Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Dismantling of the city’s central plaza of the old city hall has begun. Mayor Lili Campos announced that in 15 days, the remodeling of Plaza 28 de Julio will begin.
Once complete, it will offer people “a pleasant space with nature for the enjoyment of residents, visitors, social and cultural groups, among others.
“The intention is that the projects have progress that allows us to celebrate our solemn session here for the 30th anniversary as a municipality,” she said.
To date, the area has been cordoned off with fencing while workers begin the removal of concrete.
Campos reported that the entire project will cost around 45 million pesos, which will include leveling of the perimeter streets, the integration of Avenida 20 Norte to the design of the square and remodeling of the amphitheater as the main element.
The entire project is expected to be finished in four months.
Earlier this Spring, Campos announced the remodeling project, which at the time, was set to begin at the end of March so it could be inaugurated on July 28, the municipality’s 30th anniversary.
