Ozark is probably one of my favorite TV Shows for one reason, there’s a part of it that remind the potentials of CHADA in Cap-Haitien, I might have you lost a little bit, but let me explain. In one of the episodes of Ozark, there was this business in front of the water, which one was struggling to attract new customers, and the area was quite dead because of lack of activities. A small town inhabited by mostly old folks. But everything changes in the area after Marty invests in the business and turn the little town into something beautiful to a younger crowd.
CHADA one and two are probably one of the poorest section in Cap-Haitien, the sea divides the area into two small sections Chada and “Nan Banann.” Evey time I’m passing by, where people see poverty, I see a dusty Gold that can transform the city economy. The city of Cap-Haitien was built for approximately 10,000 people; the town is now the home for over 300,000 with the same old infrastructure. Back then we ride horses, now we have cars, the transportation system apparently needs to be innovated, and new road and routes need to be built. What do I mean by route?
I have recently traveled to Amsterdam, where I have learned about the river and the sea transportation inside a small city, I believe the city has the potential to develop the same infrastructure. Allow people to get access to the downtown by Boat. I know it sounds easy, but a move like this will require new investments, new structure, and most importantly new laws to make it happen.
Nearly 50.000 people live in these areas, moving them might be difficult. However, building the community with them will have an enormous impact on the economy of the city. The need to develop new businesses, new schools, creating new Jobs, new hotels is crucial, also as easy access to them; This will significantly contribute to the success of developing the area. Who knows it might be the next spot for young professionals and business to have a great time riding their boats with friends and Family member. All I see is this gold that needs to be polished, and with new visions, new talents, and a well-elaborated plan, it is possible.
