Mahahual, Q.R. — A state real estate project is being worked on in Mahahual that would provide building lots and the regularization of irregular settlements.
José Alberto Alonso Ovando, the Director of the Agencia de Proyectos Estratégicos del Gobierno de Quintana Roo (Agepro), says the project could be implemented as soon as the end of the year.
The idea is to provide plumed building lots, which would help address the lack of housing. The state agency head also said they are working on regularizing four of the six irregular settlements around Mahahual.
Ovando says the Quintana Roo Strategic Projects Agency has a projection to create a new colony of between 200 and 300 lots with services. He says not only will the available lots help with the housing shortage, it will also go a long way to stopping land from being invaded by squatters, which has become a huge problem around the state.
Ovando says the Agency is still in the study phase but are hoping to have it finished by the end of the year at which time it will be executed through the Secretariat of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development.
He also said that the Agepro project includes the regularization of four of the six irregular settlements, Orgullo, Chechen, el km 55 and Flamingos. As for the other two, La Victoria and Banicero, those settlements will remain pending since they are in the middle of a legal situation regarding property titles.
The lots that will be offered will be on the coastal side. He did not provide a cost or potential cost on the lots or the size Agepro will make available.
