Welcome to our Belize Eco Village Bulletin 20 update. We are eager to connect with eco-friendly people who share our values, virtues, and visions. After being inspired and interested in our BEV project for a healthy lifestyle and investment please contact us.
My most recent trip to Belize was Feb 25 to March 3 and we were busy with our Belize eco-village contractor checklist. We contracted to finish the water lines and pumps, delivered gifts to the caretaker family, hired a driver, tractor and bush hog to mow, and showed our progress to some visitors. Next trip I will begin sourcing some furniture.
A special thanks to Linda Kimble and Sean Anderson for visiting the project and seeing the two Stabilized Compressed Earth Block houses.
Developer and Investor Ready
After buying the 149 acre BEV property in February 2015 we are “shovel ready” for investor capital and collaboration. We completed the land search, acquisition, and title (phase 1). We moved forward with the electricity, two houses with septic systems, and water well completed (phase 2). The Beltraide Executive Investment Summary (EIS) has not provided enough interest so we engaged Mark Stratman (In The Tropics) to help attract an experienced developer, hospitality manager and investor (phase 3). It is time to find a developer dream team to lead us to the next phase: Land Plan, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and put a management team in place (phase 4). We are ready to attract an eco-friendly developer and joint venture partner so if you know someone now is a great time to introduce us.
The adjoining 486-acre property to the south was purchased in Feb 2016 and the title is still pending due to Belize Lands and Surveys Department delays. When we have the title we believe an investor will step in with the vision, land plan, and timeline. The combined 640-acre project and a drone video promotion are listed on the Beltraide Executive Investment Summary, so please review and share it.
SCEB Homes Good… Dome Homes Great
Our first two Stabilized Compressed Earth Block (SCEB) homes are completed and continue to wow visitors. We are installing the water lines and submersible pump to the house pressure pump and tank. Next, our plan is to build two EcoShell 1 dome homes and we have contracted with an architect to start the blueprints to submit to the Central Building Authority for approval. We are hoping for a May start date to begin the two dome homes. We have contracted for road material to improve our internal roads to the two houses. We are still investigating the feasibility to dig two ponds to raise ducks and tilapia.
The goal of the Morningstar NEWS is to condense hours of research down to two minutes of education, information, and inspiration for a healthy lifestyle and mindset. We believe EcoShell 1 domes will provide an even more affordable, healthy and sustainable home at a better price. Remember we appreciate your ideas to help attract interested investors. Who do you know that might be a great team resource?
