The government has named ‘pride and cultural identity’ as the sixth priority area in its proposed recovery plan for the British Virgin Islands.
Government initially listed five crucial areas which would each get a share of the $721.3 million that will be used to fund the hurricane recovery efforts.
These areas are: Business and economy, infrastructure, human and social services, natural resources and climate change, and governance.
According to the plan, which is in its preliminary stages, ‘pride and cultural identity’ has made the priority list, and $2 million of recovery funds will be pumped into this area.
Specifically, the $2 million sum will be invested in the territory’s museums, national parks, historical sites, and other heritage sites.
Government is inviting residents to review and give feedback on the proposed plan.
Persons can provide feedback to the Disaster Recovery Coordinating Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit feedback in hard copy at the Committee’s office in the Ritter Building on Wickham’s Cay II.
