The Plan

How will it be done?

The Over-the-Hill Community Development Partnership Initiative is a true partnership to develop and revitalize the area. This involves Government, private businesses, University of The Bahamas, community groups and Over-the-Hill residents working together.

How long will it take?

The project has three phases:

  • Phase 1: Assessment & Clean Up (November 2017 to April 2018)
  • Phase 2: Launch of Over-the-Hill Rejuvenation Project (May 2018 to April 2019)
  • Phase 3: Launch of Longer Term Planning Projects (May 2019)

What will I see?

During Phase 1:

  • Promote and strengthen e-learning within preschools (use of tablets to help teaching)
  • Improve solid waste management (community clean-up, removal of derelict vehicles and pest control)
  • Improve availability of water (sewerage pilot, improve standpipes, pilot smart metering of water)
  • Improve management and maintenance of public parks (improve park safety/include installing public restrooms at parks)
  • Develop a white paper on tax incentives for the Over-the-Hill community
  • Strengthening community support programs (eg. a single app and website with a schedule of all community events)
