With the purpose of improving the urban image and rescuing public spaces, authorities and municipal officials planted a native ash tree of the mountain mesophilic forest in Plazuela del Carbón, an activity that is added to the maintenance work carried out in the area and the Xallitic esplanade since July.
At the site, the municipal president Hipólito Rodríguez Herrero confirmed the cleaning and repair of the blacksmith shop that protects the historic tree of European origin that is in the square, which is 140 years old. Also, the placement of four stone and three wooden benches, so that society can enjoy this place.
Later, accompanied by the council members Guillermina Ramírez Rodríguez, María Consuelo Niembro Domínguez, and Consuelo Ocampo Cano, he toured the steps that lead to Plaza Xallitic, where the main waterfalls and fountains were put into operation, after three years of not working.
“It is a natural setting where families can enjoy a good landscape, go for a walk or sit on the benches. The facades of the houses were painted, everything necessary was repaired to give the population recreational spaces ”.
