They gave a presentation to the San Nicolas Business Association, Mr. Nicolas Gordon of the Nicolas Store, Mr. Tito Bolivar of the Art Fair, and a Department of Public Works DOW representative.
After several brainstorming sessions with professionals and stakeholders, architect Raffy Kock drew up a concept for the center of San Nicolas. The emphasis is on ensuring that San Nicolas maintains its element and influence that makes it so unique while taking advantage of its natural support, such as the ocean, to enhance the whole area.
What stood out during the many rounds of consultation with stakeholders was that they all wanted the revitalization to lead to an investment climate for San Nicolas while at the same time improving the quality of life of residents. The design encompasses an area with all elements needed to live, recreate, and undertake work in a safe and beautiful environment and with access to various facilities and activities around.
Phase 1 of the San Nicolas revitalization includes family recreation areas and outdoor sports facilities.
“San Nicolas has many resources and opportunities to offer, many options, and many ideas on the table.
These are ideas to be considered with stakeholders and experts to define a model with the greatest possible socio-economic benefits for San Nicolas”, the minister stated.
