You're ignoring what's physically there because you're sad. You honestly can't prefer filthy open sewers on a public beach over an engineered system?
So what do you suggest, don't make things better at the beach area because the water supply system needs work? That makes sense to you?

And other then approving a couple of food plazas, the gov't has nothing to do with it. It's privately owned (for the gazillionth time).
Go knock on their front door and tell them what you want done on their property.

So, this will be the only place that properly treats the water supply?

I wish the whole island took care of the water supply and the sewage system but I have yet to see it done properly on the NC. Like I said, I will believe it when I see it....the track record is extremely poor. Have you been involved in the clean up of Rio Sosua? I have. You would be surprised with what goes into that river...dumping straight into the bay. The problems are much larger than a bit of crap going on behind the shacks.

My favorite Dominican lunch location in Sosua. La Norteno Comedor / Bar. just a 9 iron east on PC from where you live. Also you can not miss the BBQ unit on the sidewalk, along with seating at the bar on the right side with some nice local service.
This is what you are talking about!

The Ribs, yummy yummy!!!

See how dirty and disgusting that grill is? Every early morning when I walk by, that bbq grill is just as dirty. Meaning that rats and cockroaches are on there all night eating away. I stopped eating there a long time ago.
Fire kills everything, same here in the US.
Just Google it was on the news last week bunch of rats in a fast food place here in NC, and that is one of the most prestigious fast food chain in America.

As long as they're not charging for the extra protein I'm okay with it.

a little extra protein never hurts. They say every time you eat a piece of bread you are consuming a touch of "byproducts" yum yum,

That doesn't make it ok. I won't be eating at either place. You clean at night, and again before cooking.

And weren't they shut down after that video went public?

How the red light district of sosua was created :
In 2013 a famous Dominican comedian named cheddy Garcia decided with a group of friends to stay in ocean club. The beach front condo hotel in sosua rents for $400 to $800 per night per room. this location is home to two restaurants a wine cellar and a cigar lounge and valet parking
To get there however one must pass Pedro clisante and surrounding area. Cheddy was mortified. She published a scathing letter to the President of the Country Danilo Medina. she also published videos building awareness in the country and categorizing the age differences as pedophilia and dramatizing the prostitution. Most Dominican viewers had no knowledge of an open air sex market in their country
The president in an attempt to save face acknowledged that prostitution in the country is legal however pandering is illegal. His remedy was to give all bars one year to move to the playa Chiquita area and instituting a closing mandate of 1:am
The casino in playa Chiquita was exempt from the 1:am curfew. The old high caribe restaurant ,anvi resort and a luxury sports bar were created and renovated in anticipation of the relocation.
These efforts failed however as the population of tourist who would be customers began to experience a precipitous decline leaving only those who prefer to remain near rumba and their hotel.
Additionally there were shifts in the customer base with an increasing number of customers electing to make Colombia their new Latin American playground.
The red light district remains vacant
It’s worth noting playa Chiquita is the best neighborhood in sosua with single ,family homes , luxury apartments and ocean front homes and condos So the residents are thrilled
The artists objections were not to the act but rather to the age and living conditions of the participants. She did not believe the laws were allowed or written in contemplation of school aged girls participating

And where's Cheddy now? She's not one of my favorites.

The Facebook posting seems fairly accurate as far as I remember, except that it says that most Dominicans didn't know about Sosua's reputation. Cheddy's claim at the time about rampant pedophilia was a wild exaggeration.

True on both counts. I don't think you can find a Dominican who doesn't know about Sosua.

Do you think her hyperbole hastened the call to action in Santo Domingo regarding the attempts to clean up Sosua?

Sosua is a thriving pay for play community. When people think about Sosua they don't think about restaurants, shopping and the beach. They think about single gentleman seeking chicas. Discussions about "cleaning up" Sosua have been going on for a good 15 years.

Oh well. perhaps eventually. Will Santo Domingo keep trying until they "get it right" regarding the delousing of Sosua?

If you just rely on FB, it would appear Sosua has been abandoned for cheaper and cleaner Colombia.
