OVERLOOK TO BE OVERHAULED

The popular overlook on Valdemar A. Hill Drive, also known as Skyline Drive, is going to get an overhaul that will make it more handicapped-accessible and friendlier to everyone in the community, according to a release from the Tourism Department.
Acting Tourism Commissioner Monique Sibilly-Hodge said the renovations will take about nine months "provided there are no weather related delays."
The release Thursday didn't specify what exactly was going to be done to the area to "afford tourists and residents alike an atmosphere conducive to enjoying" the spot — only that the Public Works Department is spearheading the project.
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 28.
