Belize City Mayor says homes with historical value will be preserved
The Belize City Council is working with the Belize Tourism Board to rehabilitate old colonial-era homes across the city, according to Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner. The council intends to demolish a dilapidated wooden structure on Eve Street built in Belize’s colonial era. The council’s decision has raised the eyebrows of historians who say the home may be protected under heritage legislation due to its historic architectural design. Today, Mayor Wagner explained that while the home is beyond the point of repair, similar structures will be preserved for their historical value.
