Town eyes city by the sea

PRELIMINARY designs are being drawn up for what Nadi's business community envisions to be a city by the sea.

Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry board member, architect John Grey is heading a committee overlooking this master plan and said such an establishment would also cater to the town's thriving tourism trade.

"We all know that Nadi has grown from the airport and the sugar industry, which was the soul of the economy then," Mr Grey said.

"But we also know that over the last 20 years, tourism has taken over but we are still fighting between the old and the new, so we need to create this division."

Speaking at the Nadi Town Council's stakeholders meeting on Monday, he said Nadi was continually beset by floods, cyclones and the lack of vision for a city.

The chamber has conducted a series of public consultations over the past eight months gathering views on the ambitious plan.

"Everyone agrees that we need to take Nadi from where it is to the new city, a city that will focus on what Nadi is all about — the gateway to Fiji and the South Pacific."
