Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- With the opinion of the neighbors against, real estate companies continue in an endless fight to build condominiums or vacation homes in natural areas that until a few years ago reflected the most iconic postcards.
Some of these, due to lack of funds, have remained as unfinished ‘black work’, others maintain posters that announce a future condominium tower under the slopes of Cerro del Vigía, however despite the fact that it has been mentioned on countless occasions that the old constructions located on the top are not at risk, year after year rock falls are reported and even so, no safe options have been installed to prevent landslides.
“We are worried, the concern is constant because the risk is latent there, they broke a stone, they broke a stone hill, which although they assure and say that they have all the elements of land use, that there is no problem, that they are going to continue because the risk is latent. It is enough to see that there are cracks in that piece ”, commented the President of the Colonos Association, Miguel Villa, to Reacción Informativa, this during the process of protection of the inhabitants of the Cerro against the construction company.
In addition to this, around this area, it is possible to find house works that were forgotten and half-built, giving the impression of wasting the so controversial question of construction.
