Cayman in brief

Savannah gully meetings

The Ministry of Communications Works and Infrastructure, National Roads Authority staff, government officials and other key persons will host meetings to gather community input into the flooding concerns in the Savannah Gully area.

The meetings will be held 30 and 31 May at Savannah Primary School, from 6-8pm.

The National Roads Authority and their consultants, Orth-Rodgers & Associates, will be asking participants for their first-hand knowledge of the flooding in their neighbourhoods. Meeting participants will be asked to draw the extent of the flooding on project maps. They will also be asked to participate in a survey to obtain information on the history of flooding (extent, depth, and duration) in their areas.

Information gathered at the public meetings will be used in the development of performance measures that will assist the NRA and its consultants in developing both short and long term solutions to the problems.
