The city has established the framework of the new board and trustee commission to oversee Puerto Vallarta’s historic center and tourist strip.
The established group will be representatives of the people and businesses in the city center, along with organizations around the Bay of Banderas with an interest in responsible growth of the tourist areas of the city. The board will allow the people of Puerto Vallarta to play a larger role in civil society within the government.
The board includes one representative from local universities and business associations, including Canirac, Association of Entrepreneurs, College of Civil Engineers, Association of Architects, Hotel Association of Puerto Vallarta, Timeshare Developers Association, Federation of Workers Madre Occidental Mountains, Universidad del Valle de Atemajac, and Centro Universitario de la Costa.
Joining the board will be three chosen citizens of Puerto Vallarta that are determined by the board to have moral standings and an understanding of the social and cultural importance of our area. Also, two members of the Emiliano Zapata Neighborhood Association will join the board.
The city council presidents of the tourism commission, regulations, ecology, urban development, and the government secretary will also contribute to the new board.
Members are limited to serving two years on the board.
