Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Mayor Lili Campos says the city is moving forward with the cleaning of Fifth Avenue. In a press conference, Campos reported reaching an agreement with workers and unions that will see mobile businesses relocated.

She says that starting Friday, those mobile businesses, approximately 130, will be removed from Fifth Avenue and relocated along 14th,16th and 34th Streets north for proper placement. Their relocation, she says, will be the second phase of the cleaning of the city’s popular shopping avenue.
