NCL consultation attracts a large crowd

At this hour, the Environmental Impact Assessment into the Norwegian Cruise Lines project is taking place at the Independence High School Auditorium in the south. A News Five crew on the ground is reporting a massive turnout of those in support and those against the multimillion dollar tourism project. The project attracted controversy and strong opposition since it first came to light. NCL says it will invest fifty million dollars and create hundreds of jobs, but the residents of the area believe that the magnitude of the project is contrary to the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan which recommends small pocket tourism.  The issue of the head tax is also a major concern because it is felt that government is getting the raw end of the deal. We will have all details of consultations in Thursday’s newscast.
