Last Thursday, Culture, Entertainment, Gender and Sport Minister Olivia Grange announced that Mammee Bay in St. Ann, Jamaica, has been designated an entertainment zone, paving the way for more entertainment activities in the area.
The move is expected to create economic opportunities for multiple stakeholders, as it will allow entertainment activities to take place without disturbing residents.
Mammee Bay is already home to various housing developments, hotels, petrol stations, and a business process outsourcing (BPO) company.
In addition to the entertainment zone declaration, China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) is set to construct over 700 housing solutions at Mammee Bay Estates, including the restoration of the historic Mammee Bay Great House.
The venture will cover 156.95 acres of the estate, providing significant economic development for the area.
At a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mammee Bay Waterwheel Preservation and Beautification Project, Minister Grange praised the waterwheel as a potential heritage tourism attraction with great economic potential.
She also commended Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett and the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo) for funding and promoting these attractions as part of the overall tourism product.
