DIVERSIFICATION, THE KEY TO MANCHESTER’S FUTURE

On any given weekday afternoon, the sight of scores of workers, streaming to and from the  Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) operation on Ward Avenue in Mandeville, is enough to provide hope for the residents of Manchester, jobs, jobs, jobs and reportedly more to come, but as a parish, let us not put all our eggs in one basket based on the lessons learnt from those garment operations from the past.

The planned expansion of Highway 2000 from Mineral Heights to Mandeville and the Negril to Mandeville road project, which is slated to bypass Spur Tree hill, coupled with the completed North-South Highway, will create much easier access to our beloved parish, which will eventually be the place to live, work, raise families, do business and retire, so let us begin to create the enabling environment to welcome investors and persons who have long dreamed of experiencing our solubrious climate.

Critical to all these dreams is water, it cannot be that millions of gallons of water flow underground through the parish daily, ending up in the Aligator Hole area and we cannot find a way to extract it before it decends to over two thousand feet below Mandeville and then we have to pump it all the way up again, madness, where there is a will, there is always a way. All on board?
