Beautification & Historic Preservation

  • Main Street Improvements
  • Expanded Economic
  • Enterprise Zones
  • Historic Preservation

Charlotte Amalie is a living museum with a rich and colorful history. Fort Christian, Blackbeard’s Hill, Emancipation Park, The Dutch Reform Church, The Lutheran Church, St. Thomas Synagogue, All Saints Cathedral and all of the converted warehouses that extend from the Waterfront to Main Street are incredible examples of our unique Virgin Islands cultural heritage. Our step streets, narrow winding lanes and interior courtyards are real and must be preserved and restored. New sidewalks, cobblestone pavers, historic lanterns, benches and palm trees are planned and will be implemented as soon as the Department of Public Works and WAPA have completed the necessary underground work. The private sector will assist in beautification efforts throughtout Charlotte Amalie by investing in capital improvements on properties throughout the expanded economic enterprise zone.

Benefits: The beautification of Charlotte Amalie will have an enormous positive impact on residents, businesses and visitors. It will dramatically improve our tourist product, stimulate the local economy, build pride in our community and make a better place to live, work and enjoy our island.
