Neighborhood Associations angered over construction in Puerto Vallarta

A meeting with neighbors and businesses that make up the Neighborhood Association of Emiliano Zapata and Zona Romantica made clear to the city that they did not agree with the construction of condominium buildings in the area.

Mr. Benny Ibarra, member of the association, was very clear in saying that they do not agree the decision to have authorized the construction of large buildings that is affecting the people and businesses living in the colonies. He reiterated it is evident that the size of the buildings will generate problems with services and the collapse of the water structure and even sustainable life of all the people who live in that area.

He added that “from my point of view it is one of the big mistakes of this municipal administration in turn because they significantly affected the economic dynamics of the area.”

Roberto González recalled that there are 16 permits that do not meet the legal standards for construction in the area, but they were already issued construction licenses in an area where they should not be.

It should be noted that Roberto González, mayoral candidate, was invited by the Neighborhood Association of Colonia Emiliano Zapata and the Zona Romantica to a talk on Friday, May 4, to address issues of importance to the colony.

After the meeting, Roberto González reflected the association’s anger for not being taken into account in decisions that affect their colonies and their patrimony, for which, he assured, that this is an act of corruption that the government currently made when agreeing to grant construction permits. But the most serious thing is that adjustments were made to the urban planning regulations, in order to build these buildings, he said.

Roberto González said that if he reaches the municipal presidency, he will work on an emerging plan to adapt the infrastructure as soon as possible to supply the large number condos in the area. He said he will work with the State and Federal Government because the problem requires it to prevent this from impacting the development of economic dynamics and surplus value.

Finally, Roberto González stressed that this type of government should not return to the municipality government, since they are hurting the patrimony of the citizens, but they are also getting rich in this type of actions that do not benefit Puerto Vallarta at all.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
