Tulum, Q.R. — The Municipal Government of Tulum will move forward with the construction of a new university that was announced earlier this year. The project was canceled after a land donation for its construction fell through.
However, Mayor Marciano Dzul Caamal says the government has found a new property for the university. He says next week, a meeting will be held with the Institute of Educational Physical Infrastructure of Quintana Roo and the Technological University to resume the project since the financial resources are still there.
Earlier this year, the government had difficulties obtaining the necessary construction permits for the previously donated land. He says the municipal government was able to find a new piece of land to donate for the construction of a new Technological University of Tulum that will keep local students, local.
In January, City Hall approved a 20-hectare donation north of Tulum to build the new university, however, they were unsuccessful in obtaining construction permits. This time, Caamal says the donated land is in the southern part of the city, near the Cristal neighborhood, and is 10 hectares in size.
“We made a donation for a university for Tulum. We did it to benefit the citizens so that their children do not have to go to other municipalities,” he said.
