BMP GAS STATION

PUP outraged over construction of gas station

The Belmopan City Council is reportedly constructing a gas station in front of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Primary School (OLOG). The People’s United Party has issued a press release expressing their outrage about this situation.

The Belmopan City Council is reportedly constructing a gas station in front of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Primary School (OLOG). The People’s United Party has issued a press release expressing their outrage about this situation. They claim this is a, quote, “secret agreement and sale of prime property…with full knowledge and consent of Mayor Khalid Belisle and his Council.” End quote. Mayor Belisle has reportedly approved the construction to a man named Ernesto Franco. The gas station is in the middle of Belmopan, and the PUP refers to the four prime parcels of land as a designated green area and buffer. Additionally, the area is heavily trafficked by children due to the proximity of the school. The press release makes mention of a student of OLOG who was killed some months ago while she was crossing the boulevard. It also asks why the sale of the parcel, allegedly in 2018, was kept a secret for so long. The PUP posed a number of questions to the Mayor, about his decision to place the gas station in a residential area and about the details of the sale. They call on the Mayor to explain his decision and, on the residents, to stand up against the construction of the gas station.
