Malecón Tajamar kidnapped by radical environmentalists says Cancun businessman

Cancun, Q.R. — Property owners in Malecón Tajamar have been invited to participate in a 10-day public consultation to ratify the area that has been kidnapped by radical environmentalists, says Cancun businessman.

Vice President of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE) of the Caribbean, Miguel Angel Lemus Mateos, invited the owners of properties in Malecón Tajamar to participate in the consultation that began Friday.

The controversial property has been in litigation since last June when the third Collegiate Court ruled in favor of an Amparo filed by the Mexican Center for Environmental Law (Cemda). The Amparo, along with 13 filed complaints, has seen the property remain locked down for further development.

It also resulted in a judge ordering the restoration of the 78.4 hectare property, however, Lemus Mateos says there is nearly $5 billion USD in potential losses and that he is hoping the new government will release the property again for developing.

“Legal bodies have not yet been exhausted. There is an appeal for review in the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation which must be appealed by those affected who are the investors, who are facing an unbeatable opportunity with public consultations.”

He expressed his confidence that the arrival of president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, will help unlock the trial because “the area remains a hostage by a group of radical ecologists.”

He says that property investors in the project have been invited to participate in the Municipal Institute of Planning, which is a citizen consultation to update the Urban Development Plan of the municipality of Benito Juárez.

Miguel Ángel Lemus added that “Within the master plan of the National Fund for Tourism Promotion, Tajamar is the urban center of the city and we all know how it is at this moment, kidnapped by radical environmentalists. But the change of administration is bringing us new actors at the federal level.”

The public consultation for Malecón Tajamar will continue until August 20.
