Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — Approximately 71 million pesos has been earmarked for public infrastructure projects in Felipe Carrillo Puerto. Governor Mara Lezama Espinosa says the funding has been secured through the Secretary of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Sedatu).
Her announcement was made Monday after a meeting in Mexico City with Sedatu Director Román Meyer Falcón. She says the money will be used for the construction of streets, urban improvement and public spaces in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
“We have managed like never before, before the Government of Mexico with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, before the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit and before Sedatu, to achieve this objective and bring social justice to our communities,” said the Governor.
Mara Lezama explained that the investment of more than 71 million pesos will be allocated through the Comprehensive Neighborhood Improvement program in eight communities in the municipality of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.
The Mayan municipalities to receive the project funding include Chumpón, Chun On, Chun Yah, Yokdzonot Chico, San Antonio Norte, Cecilio Chí, Chunyaxhé, and Kankabzonot.
The projects will be carried out in coordination with Sedatu in order to reduce lags and settle a historic debt to communities that have been left behind. She said the labor for projects will be hired out locally, creating 3,221 jobs.
The infrastructure is complementary to priority projects such as the Tulum International Airport and the Mayan Train.
During this meeting, other priority projects such as Parque del Jaguar, Mercado de Bienestar, the road to Vigía Chico, Parque Andrés Quintana Roo, among others, were also reviewed.
