Falmouth short-changed

Published: Tuesday | December 17, 2013 Comments 0

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The historic town of Falmouth was 'transformed' and a state-of-the-art cruise ship pier built to accommodate the world's largest cruise ship.

The authorities and our trusted leaders made decisions that will forever plague the residents of Falmouth. Today, cruise passengers do not leave their all-inclusive vessel, hence no financial gain for the poor residents who have invested much in the anticipated and promised tourism boom to the community.

In addition, environmental agencies approved the removal of mangroves and dumping up of wetlands, leaving the community prone to flooding by light rainfall.

Poor decisions have left residents of Falmouth battling an economic and environmental disaster.
