Tropical Storm Erika of August 2015 was the deadliest natural disaster in Dominica since Hurricane David in 1979. Several islands experienced heavy rainfall during its passage especially in Dominica. Thousands of people were displaced and hundreds of homes were left uninhabitable and needed to be built and repaired, including relocation of all Petite Savanne’s residents. The destruction of Petite Savanne forced the evacuation of 823 people. The village was later deemed uninhabitable and a new town is needed to be built elsewhere. Since the destruction of Petite Savanne, the Government of Dominica has provided accommodation and other forms of support to its residents.
Since September 2015, Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE) has been working closely with the Government of Dominica in order to assist Petite Savanne residents to recover and to rebuild beyond Erika with the vision of developing and building integrated communities including Commercial Centers, Farmers Market and Cemetery.
Montreal Management Consultants Development is developing the total number of structures.
- 340 Residential Units
- 28 Commercial Complex
The Commercial Complex will be used as a day care and early childhood education center, sports and recreation, shops and boutiques.
This is the first project anywhere in the Caribbean that is designed to benefit residents directly and substantially by means of a Citizenship By Investment program. MMCE is proud and delighted to be part of this initiative.
MMCE is attempting to contribute to the well being of Dominica and give back to the country where MMCE operates business.
The Zone C1, Zone C2 and Commercial Complex are expected to be completed on December 31, 2017 and the rest of the project will be completed in Summer 2018.
