Develop "hidden" cultural sites
By Raquel C. Bagnol - email@example.com - Variety News Staff
Mayor JP San Nicolas said his office will be focusing on discovering and developing more archeological and historical sites that can be opened to the public in the coming months.
San Nicolas said having new sites and strengthening beautification programs will make Tinian more enticing and more beautiful.
“Tinian’s strong points are our cultural sites like the Latte Stones, and historical sites that have to do with the war. There are many archeological sites that we still have to develop. We have ancient Chamorro villages dating back thousands of years, as well as more recent World War II historical sites.”
San Nicolas said they are now figuring out how they can partner with developers and businesses to make Tinian even more attractive.
Tinian, he added, has beautiful beaches but sometimes trash washes up and this has become a problem.
To resolve this issue, San Nicolas said they will be working on a beautification and revitalization project to clean up the beach areas.
“I am talking to the business community and asking companies to start adopting beaches so they can maintain them. We will do our part here in the mayor’s office and we will also work with the Marianas Visitors Authority and the Division of Parks and Recreation to help keep Tinian clean.”
He added, “These are works in progress, and we plan to implement them this year, as soon as we can.”
San Nicolas said Tinian is becoming a prime destination for bikers so they may have to open new pathways and jungle trails.
“We want to share what Tinian has to offer. This is the gem of the Pacific and very accessible. We have the casino industry and we have great potential with more investors coming in. We have a lot to offer, and most of all we have a leadership that shares the idea of revitalizing Tinian’s economy and tourism industry.”
