Portmore is a large coastal city in southern Jamaica in Saint Catherine, and a dormitory town for the neighbouring cities of Kingston and Spanish Town.GeographyPortmore is built on a generally flat plain facing the Kingston Harbour with an intricate canal system which prevents flooding. Much of the land is reclaimed swamp. The Port Henderson hill, apart from the Salt pond hill is visible from neighbouring parishes and was a possible Arawak grave site. Because the Arawak buried their dead in caverns, which Port Henderson hill is riddled with. The most famous cave is named "Twin Sisters"HistoryPortmore began as a large area for schematic residential development in the late 1960s, as the West Indies Home Contractors organization built thousands of prototype housing units in an effort to alleviate the over-population of Kingston; the first was called Independence City. It has since grown into a suburban city to Kingston; its large population travels into Kingston daily for work, schooling, and many other essential services via the Portmore toll road.Portmore was granted Municipality status in 2003 and has its own city council and mayor, following the British-based model of Jamaican local government. It now houses approximately 10% of the population of the Kingston Corporate Area.Currently Portmore has an acting mayor since the death of Mayor George Lee in late September 2013.Portmore has affiliations with music artist Vybz Kartel, Mad Cobra, Baby Wayne, Masicka, Macka Diamond and Spice and many soundsystems such as "Flavor Unit" and "Areacode 876"
