How is the trail going to be maintained, who is going to meet these costs, how are the operational costs going to be covered? We see the issue of optimization and segmenting the trail, we have fourteen segments, can they all be developed for different purposes to serve different specific needs or do we just open it up for the adventure type? ”There are also issues of hygiene, communication, standards as well as food safety and the Project Managment Unit is hopeful that at the end of the consultation they would have several idea and solutions to these pertinent matters.Dominica Vibes News encourages all in the North of the island to attend this consultation and lend thier support to this great project which has the potential to bring tremendous revenue to our island.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share 16 Views   no discussionslast_img read more
