October 26, 1998 - A draft bill to provide for the establishment of a corporation to promote the economic, social and industrial development of Vieux Fort is now available for public comment. That=s the word from Prime Minister and Parliamentary Representative for Vieux Fort South, Dr. the Honourable Kenny D. Anthony.

The draft bill makes provision for the establishment of a Vieux Fort Development Corporation, which will have as its primary function, the development of Vieux Fort through land development, housing projects and industrial enterprises conducive to the economic and social welfare of the residents of Vieux Fort.

Once enacted, the bill will divest the National Development Corporation (NDC) and the Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUDC) of their powers and functions with respect to the development of the Southern Region. As well, all property, rights, duties and liabilities of the NDC and HUDC will be transferred to the new corporation. However, the bill will preserve the status of the NDC and the HUDC as facilitators to the Vieux Development Corporation.

The Prime Minister says the bill is a fulfillment of a promise to the people of Vieux Fort and persons interested in obtaining a copy of the draft bill can do so from the Vieux Fort South Constituency Office as of Wednesday. Comments on the proposed legislation, Dr. Anthony adds, may be forwarded to the Attorney General or the Parliamentary Representative.
