Burj Hammoud Mayor Mardig Boghossian said Tuesday that while he was weary of the ongoing land reclamation project on the municipality's coast, he was confident that it would ultimately serve the interests of local residents.Boghossian said that while he could not comment on whether the funds had been received, there were plans in store to use them for the development of Burj Hammoud.Boghossian said that the public land would also be under the authority of Burj Hammoud municipality and that he had not yet received plans for the plant. Boghossian added that he envisaged a well-maintained and long-term project, rather than a "hit-and-run project". The mayor also said he was strongly against talk of plans to make a "central sewage plant" on the land, which would process the waste of up to 1.4 million people. Boghossian said he would accept a maximum capacity of 600,000 to 650,000 people.
