CANCUN, MX. – The president of the Association of Hotels of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres, Jesús Almaguer Salazar, reiterated the rejection of this group to the current Urban Development Program (PDU), through a document addressed to the Federal Executive, Andrés Manuel López.
In the letter, the hotel leader said that they are making public their refusal to accept the imposition of a PDU approved by the previous council, in the last days of that government, due to the negative effects for the city.
“The authorization of this PDU would have very serious pernicious effects for our city as a tourist destination, which is the source of livelihood and life for all the inhabitants of Cancun,” he refers to him verbatim.
He also mentions that the PDU contemplates the construction of around 1,600 homes and 300 premises in the Pok Ta Pok golf course, which is unacceptable, since it seriously undermines sustainability.
This, he specified, will increase the saturation of the drainage and sewage systems, causing the hotel zone to collapse.
Also, he warned that the sewage can contaminate the Nichupté lagoon.
In this sense, he said he trusted that the current municipal administration does not authorize the project and contemplates a PDU planned with support in favor of citizens, collaborators, businessmen and contributes to the public works that are being carried out for the modernity and mobility of Cancun.
The text concludes by appealing to the Federal government to be vigilant in having an instrument that promotes a healthy environment.
“We turn to you so that the government you head is vigilant that the new PDU respects the environment and sustainability,” he prays.
