MERIDA – The change in land use of “La Plancha” rail yards and the transfer away of railroad operations open the opportunity to take advantage of the rail network that is in the area, park proponents note. So residents and other interested parties propose the creation of a tram that allows access to the future “Gran Parque La Plancha” from the different points of the city through which the rail lines pass, in addition to a bicycle route that accompanies the railways.
In the area surrounding ”La Plancha” there are several emblematic buildings, examples of neomaya and neocolonial architecture in Yucatan, such as the Rendón Peniche Sanatorium, currently occupied by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), as well as the railway station.
In one section there are 10 homes, owned by Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México, that can be sold. It should be noted that the Civil Association Gran Parque La Plancha A.C. has the objective to gather public opinion about the needs and proposals for the project, since the constitutive act gives it powers to determine the scope of its participation, as well as the legal norms that will legitimize its actions.
The area includes two blocks that are identified as La Plancha Sur and La Plancha Norte.
In the first are the old warehouses and facilities of the railway station, which currently houses the Higher School of Arts of Yucatan (ESAY), also the loading station and the railway yard, as well as a group of houses in the far north.
In La Plancha Norte there is a softball field, a private property, a maneuver yard, SCT facilities and the Museum of the Yucatan Railways.
According to sources from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), there are 138 commercial establishments in the area, without taking into account semi-fixed stalls that are placed in the mornings and evenings around the rail yards.
