St. Croix stands to gain a quality of life a notch above its current standards with a completed resort. The promised jobs and income generated will help many others with the spin-off spending. As long as the guidelines are followed by Golden Resorts the people of St. Croix will benefit from a world class venture this promises to be.
No, I do not live there but I have bought property to build on there. I cannot move there fast enough as I want to be in the middle of the hubbub of excitement. I am not a builder or contractor but a retired teacher who would like to teach again on St. Croix. I have taught in small town America and the inner city of Detroit. I love the people on St. Croix who are rich in traditions and have been so kind to me. I hope the Golden Resort pans out so all can benefit including the turtles!
