“For now we are going to put bathrooms in it, we are going to make a cafeteria in front and everything is donated by citizens who want Mazatlán, what we are going to invest will be minimal, such as lighting, painting so that every day, at any point of these two bays look and attract attention, “he detailed.

As for the Casa del Marino, the first mayor stated that for the moment the premises will not be touched in terms of maintenance or investment in it, due to legal and historical issues that are on the table.
