After the floods in different parts of Mérida, caused by the tropical storms and hurricanes that affected Yucatecan territory this year, the Municipality’s Construction Regulations will make adjustments, in order to prevent these floods from occurring again in the future.
The first modification meetings began on Thursday, November 5th, and they were attended by specialists, academics, and members of the civil society.

The session of the Urban Development Commission was held on Thursday, November 5th, where the analysis for the adjustments necessary from the hydrology and hydraulics point of view was presented to the Regulation Committee, in order to analyze the strategies that they should be implemented in the short, medium and long term.
