Thirty eight families were allocated with residential units last week in the Petite Savanne Resettlement in Bellevue Chopin.
These 38 families consisted of 176 persons in all and with family sizes of an average of 5 to 6 persons.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Housing, Lands and Water Lucien Blackmoore said the handing over of the housing units was the first phase of families moving into the new development.
The residential units handed over were four and three bedroom type buildings.
Mr. Blackmoore said that more residential units will be handed over in the upcoming year to more families.
Mr. Blackmoore said that Prime Minister of Dominica Roosevelt Skerrit made an announcement that a street in the new settlement would be named after Dr. Kenneth Darroux the representative of Petite Savanne.
