Monkey Business Expected: Location of Town Hall Meeting For Barbados Waterpark Still Unknown


Water Park Developer Won’t Reveal Meeting Location Until Last Minute

The developer of the Caribbean Splash Water Park in Barbados has not yet announced the location for the Town Hall meeting that they promised to hold on Monday, July 10, 2006.

This is the same stunt they pulled last time – when they cancelled the previously scheduled June 7, 2006 community meeting at the last moment – after failing to set a location.

Caribbean Splash Inc. has had months to set and announce the meeting location, so it seems obvious that they are trying to make things as inconvenient as possible for citizens who want to attend.

Unethical Behaviour, Faked Survey, Attempts To Limit Debate

As we reported in our previous article Barbados Caribbean Splash Waterpark – Faked Survey, Spin Control and Other Monkey Business -local residents are charging that the developers of a proposed water park in Graeme Hall, Christ Church, Barbados, faked the results of a published survey and are using unethical methods to control information and to limit public debate.

This latest seems to be more of the same.

Does Anyone Know Where The Meeting Will Be Held?

Attention: Caribbean Splash Inc.,

If we are wrong here, just let us know. Has an ad appeared in a newspaper? Was a media release given to television and radio stations? The latest Nation Newspaper article mentions nothing about the July 10th meeting.

Please let us know where, when and how you published the location for the upcoming Town Hall meeting. Better yet – send us a copy of the ad and we will post it here at no charge.

  1. Why would anyone locate a Water park near Grame Hall Swamp?

    Prehaps they do not understand the risk to the environment.

    Why not locate it in St.Lucy? Mr.Kellman should be pleased to see investment in his Constituency.

    A good location may be Harrisons Point when the prisoners leave.

    You make a very good point, Hants… why on earth would they locate a water park near the Graeme Hall Swamp?

    The location is all wrong, wrong, wrong – not only from an environmental standpoint, but even considering traffic flows and congestion.

    So why the big push by government to locate the park in Graeme Hall watershed?

    This stinks in more ways than one.

  3. The proposed site is a wonderful piece of land, but not for a water park. Who allows someone in Ministry of Agriculture to hand out a lease on this prime site? What were the inducements involved to do so? Very fishy!

    What is very, very clear, is that one unhappy person, who has access to the internet, is poking a nest of, what would be a benign bees nest. One person with an attitude who thinks that he can speak for the majority! this is so funny! Why doesn’t this ONE unhappy person take a petition, take 100 people, and take a formal survey??? Gosh…ONE would find out just how lonely ONE is.
