Kaieteur News – We are fooling ourselves if we expect Guyana will ever come close to being a mirror image of Dubai, or the go-to destination in the Caribbean. That will never happen if we are unable to evolve. The government gets a plus in the development schemes, but clearly, there is some shortsightedness to these schemes. The fact that we don’t seem to have Landscape Architects involved in developing these housing schemes is clearly obvious and is another issue altogether. The common direction to getting around in a place like Providence is to give standard directions that sound like this: “Turn left at Massey, at the corner, take a right, then when you come to the first corner, take the second left.” Impressively so, all these directions are on unpaved side roads, 80% of the time. Residents should be allowed to not only name the streets in their neighbourhood, but also contribute collectively towards placing standard road signs as well. All this will take considerably less time to get done, than waiting for government officials in the lands department, presumably; to come around to naming the streets, which should be one of the criteria for developing schemes. The ministry responsible for street names can easily put together a one-page process for getting this issue on the fast track, by the public. Let’s face it: otherwise, the country will be developing with no street names. Furthermore, businesses will easily be able to upload their location with a proper street address so that Google Maps has them for the nation and world to see and people to conveniently find, if that is the case. We talk of foreign investors wanting to come to Guyana, primarily to set up business outside of the main metropolis area, but what will be the proper address? Or isn’t it relevant, as is found elsewhere?
