The Corozal Town Council formally received a development proposal for the Old Market Restaurant and Tourism Center in Corozal Town. The proposed development is for the expansion and transformation of the old and dilapidated Fisherman’s Pier into what could become Corozal’s next major tourism landmark. Love News spoke with the Mayor of Corozal Town, Rigoberto Vellos, who explained how this will be beneficial for the economic development of Corozal.
Vellos said the proposal will undergo the scrutiny of all relevant Government agencies and the residents of Corozal Town. He also stated that while the council welcomes this type of investment to develop the tourism capacities of the town, it still aims to maintain a balance to protect and conserve the environment.
