puerto Plata. The past weekend the president paid a surprise visit to Puerto Plata to check on the progress of various projects. He visited the construction of the link road between the cruise port and Puerto Plata.
He also visited the renovation of the historic center and the construction of the amphitheater. According to De los Santos, the reconstruction of the beach of Sosúa is part of the second phase. This involves the construction of two shopping plazas at both entrances of the beach and setting up a pedestrian area in the main street Pedro Clisante. A part of the Pedro Clisante will be provided with a new attractive pavement with Victorian styled streetlights. The trees are cut down and will be replaced by palm trees. Even the water treatment plant near Cabarete will be put into use in the second phase. The entrepreneurs in the Pedro Clisante are very excited about all these beautiful initiatives. But they hope the work will not start in the high season (November to April), as it will lead to large revenue losses.
