In a move aimed at ensuring that projects are completed on time and within budget, Cabinet is giving its support to the standardization of architecture at all community centers across the country.
Community Development Minister, Winston Gypsy Peters, on Thursday told reporters that the estimated cost of constructing a community centre, using the standardized design, works out to twelve million dollars.
He said this includes an estimated cost of eight million dollars for the building, comprising about 11,000 square feet.
He said the newly constructed community centre will be better outfitted to properly accommodate citizens in emergency situations.
Minister Peters said cabinet has also agreed to spend 18 million dollars to finish community centers at Carapo, Mt Lambert, Cleverhill and two others that are at various stages of completion.
