Public Beach details revealed

The details of the enhanced Seven Mile Public Beach were explained during a meeting between the Government and Dart Realty Ltd. last Monday. 
Minister of Tourism Cline Glidden Jr. said on Wednesday, that the government had tentatively agreed to the plan, subject to the signing of a third amendment to the original National Roads Authority agreement. 
The beach enhancement will involve the closure of 615 feet of West Bay Road, and the southern part of the 4,290 feet of the road that will eventually be closed. 
The beach will extend east and incorporate three beach volleyball courts and a beach football/soccer pitch. A new restroom facility will be situated near those courts. 
Mr. Glidden said it is hoped the beach volleyball courts can be ready in time for the North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation tournament, being held in Cayman at the end of March. 
"From a sports tourism perspective, these courts can make some significant inroads into hosting beach volleyball and beach football events," he said, also pointing out, that some of these events get overseas television coverage, helping promote the Cayman Islands.
