IDB $30 million Belize tourism loan propectus?

WESTERN BELIZE RECREATIONAL AREA DEVELOPMENT SCHEME GETS MINOR MENTION from IDB $30 MILLION FOREIGN EXCHANGE LOAN

While the cynics watching government foreign exchange borrowing for development schemes, are highly skeptical about the vague concepts and ideas being floated for the borrowing of $30 million from the International Development Bank; undoubtedly a little bit will actually be used to do some work, before the rest gets stolen.
In that little bit of money, the TWIN TOWNS are mentioned vaguely as to a concept for tourism promotion. One of the items mentioned was fixing the Cahel Pech private hotel and Maya ruin street. Certainly it does need fixing, but so do a lot of other streets. Another item mentioned was some sort of National Government Tourist Information Office in the center of San Ignacio. Since this would be in competition with the many PRIVATE SECTOR tourist information offices and stores, I question the need for this. Even if it was needed, this should be a TOWN BOARD project and not that of the Central National Government, or BTB institution. Give a GRANT to the Town Board to do this and it might be acceptable? The Twin Towns badly need some proper transportation department highway signage to different places hanging from overhead cables.
What is needed among our minority share of this proposed predatory IDB loan, borrowing largesse, are a submerged tank for refueling aircraft at Central Farm and a pump. Currently tourist operation aircraft have to send a pickup truck, a 100 miles across country to the coast, to buy aviation fuel in five gallon containers for refueling purposes. Perhaps a pilot lounge and certainly an expanded tie down area, along with a row of rental hangers and warehouses for repair, maintainance and aircraft businesses and long term parking of planes out of the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
Additionally in Santa Elena Town developments, the re-surfacing with asphalt the boulevard to the Aguada Hotel and the side road into the 100 business and tourist residential community of Hillview on the slope of Green Parrot Valley should have both the one mile entrance road and the streets of the community fixed with culverts in the missing areas and asphalting all around. This is a growing tourist destination community, for fine arts, painting, music festival, pottery, wood carving, hammock making and guest houses and restaurant services. Do it right and it will become a HOT tourist destination community.
