The Commisario is working on a project to repair the roads from Beltrones toward Nacapule Canyon and is asking for financial support from the community. The paved part of the road covers the way up “H” to Calle 8, on to Tercera, out Ave “L” and on to Primara then to Lomas Del Mar and Loma Del Mar.
These roads are used by almost everyone who lives or travels north of the Beltrones Rd. The road has been called the “Loma Del Mar Road” but it is much more than that. Most of us are on the roads several times a day when we are here. There have been many heartfelt, volunteer efforts to repair the hundreds of pot holes on these roads but the patches usually are temporary at best. Many complain but few do anything beyond voicing their upset at the condition of these roads. A lot of the wear and tear is caused by the fully loaded beer and soda trucks as well as the Dump trucks, back hoes and front loaders. But we all use it. The Commisario will be asking Coke, Pepsi, Tecate and Pacifico to chip in to help with the repairs.
These are the questions I (George) asked the Commisario:
What is the scope or type of work being proposed?
way to repair the street nacapule
What is the proposed budget for the job?
$ 400,000.00 pesos
How many offers have been made for the proposed work?
4 and this is the best
What type of material would be used?
How long will it work?
When I went to start work?
when we collected the money
What is the guarantee or warranty?
How do you take the money out.
someone who is involved in the project will be saved
What happens to the money if the project does not occur, or if not in the middle?
the money is returned
A collection has already been taken up in the Loma Del Mar development and while it is substantial it is far from the 400,000 pesos that is the best bid. The Comisario feels very confident that he will be able to get matching funds from Guaymas if the residents of San Carlos are able to raise half of the cost of the project. i.e., 200,000 from the residents who use the road most.
If you are willing to participate in the project you can contact me. I will collect the money. I will give it to the Association at Loma Del Mar to hold safely.
I estimate there is somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 families in the Area north of Beltrones and not in Loma Del Mar. If 100 families will each donate $100 USD or the peso equivalent we can raise $10,000 or about ¼ the total cost of the project. I will provide a full and timely accounting of all funds collected until the project is complete.
We have put a drop dead date on the project of St Patrick’s Day, March 17th 2014. If we do not have enough raised by that date all moneys will be returned.
How about it? Are you in for $100 US or more? You know you want it. Our $100 is already in the pot,

A short history of the road..
History of the Nacapule Road: In the beginning there was dirt and cactus. Then Imobilaria Loma Del Mar paved the road out to the East gate of Loma del Mar. Most of the costs for this were recovered from the Membership of the LDM community over a period of some years. I believe the original agreement was that once built the City of Guaymas would maintain the road but I’ve seen no written agreement. Obviously the City never took responsibility for the road.
The history of the road from our SE corner to Lomas Del Mar is far more recent and available should it become pertinent.
