Mayor Vila announces historic investment of one billion pesos in 2017-2018 for public works and social development…
MERIDA — Merida’s mayor, Mauricio Vila Dosal, announced for this year a historic investment of $1 billion pesos ($54 million USD) for infrastructure and social development, an unprecedented amount that will reduce the inequality gap and improve the well-being of citizens. The projects will be made with resources that the City Council has already budgeted and no loans will be sought, he remarked.
He pointed out that Merida, which today is considered the city with the best quality of life in Mexico, faces challenges in terms of economic, social and environmental sustainability due to its exponential growth of the last 25 years.
“In the south of Merida alone will be invested between 40% and 45% of the budget in infrastructure and social development, which seeks to reduce the differences in the South and North, but we will also work in other areas of the city,” he explained.
He said we can’t continue having the strong differences between North Merida and South Merida, so that we are creating better opportunities for the people there so that its inhabitants can improve their standard of living.
From the total of $1 billion pesos, $12 million will be designated to give integral maintenance to the Municipal Palace and the Olimpo Cultural Center, and another $9 million will be used to rescue 82 facades of historic buildings in the area that goes from La Plaza Grande to Santa Lucia Park.
To make public spaces safer, they will provide better lighting to the 600 parks of the municipality with an investment of $12 million pesos, an action that also includes the Historic Center and the oldest part of Paseo de Montejo, known as “El Remate”.
For the weekly events Merida en Domingo and Mexican Night will be invested $2 million pesos, to renew their image with simple and practical spaces. In addition tents will be installed, to protect from the sun and rain, with a homogeneous image.
