DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING AND NATURAL RESOURCES, VIRGIN ISLANDS: DO NOT APPROVE!
We, the undersigned, being residents and or concerned individuals of St. John, Virgin Islands hereby petition DPNR (Department of Planning and Natural Resources) to DO NOT APPROVE development at 6A-1 Estate Hansen Bay and its surroundings for the proposed 28 unit East Bay Beach club on St. John. The rapid development throughout the small island of St. John has surpassed the rate at which our environment, infrastructure, and community can be sustained on a healthy and efficient basis. We are very concerned and not convinced that the members of East Bay Holding Company, LLC are concerned with keeping the integrity of our small Island at large but more concerned with enlarging their bank accounts. We value our Island and refuse to let these type developments happen, especially being that the developers are not investing anything back into our community to offset their impact, such as parks, parking, and or roadway improvement. St. John is unique amongst the other islands and its character is what brings people here. If that essential small town relaxed community feel is lost and replaced by yet another major development then everyone loses-visitors, business operators and residents. DO NOT APPROVE!
We’ve drafted this petition to strongly encourage all Virgin Island residents and or concerned individuals to sign the petition and join us in this effort to reasonably guide scalable growth to our community.
