Trailers get occupants

The first nine recipients of travel trailer homes get keys to their new abodes tomorrow.

The ceremony will be at 4pm at the Ed Bush Playing field in West Bay. The Leader of Government McKeeva Bush and Cayman Islands Recovery Operation representatives will also be in attendance.

All 28 travel trailers that arrived in Grand Cayman last week have already been allocated, as have an additional 12 trailers, which are slated to be here by weekend. These 40 trailers represent Phase One of the CIRO Temporary Housing Project

In addition to the West Bay location, other community trailer areas are the Dr. Hortor Memorial site, on Fairbanks Road, in George Town, a site off Cumber Avenue in Bodden Town near the Old Mission House, and a site in East End. So far four people have had trailers approved for their own sites in different districts.
