The Development Bank Board of Directors in American Samoa has ambitious plans to turn the site of the old Rainmaker hotel into a tourist village similar to Hawaii's Polynesian Cultural Center but on a much smaller scale.

The Chairman of the Board Senator, Nua Saoluaga, says the board is anxious to turn the eyesore stuck right in the middle of the bay area into a hub of tourist related activities.

He says the boards plans will await the demolition of the hotel.

The Development Bank administers the 80 percent shareholding of the American Samoa Government in the American Samoa development Corporation which owned the Rainmaker Hotel.
