Petter St. Jean, Member of Parliament for the Laplaine ConstituencyWhile access into the the Laplaine Constituency remains a challenge for the constituency, Member of Parliament for the area, Honourable Petter St. Jean says youth empowerment and development is a major focus area for him.“Another key area is that of youth empowerment and development and in that respect we are looking seriously at the whole issue of the development of sporting facilities but the task continues. This year we will seek to address the hardcourt in Delices to effect the fencing and lighting of the hardcourt and at the Laplaine playing field in conjunction with the Dominica Football Association. Additionally under the community based project we will address the stands and dress room area in Laplaine” he said during an exclusive interview with Dominica Vibes News.A major success of the constituency Honourable St. Jean notes, is the provison of water supply to the village of Delices, which has been extended to Boetica.“I need to speak here of one of our major achievements within the constituency; that is the provision of a 2.8 million dollar water project for the village of Delices and in recent times we have actually extended this service to village of Boetica. Boetica had an inherrent water problem and we have sought to address this by extending the project into Boetica. That has been completed the people are now taking full advantage of the new water system and pretty soon we will have the commissioning of that system” he said.Mr. St. Jean says as a result of the global economic situation the projects may not be moving at the pace that one would anticipate but much is happening within the constituency.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
