Securing the City
Chairperson of the Revitalisation of Bridgetown Initiative, Sharon Christie told today’s launch of Bridgetown Alive, that details would soon be disclosed to expand the existing CCTV security project in Bridgetown and surrounding areas.
She said that project was sponsored by the Barbados Tourism Investment Incorporated, but the chamber would work closely with the police.
“Lots of areas in Bridgetown we realise need to be improved in physical looks and we have a number of significant projects that we are working on as we speak — quite exciting things. If you think the boardwalk was something, yes it was, but wait to see what it’s going to look like when we’re finished,” she assured.
Christie also observed that communication had been a problem, where the right hand did not know what the left hand was doing and people did not know all the events taking place in the City.
“Last week we published our first Bridgetown Alive News, which is intended to be a one-stop shop for activities in Bridgetown; that’s where you can go to find out what’s happening,” Christie added.
She said this information would be shared through the social media and otherwise, with the chamber’s 2,000 members in the City and the 9,000 people who work in Bridgetown.
