Belize City, Belize (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
Far from a typical, manicured resort-style development, a new community in Belize, called Cyan Belize, is being created for a handful of neighbors to enjoy and build eco-friendly waterfront homes within a secure, gated environment.
The project, more than just a place to live and commune with nature, is also focused on the protection of the Antillean Manatee, of which less than 1000 remain. In order to make a small impact, Cyan Belize, a 200-acre-plus peninsula, is divided into 15 large estates ranging in size from 7.5 acres to 33 acres. The estates cannot be re-subdivided.
“The idea behind Cyan Belize was to create a place that isn’t over-developed — this is the place that develops you,” says Carl Churan, the envisioner for the project. “We ask that homeowners build environmentally friendly homes that leave the smallest footprints possible.”
Cyan Belize is located 64 miles south of Belize International Airport by road and 30 miles by boat. The airport has direct flights available to several American cities via major airlines. The community rests on the edge of a manatee preserve, about 4 miles from the Caribbean coast by boat using Manatee Bar River. It is 20 miles from Cyan Belize to the barrier reef, the second largest of its kind in the world and a major scuba diving destination.
Land owners at Cyan Belize are required to join the Cyan Belize Association and abide by the association's regulations, which stress environmental stewardship. The association is being formed for the purpose of holding the value of the properties, ensuring safety and security for all, maintaining and improving the infrastructure of the peninsula and upholding compliance of the homestead guidelines.
“We look forward to doing whatever we can with our homeowners to celebrate and protect this place as well as those neighbors who were here first — manatees, jaguars, toucans and other wildlife,” says Churan. “We’re not interested in re-creating Scottsdale, Miami or Palm Beach at Cyan Belize. We’re embracing Belizean culture, ecology and values, and we want to attract those who are interested in doing the same.”
