Gran Solaris fail to appear for their own city council meeting

Cancun, Q.R. — Representatives for the upcoming Gran Solaris hotel in the Cancun Hotel Zone did not attend the scheduled meeting at Cancun City Hall yesterday where they were to present documents and permits for the construction of the hotel.

The company Gran Solaris did not attend its own hearing with the Benito Juárez City Council to present the legal sustenance of the municipal permits they have for their hotel project next to Delfines beach, which has been temporarily suspended.

Municipal trustee, Karina Martinez Lara, explained that the company was summoned to present the documents that it considers pertinent to support the authorization for its hotel project.

Since no representative from the company made an appearance, they have been given five working days in which to produce the documents. If they do not present in the time, the valuation of their permits will be based on the documents that the municipality has.

In regards to whether this would mean the revocation of authorization, Martínez Lara reiterated that the resolution will depend on the evaluation of the evidence, both by the Urban Development management, the interested councilors and the company.

Once the five-day period has ended, a face-to-face hearing will be held for the release of evidence, which is schedule for December 13, where the evidence presented by each of the parties will be accepted or rejected.

The Gran Solaris Cancun project, together with El Mirador de la Zona Hotelera, generated outcry from environmentalists and citizens who oppose the construction. The project has been suspended due to accusations they company is lacking proper legal documents.
