UPDATE: Friday July 7, 2006 9:23am

We are now told verbally that the Caribbean Splash waterpark meeting is in fact still on Monday, July 10, 2006. We are told that the article in the Nation was incorrect in stating that the meeting is tonight.

We cannot find any advertisement from Caribbean Splash Inc.

One of our contacts at The Nation News states that the wrong date was published because “someone” provided the Nation with incorrect information.

We Are Still Unsure Of The Meeting Date

More confusion. No openess and no fair notice from Caribbean Splash Inc. We can’t find any public advertisement of the meeting. Has anyone seen a formal meeting notice from Caribbean Splash Inc.?

Scoundrels, indeed. We don’t trust them anymore.

Original BFP Article…

Just as we predicted… as everyone predicted.

The developers of the controversial Barbados Caribbean Splash Waterpark have once again shifted the date of the long-promised town hall meeting – and once again there was little public notice of the last-minute change.

Long scheduled for Monday, June 10, 2006, the meeting is now “apparently” on for today… Friday, July 7, 2006 at 7pm at the Christ Church Parish Church Centre, Church Hill, Christ Church. We say “apparently” because with all the trickery going on, one can only guess as to whether the meeting will really be held.

The above few lines in last Monday’s Barbados Business Authority was the only notice that we know of, and was sent in by a reader.

After cancelling the previous June 7, 2006 public meeting at the last moment, Caribbean Splash Inc. scheduled another meeting for Monday, July 10, 2006 – which they have now moved to today, Friday July 7th.

As we detailed in previous articles, local residents are charging that the developers of the 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 nonsense is just more of the same.
