Millennium Heights Owners united for Justice

Published

on

Raw comments were coming from home owners in Millennium Heights on Saturday when some gathered to tell the media how they feel ripped off by Priton Development and forsaken by the PNP Government, who had endorsed the developers as reputable. 
 
Charges of shoddy construction leading to a wide range of issues including leaky roofs, cracked walls, exploding floor tiles, broken appliances, cheap fixtures, contaminating mold and even dangerous sink holes were leveled at the company, called unscrupulous, greedy and unconcerned. 
 
Residents say they are extending an olive branch for a serious sit down to right the wrongs and if that does not happen, they will collectively file a law suit against Priton, Planning department and TCIG. 
 
Azzizi Parker, Millennium Heights Home Owner: “Less than six months after I came into my house this hole here fell in, just from some rain.  When they came in with this excavator they put that machine down as low as they could have gotten it.  So I now live on a property with five sink holes around me, three is in my yard and two is right off my boundary.”
 
Antoinette Stephenson, Millennium Heights Home Owner:  “It was like an earthquake, you could just hear the tiles go pop, pop, pop, pop.  When we looked we could just see the tiles going… it was very frightening.”
 
Azzizi Parker, Millennium Heights Home Owner:  “Other than that, you’ve got the tiles in the house popping up.  Priton Development changed cupboards in my house the first year I was here they had to come in and change a full fleet of cupboards in my house; the fridge don’t work, the fridge has been going down almost two years now.  It is finally on its way out.”
 
Priton, even after complaints in the first phase of the affordable homes programme of the Mike Misick PNP Government was allowed to build phase two, and is now being permitted to profit again in a higher end development in Long Bay.

#USVI, December 1, 2022 – Recent reports of people taking large amounts of sand from beaches illegally have been on the increase in the US Virgin Islands.  The Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) is urging citizens to refrain from doing this.

The DPNR announced that those found guilty could be charged a fine of $10,000 daily.

While they are unaware of what the illegally mined sand is being used for, the DPNR said it cannot be used for construction.

“In seawater, chloride is present, causing corrosion of steel and iron, which ultimately leads to reducing carrying capacity, so that the structure built using this may not be sustainable,” the DPNR said.

December 1, 2022 – Cyber Monday isn’t just for electronics!  Potential vacationers broke a Carnival Cruises Cyber Monday record for bookings, purchasing 50 per cent  more tickets than 2019’s pre-pandemic shopping day.

The cruise line announced the record bookings on Tuesday, November 29th.

The company cited a successful launch campaign of the new Carnival Celebration which visited Grand Turk recently and the three additional ships joining the fleet over the next 18 months, as major ticket pushers.

“The Cyber Monday sale activity showed consumer demand across the fleet, and we were particularly pleased with the booking activity for Carnival Venezia’s new year-round service from New York, and our new extended six-month program for Carnival Magic out of Norfolk,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“Our very successful naming ceremony for Carnival Celebration on November 20 and all the media coverage it generated clearly kept Carnival top of mind as vacationers got started on their holiday shopping yesterday.”

They say the pent-up demand for cruising has manifested in multiple ways in 2022, as Carnival was the first major cruise line to have its entire fleet back in operation and it now has more rooms than it was sailing in 2019.
