Community Affairs minister Osbourne Bodden said marking and maintaining public beach access pathways will be a focus of this year’s National Community Enhancement (NiCE) programme.
Responding online to Cayman 27’s series of stories on unmarked, obstructed, overgrown and ill-maintained beach rights of way, Minister Bodden said these prescriptive pathways need to be clean and clearly marked on all three islands.
Registration for this year’s NiCE programme gets started in just a couple weeks.
752 people registered for last year’s 3-week iteration of community enhancements, which aims to get unemployed and under-employed Caymanians temporary seasonal work on a variety of community beautification projects. Last year, the programme came in around $30,000 under its $475,000 budget.
