An update meeting of the Pueblo Escenico Committee was held on Thursday, July 10 at the Marina Terra Hotel.
Four representatives of the construction projects being completed in San Carlos and the Mayor of Guaymas were present along with 20 people in the audience (4 Americans).
The Committee announced that these construction projects are being completed to promote tourism in San Carlos.
There are 16 parts to the construction project underway in San Carlos;
Sidewalks with handrails, lighting and wheelchair access
40 signs – directional, areas of interest, and activities symbols
Concrete street approaches
25 bus stops
Planted glorias at the Extra to the Ranchitos and in front of Santa Fe market
Fountain at entrance to the Country Club with lights and sound
The entire cost is 17 million pesos and 8 million has been spent, 51% of the projects have been completed.
A member of the audience noted that there has been standing water at some of the new concrete street approaches. The Committee answered that these will be repaired.
Another member of the audience questioned what the construction is that is occuring across from the Delfinario. The Committe answered that they are investigating this as this construction and the billboards along there do not have licenses from the City. The Committee noted this is land owned by the State Government.
The Committee noted that they are taking steps to reduce the number of billboards coming into and in San Carlos. They are also stated they are embarking on an effort to keep the streets and the beaches clean.
The Committee is preparing documents that they will take personally to the Secretary of Tourism in Mexico City next week.
Here is the fountain at the entrance to the Country Club under construction and the artists rendering of what it will look like when finished.
