Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, May 18, 2018
Mayor Kiko Munro presented fishermen and members from the COPETUS Cooperative plans for a project to rehabilitate the boat dock landing area known as La Bajada, representing an investment of approximately 12 million pesos over the next three months. The project, funds for which would be obtained from the Federal Maritime Land Zone (ZOFEMAT), will include construction along the 120 m of coastal front as well as 2 hydraulic concrete ramps.
Plans for the boat launch area include renovation of the existing dock, a new dock, pavement, a Fishing Affairs Office, and parking, along with entry and surveillance posts. The space is also to include an exhibit on the history of fishing in the area, a monument in honor of “Fallen Fishermen”, among other important elements.
