The Cayman Islands Music Association’s president Jean-Eric Smith says not having a central HQ to call home is causing turmoil in the association.
In 2009 the then Minister of Education Rolston Anglin donated a temporary modular building to the association, which was to be used as the group’s main office.
Nearly six years have pasted since the donation and now the building is overgrown with plants and small trees, as it sits on a private lot in West Bay. Residents in the area have complained and called the building an eye sore, and say they want it gone for good.
Mr Smith says so far not having a permanent home has caused division within the group. While on Cayman 27 News Today, Mr Smith said, “There really isn’t any central hub, and that’s part of the reason why the membership is actually so disenfranchised and so scattered, so to speak.”
He says instead of dumping the building they will see if they can donate it to another group.
