The Rehabilitation of 17 streets will benefit more than 700 families (El Sol de Tijuana) September 9, 2012
Tijuana – Yesterday Baja California State Governor Jose Guadalupe Osuna Millan, indicated the government’s commitment to rehabilitate 17 streets (34 blocks) with asphalt paving that would benefit more than 700 families.
With investments of over 10 million pesos ($770,885) plus contributions of more than 1.2 million pesos ($92,506), the State Ministry Board of Infrastructure and Urban Development proceeded with work to demonstrate commitment in the community on behalf of B.C. Governor Osuna Millán.
In this way, by replacing and recycling asphalt, 748 homeowners in the Instituto Tecnológico Regional (ITR) development, in addition to resolving the poor condition of its access roads, will also benefit in having a better quality of life by transforming the urban image of the area.
"It is shameful to live in such conditions and is very important to obtain State Government support; now we can say that those commitments are a reality," expressed neighbors, Leticia leisure Núñez, and a representative accompanying Osuna Millán Governor.
At the same time, rehabilitation of the community Park was requested, which currently does not comply with the needs for a place of relaxation where children, youth and adults can spend their free time in sports or recreational activities.
The State Executive’s commitment to improvement, through the State Ministry of Social Development (Sedesoe), of the project will integrate a kiosk and walking path with a natural or artificial grass sports field and a playground.
During his message, the representative also invited Rep. Juan Manuel Gastelum Buenrostro, in charge of managing sufficient resources for Mexico City for Urban Development to build a decent park.
The federal official endorsed the commitment by beginning the respective efforts through having work started in the area. The State Government donated more than 200 seedlings to be planted by residents, who in turn have demonstrated that for success to occur, they will work as a team with authorities.
Osuna Millán stressed the importance of citizen participation in the project as his Administration starts to modernize the image of urban communities, as happened with the rehabilitation of the roads in the ITR.
"We will continue during the next few months to consolidate projects that represent the commitment assumed for bajacalifornianas families, parks, schools, roads and public infrastructure that will be put in place for the benefit of all," said the State Executive.
For its part, the Claudio playground has made clear it’s commitment to children and youth in the ITR, which is based on caring for the community park project so that they will have space in which to play and practice sports for many years.
Also joining Osuna Millan were Alderman Erwin Areizaga; owner of SIDUE, Carlos Flores Vazquez; Director of the State Commission for Tijuana Public Services (CESPT) and Juan Carlos Robles, Director General of the Board of Urbanization.
