Major works are to come to the Orange Walk Central Park through the Belize Municipal Development Plan (BMDP), under the umbrella of the Social Investment Fund (SIF).
The project is being financed by the Government of Belize at a total cost of over a three hundred and thirty three dollars via a loan from the World Bank, of which 3 percent is being contributed by the Orange Walk Town Council.
The Orange Walk Central Park is to be the main focus of this infrastructure project which, according to a press release issued on Wednesday, is to be implemented by the Project Implementation Unit of BMDP.
The project is being carried out in all municipalities, but Wednesday saw the official launch of the project in Orange Walk through a meeting between the contractor Coleman Construction Limited of Belize, and the mayor of Orange Walk Town, Kevin Bernard.
The scope of the works includes raising the existing floor level of the Park, providing French drains, demolishing existing walkways, installing new concrete sidewalks and curbs, among other works. The recently donated benches are also to be repositioned, and the tourism information booth is to be repainted in accordance with the overall theme and design of the project.
