Remodelling Paradise

Is this proposed "remodelling" of the walkway just the section from the museum to the pier? Or the section from the canal around to Playa La Madera?
If the latter, yes, it certainly needs some upgrading and a lot of repair.
If the former, what are they thinking? It's perfect the way it is - a very large part of Zihua's charm. Remodel? How? Widen it? Bright lights? Off-ramps? Cut down more trees? Yikes!

It's the entire walkway, and they also want to add a walkway from La Ropa to Capricho del Rey, entirely unnecessary. It's an election year and funds must be siphoned from budgets and contracts to buy votes, so that's part of where this all comes in. I've heard rumors that the architect has political aspirations himself, but I don't know that to be a fact. All I know is that he is the owner of Loot, he is the person who designed the statues we all call los cotonetes (the Q-tips) where the bus stop used to be across from Elektra. We have never seen him or any other city officials responsible for this remodeling project actually walking along the Paseo del Pescador as many of us do daily. To them it's just designs on paper and a budget. Those of us who live here and who love our community are quite displeased with many facets of the project, however well-intentioned they might be. We draw the line at any more cement covering any more sand. We've already lost too much beach to greed and cement. No more!
