ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The Ministry of Public Works says it is working on the construction a new community centre for Gray’s Farm and a new health clinic for Cedar Grove, with both projects expected to come on stream this year.
“We have to do a design in Gray’s Farm, where a community centre will be erected right next to the basketball court,” government’s chief architect Wesley James revealed in an interview with OBSERVER Media.
He said the building would be constructed from scratch to meet the needs of residents in that community.
Over in Cedar Grove, James said he hoped that the construction of a new clinic for the area would begin “sooner rather than later.”
According to James an area has been allocated and a design approved for the facility.
“We are waiting to end the negotiations and put a contract in place so we can go to do the construction,” he said.
Once that contract is in place, James said construction of the facility that will also include a day care centre should begin thereafter.
The current clinic at Cedar Grove is said to be housed in a building that was not designed for that purpose.
