Petite Savanne residents urged be patient with the government, as it sorts out resettlement logistics
Petite Savanne residents are being asked to continue to be patient with the government.
That community was declared a special disaster area by Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, following the passage of TS Erika in August 2015.
About 823 residents were evacuated from Petite Savanne after the storm and presently some are being housed at guest houses while others reside with family members.
It was also revealed that residents will be relocated to the Bellevue Chopin area, and to date government has engaged an international firm to prepare a settlement plan for Petite Savanne residents.
Member of Parliament for the Petite Savanne constituency, Dr Kenneth Darroux, is appealing to residents of that community to continue to be patient.
Dr Darroux says government has already done a lot to assist displaced residents.
