State in process of regularizing 12 Felipe Carrillo Puerto settlements

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — The state’s Urban Development secretary is in the process of regularizing 12 settlements in Felipe Carrillo Puerto. The irregular areas are home to more than 450 people who have been living there for several years.

Since the irregular settlements are not recognized as being part of a municipality, they are often without basic utility services. Those who live in the settlements are also often without property deeds.

Armando Lara De Nigris, the Secretariat for Sustainable Urban Territorial Development (Sedetus), began the regularization process last week in the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

He reported that nearly 450 people who live in the irregular colonies of Felipe Carrillo Puerto began their regularization process.

“Directing human resources, budgetary and material resources to combat poverty and reduce inequality gaps are the new priorities of Quintana Roo, and it is the goal that Governor Mara Lezama has set for us,” Lara De Nigris said.

Families who live in the settlements of Francisco May (Polígono-I), Constituyentes del 74 (Polígono-I), Javier Rojo Gómez (Polígono-II), Lázaro Cárdenas (Polígono-II), Rafael E. Melgar (Polígono-II ), Juan Bautista Vega (Polygon-II), Cecilio Chi (Polygon-II), Emiliano Zapata (Polygon-III), Jesús Martínez Ross (Polygon-III), Plan de Ayutla (Polygon-IV), Plan de Guadalupe (Polygon -IV) and Plan de la Noria (Polygon-IV) attended the government public meeting that could result in them obtaining property deeds.
