Merida Yucatan; October 13, 2021 (ACOM) .- Mobility, economic reactivation as well as the recovery of spaces for cultural activities that have been lost due to the pandemic, are the priorities of the Historic Center Board.

He explained that, even when there are many criticisms of bicycle lanes, citizens must learn to live and improve their mobility conditions and change habits and conditions in order to improve journeys, times and conditions towards modernity that is also a requirement of the society in general.
“We have to learn to move in a different way, therefore, attending to the safety conditions in transport, accompanying the authorities in these new demands of the population will serve to build an agenda in which participate the voices of professionals and businessmen, but also the citizens who live in Downtown Mérida ”, he pointed out.
He stated that it is a priority to propose stricter measures, generate greater co-responsibility and commitments so that citizens return to the Historic Center of Mérida.
One of the important tasks will also be the ordering of the sidewalks and street areas without obstructing the public spaces.

He also requested attention to buildings that are the heritage of the city and that many are private property.
“It is clear that, after 19 months of the pandemic, many of these buildings have not received maintenance and are at risk, last year there was record rainfall and it is necessary to address these problems in the downtown area”, he stressed.
