The Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (SEDATU) announced the completion of five social infrastructure works in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas. These projects aim to provide better public spaces for the state’s population. 

The urban development works started in 2019 as part of the Urban Improvement Program (PMU). It involved a MX$204 million (US$11.32 million) investment that aimed to deploy vital infrastructure groundworks to strengthen the development of the state, explained SEDATU via a press release. The works are: the construction of the Patria Nueva Sports Center and the 22 de Noviembre Market; the renovation of the central park and surrounding streets; the development of El Aguaje Park and Community Development Center; renovations to the central avenue; and renovations to the 5 de Mayo Park. 

Román Meyer Falcón, Head, SEDATU, explains that PMU aims to grant communities access to quality public spaces, while strengthening the development of families in the state. Meyer highlighted that the new infrastructure would facilitate mobility and accessibility for residents and that public spaces, swimming pools, sports courts, library and equipment will promote integration. 

The National Housing Commission (CONAVI), a governmental institution that provides housing support, has invested MX$195 million (US$10.76 million) from 2019 to date in Tuxtla Gutierrez to aid more than 3,700 families to build, expand or improve their homes. “These supports have the character of subsidies, that is, they are not loans or credits; Therefore, the procedures to obtain them are free,” explains CONAVI on its website. 

CONAVI explained that it prioritizes communities with higher rates of marginalization, which include those with high rates of violence, people with disabilities and native populations.
