Ask for More

Dear Source:

As we can all be impressed with the William and Punch proposed development for land use, jobs and island taxes, we got to put the brakes on and ask for more. After attending the public hearing last night in Frederiksted, it is obvious that the developer has planned no general public improvements. I would hope our government would step to the plate and secure at the developers expense:
1. Roadway improvements from airport through Frederiksted town to the resort road
2. Sanitary sewer system that would eliminate ocean outfalls
3. Island bike paths
4. State of the art power source to generate some electric
