The gobernador authorized some money to the local mayor to "remodel" the downtown waterfront walkway even though absolutely NO ONE wanted it remodeled, simply MAINTAINED. The local mayor has a cement company. There were no bids on the public contract that anyone is aware of and no one knows what the budget authorized by the Gober was, same as for the ciclopista. You can fill in the blanks. It appears this is a reward for loyalty.

The ciclopista we are really looking forward to being able to use to bypass Zihua and I expect lots of the locals will walk and run or cycle the section from the canal to the sports fields.

Although there are better ways to utilize the money, it should mean more people walking and running and cycling which will help with health care costs in the long run. We already have seen an uptick in people exercising in the last 5-6 years.

Do they plan on rebuilding the basketball court? Sure hope so.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the old one. The only "plan" I know of calls for covering up MORE beach with MORE concrete. Something absolutely nobody but the concrete vendor wants.

I know there wasn't anything wrong with it. I sure hope they put one back there. Won't be the same without it.

From what I'm seeing on the camera it appears that they're leaving the court itself alone and nuking everything else. So I think the court will survive, though who knows what the surroundings will look like. If it ain't broke don't fix it applies here.

if the "repair" kills long existing trees needed for shade, it will be very sad!

Yes, I agree with you, Juan. After the cancha is done, the contruction is due to move towards the main pier, which goes through the area by Casa Marina and where the fishermen sell their catch. Lots of beautiful giant tree lower branches, no doubt, will be lopped off just to get the backhoe through. Sniff.

Don't count on it. The mayor owns the concrete company.

Does anyone have a drawing or sketch of what they think the finish product is going to look like? Sure would answer a lot questions if they posted a drawing of what the project is going to look like when they are done.

What ever they are building, is being done very slowly.
