    we need to get in the program. high rise buildings in Roseau housing multiple businesses at a time instead of single old houses everywhere. elevator problems you say? naaaah. young men will get the opportunity to go study to be elevator techs and be gainfully employed.

    roseau cant be expanded. roseau needs to be expanded. .they only way this can happen is by high rise buildings and the removal of smaller and older buildings. its the town for christ’s sake. our town should sell us, not embarrass us.

    also large car packs, you know? like four floors? ya get with the program. we can’t have carparks out there cause there’s no space. a couple of elevated ones would bring an income to the govt as well as security officers.

    high rise apartments like the one planned for pound will be valuable as well. not for free nuh! freeness is worries. eliminate all those ghetto areas. no offense.

    now we have space for a square and proper park.
    & develop a tourist district on the…

    And Please …I am begging … once the Portsmouth bus stop is reinstated to River Bank after the project , make it so that the buses must queue up in rank (not parallel to each other as before) causing them to hassle any pedestrian walking in that area and make a cacophony of noisy horns all day long
