“The main challenge is to respect our Historic Center, no construction permit is given if it is not endorsed by the INAH, it’s that simple. There have been situations in which developers claim that they have problems with the INAH, and that is a requirement, if you are within the polygon that the INAH regulates, it is a requirement (to have the appropriate regulations), ”he explained.

Regarding the modifications that are made to a large part of buildings or new constructions on the property of the Historic Center, Estavillo Kelly, argued that the INAH does not regulate the use of land, rather it regulates or supervises the historical monument, building, or enclosure, respect its architectural appearance.

“We intervene in the use of land in what can be developed whether it is family housing or commerce, whatever the polygon where it is located says, everyone has different vocation”, he commented.
