Lovell details development plans to make City East constituency a model community

Harold Lovell, Political Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP) and its Candidate for St. John’s City East, is outlining some of his plans to make the constituency a model community for Antigua and Barbuda.

Over the Christmas holidays, Lovell says, he met with a number of constituents, and was able to listen to their concerns while he outlined the Party’s plans.

He says the community is well positioned for certain developments to take place.  Included in these is a street-naming programme, which he had already embarked upon before the UPP lost the 2014 elections.

Youth development and creating opportunities for young people are other issues topping Lovell’s agenda, while the expansion of the community’s housing stock is another concern he plans to address.

Lovell says he will also focus  on infrastructural development and the upgrade of sporting facilities in the area.

The City East constituency comprises Upper Fort Road, Lower Gambles, Crown Gardens, Gambles Terrace, Bishopgate Street, Mongo Town, North Street, Newgate Street and St. John’s Street.
