The St James Parish Council has started an $8 million project to restore the historic Creek Dome landmark.

The project is being undertaken with the help of the Tourism Enhancement Fund.

Although a declared heritage site, the landmark located at the intersection of Creek and Dome Streets in Montego Bay was in a dilapidated state for more than a decade.

The Mayor of Montego Bay says the site will be restored beyond its original splendor and will also include a statue befitting the history of the area.

The Creek Dome was built in 1837 and was once the only source of reliable water supply for the city of Montego Bay.

Mayor Harris says the St James Parish Council is looking at establishing a City Tour that will incorporate the Creek Dome and other historical markers across Montego Bay.

Former Reggae Boy Ian 'Pepe' Goodison has been named by The Sun as one of six men arrested as part of a football spot-fixing investigation.
