Residents in downtown Kingstown are working hard to improve the outlook of the Rose Place community.

In an effort to revive community spirit and participation among residents, a community management team is putting plans in place to deal with matters affecting the area. {{more}}The team represents an umbrella body with representatives from sporting and cultural organizations.

Rose Place, one of three communities adopted by the United Nations’ Development Programme (UNDP), Poverty Alleviation Programme, is setting itself the task of changing the negative way in which the community is seen from outside.

So far, the management team has pointed out areas in which they will work to rebuild the consciousness of the people of the area. Plans are in place to develop a community and recreational park along with the establishment of a computer learning resource centre.

Other projects to come on stream will be “Block at Work” and the refurbishing of Nine Steps.

The committee is currently headed by Junior Cottle who is assisted by Colvert Browne, Clement Russel as secretary, and Verleen Lowee as his assistant. Tyrone Barrow is the public relations officer, while Anita Gibbs serves as treasurer. The committee members are Leroy Cummings and Stratford Edwards.
