TULUM, México – In a groundbreaking move, the Tulum Cabildo has given the green light to the first modification of the 2023 Annual Operating Program, signaling a strategic leap towards orderly and transformative development in this picturesque Mexican town.
The momentous decision was reached during the Forty-Sixth Ordinary Cabildo Session, held to deliberate the outcomes of the Second Extraordinary Session of the Municipal Development Planning Committee for Tulum. The heart of this resolution lies in the incorporation of Modification 1 of the POA – an ambitious plan that promises to shape the future of the region.
Among the pivotal changes greenlit is an excess allocation from the Municipal Social Infrastructure and Territorial Demarcations Fund (FAISMUN) dedicated to essential projects. These include the Construction of a Sanitary Drainage Network in the Huracanes neighborhood of Tulum, alongside the establishment of new wells and the maintenance of existing ones in the municipal seat.
In a bid to fortify security measures in the city, the Fortalecimiento de los Municipios y de las Demarcaciones Territoriales del Distrito Federal (FORTAMUN-DF) witnessed an increase of $4,874,930.85 for the Construction of Public Safety Control Arches in Tulum, raising the total budget to an impressive $13,143,449.85.
Furthermore, the 28th Federal Participation Fund will now see an expanded budget for the 2nd phase of the Construction of a Social Assistance Center (CAS) in Tulum. The allocation has been boosted by an additional $758,137.65 pesos, with the total amount reaching $8,258,137.65 pesos.
Drawing from their own resources, the Cabildo has approved a substantial budget increase for the 2023 fiscal year, amounting to $21,400,000.00 pesos. This generous provision will finance a host of critical projects, including the Construction of Arcotecho Structures in Sahcabmucuy and Akumal, electrification and lighting upgrades at the Deportiva Unit in Tulum, and road construction, curbing, and sidewalks in Francisco Uh May.
Additionally, the region’s cultural and recreational spaces are set to receive a much-needed facelift. The Cabildo has sanctioned the Rehabilitation of the Perimeter Fence at Javier Rojo Gómez Park in Punta Allen, as well as the restoration of the access road to Punta Allen itself. Furthermore, the Municipal Library in Tulum will soon boast an improved perimeter fence, while the Office of the Municipal Treasury will witness a significant expansion.
The Cabildo’s vision for Tulum leaves no stone unturned, addressing both infrastructural necessities and community well-being. As the region looks forward to a future shaped by these transformative projects, Tulum’s trajectory as a hub of sustainable development becomes ever more evident.
