Dominica has almost completed its latest round of new, hurricane-proof homes, health centres and community facilities across the island. This constitutes the government’s Housing Revolution, sponsored by the Citizenship by Investment Programme. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit made the announcement with Dr Irving McIntyre, the Minister for Health, Wellness and New Health Investment. Representing the Roseau Valley constituency in Parliament, Dr McIntyre announced that a new multifunctional community centre in Trafalgar will open by August.
The Trafalgar Community Centre will serve as a research, resource and community centre and is one of the two facilities under the Housing Revolution. Each will feature a multifunctional events space, a sick bay, a clinic, and a dining and activity hall.
The government website describes it as "a place where at-risk youths can receive help, neighbours can socialise with each other and anyone can receive educational classes and participate in recreational activities."
Dr McIntyre also announced that the government has built a new multi-million-dollar road that connects the remote village of Cochrane to the national network. Skerrit confirmed that the government is planning another 150 units in the Roseau Valley alone, part of the CBI-funded Housing Revolution.
