NASSAU, BAHAMAS — North Abaco MP Darren Henfield advised yesterday that the government will begin construction on homes in Abaco for Hurricane Dorian victims by the end of the month.
The government has previously announced four housing projects on Abaco, and others on Grand Bahama.
During his presentation to the budget debate, Henfield outlined several housing projects on the island in the pipeline, in Central Pines, Spring City, and Wilson City.
He also pointed to planned housing projects through potential public, private, partnerships, advising that the DRA has already cleared the proposed site for the building of homes donated by the Bakers Bay group.
Henfield said it is anticipated that construction on model homes in that community will commence within the next two to three weeks.
Last June, Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis advised that 46 permanent homes will be developed in Abaco and gifted to families as part of a public-private partnership between the government and Discovery Land Company.
