Eighteen new homeowners in the Pinecrest Subdivision received the keys to their brand new homes from the Minister of Transport and Housing, the Hon. Jobeth Coleby-Davis. The Prime Minister was also on hand for the happy occasion.

Davis told those in attendance, “eighteen more individuals and families who tonight can rest their heads in the peace and comfort of their own home. This is dignity.”

He went further saying, “this is a strong testament to the focus and diligence of the Minister of Transport and Housing and her team. The Permanent Secretary, the Under Secretary, the Chief Housing Officer, and all the public housing officers who work assiduously to help Bahamians realize their dreams of home ownership. To date the working arrangements between the central government, a quasi government agency, a private sector agency and other stakeholders who have lent their full strength and attention to this project has proved to be fruitful and rewarding.”

Forty homes have been occupied in the Pinecrest Subdivision to date. The government also has projects underway in the Carmichael Road area of New Providence and on the island of Abaco and other family islands.
