Very much needed. The biggest thing that has messed up Nassau and New Providence has been a severe lack of planning.

I have wondered if the politicians actually travel because if they did, they would have seen the wonders that some town planning could do for the country as a whole but for New Providence especially.

Hopefully the three projects in addition to the Downtown Redevelopment (well that has been on and off for 30 years) as well as the NPRIP and other thngs will finally produce what you speak of. Nassau is essentially a mix of inner city villages + suburbs.

No planning whatsoever, with the exception of the gated communities themselves. Look at paradise island and freeport and you see simple examples of what some simple planning and maintenance can do.

Hopefully it isnt too late to transform the island. This is why as much as it pains me to I can support the intentions of the government. though execution is piss-poor, the intentions are applaudable. I just question why just now have they decided to take this approach.
