Puerto Peñasco mayor Ernesto “Kiko Munro” recently oversaw progress on infrastructure projects to renovate the Malecón Fundadores in the Old Port, as well as the northern and southern entry points to Playa Hermosa.
Through a press release, the mayor detailed these three projects are among five authorized to address infrastructure needs, which total approximately 30.9 million pesos. With about 50% progress, work on these areas should be completed by mid-August, or rather about a month before the end of the present city administration.
“Puerto Peñasco has taken off,” remarked the mayor, “Tourism, services, public works, and much more has not ceased to grow during the two administrations we’ve led, which is why we say Peñasco is on track for the next step.”
Renovation on the Malecón Fundadores consists of repairing benches, building bench-landscaping, rehabilitating existing lamps, laying decorative flagstone around the flagpole base, relocation of the C5 security camera, removal and replacement of lamps, and illumination for both the shrimp fisherman and central statue. Additional work in the area includes replacement of pillars, rehabilitating the handicapped ramp along with lights at Plaza Colosio, and placement of informative signs around the malecon and Plaza Colosio, among other tasks.
Work at the northern and southern entrances to Playa Hermosa, and in turn to the certified Sandy Beach area and Las Gaviotas, consists of repaving roads and rehabilitating parking areas, maintenance of the ZOFEMAT access ramp, installation of gate arms for vehicle entry, a security area with video monitoring linked to C5 in strategic points, and green areas, along with installation and repair of public lighting, among other measures.
