This report prepared for the Autoridad de Carreteras y Transportacion (ACT) of Puerto Rico, focuses on identifying options for the economic development of the communities along the Martin Pena Channel, specifically the community of Israel-Bitumul. Our main recommendation to the ACT was a community-based housing maintenance business for the housing complex within Israel-Bitumul. This business will satisfy an immediate need within the community, and will also position the entire community for further economic development.
