Public Works has completed a project benefitting 861 families by painting 42,809 square meters of facades, and repairing almost 9,000 square meters of walls. Public Works not only focuses on residential buildings but the walls and seating in the Jardín Principal as well. The project includes La Parroquia de la Luz.
Director of Public Works and Infrastructure Antonio Soria says that the idea is for people to live and grow in a dignified environment. As of the end of 2020 the improvement projects covered 13 areas, with the repair of 152 properties in the Guadalupe neighborhood, some adjacent to the Cachinches stream; 28 properties in Colonia Aurora; 11 in Colonia Providencia; 280 in San Antonio; and 61 in San Rafael.
With this program facades (and all exterior walls) were repaired and painted, and in some cases all four walls were attended to. The paint colors correspond to the city’s regulatory palette.
