The Cayman Islands Government this week announces its going forward with some major renovations for Cayman Brac’s sports facilities. The newest wave of improvements are part of projects costing the public purse around $550,000.
The current renovations to the Cayman Brac Playing Field include the construction of three additional changing rooms, a cistern and a parking area.
Locally based company Dixon Construction was picked to handle the work, which is expected to be done in June.
This is just the latest in a wave of renovations to the field. Already installed to date:
- FIFA-standard lighting
- FIFA-standard artifical turf
- Portable fencing
- Temporary bleachers
- Flag poles
Deputy Premier Hon. Moses Kirkconnell spearheads the renovations, pitching them as a boost to the island’s tourism product.
“These enhancements have opened up a myriad of opportunities for Cayman Brac,” Kirkconnell said in a statement. “Including the ability to host CONCACAF and other international tournaments in the future.”
Kirkconnell is the first elected member for Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
According to the Ministry, $550,000 were budgeted this fiscal year for sports facilities improvements for the Brac.
Future plans include the installation of an IAAF athletics track and an entry road to the facility.
