Why Did Belmopan CitCo Give Away Land Next to Community School?

Residents of Las Flores, a subdivision of Belmopan, are demanding answers about a recent transfer of land to a resident of Belmopan by the Belmopan City Council. One Amy Anabella Chen of a Hummingbird Highway address sought transfer of Block twenty, parcel number 8713 in February and the transaction was completed a week ago for fifty thousand dollars. News Five has obtained documents which show the transfer. An accompanying map shows that the parcel is located right next to Saint Michael R.C. Pre-School and Primary School. Residents we spoke to say that the parcel was intended to be used for further expansion of the school. But a previous attempt by residents to secure the property was denied by the Council. Not much is known about Chen or her intentions with the property, but a community meeting has been planned for Saturday with members of the City Council and Mayor Khalid Belisle where the situation will be explained. We will keep following the story.
