Will the Wednesday tianguis be moved elsewhere during the construction?

when will the improvements of the streets around the plaza take place? if it wasn't for this board we wouldn't even know about it. we are putting off painting and new signage because of the predictable dust and dirt....we're supposing that they plan on completion before the 16 de septembre celebrations.

What is the work to be done at the Ajijic tianguis?

I know one thing. I go often and the road being cobblestone is very difficult to manoeuvre. I look down most of the time and miss a lot. I just can't take the risk in falling and I'm sure it's the same for many.

The Tianguis is getting adoquin which are interlocking paver blocks down the middle 2 meters with a large pad at the top and bottom for discharging passengers with handicaps.

The work at the plaza is planned for October.

potholes are the responsibility of SIMAPA. Please call them. Sidewalks are the responsibility of the property owners. If they don't fix them complain in writing to the Delegado - giving the address.

Harry, I'd like to thank you for your hard efforts. I was doubtful at first, but I think this paving will benefit everyone who visits the tianguis.

I too would like to thank Harry and the other members of the committee. They work hard for no money and what sometimes seems like little gratitude. .

When guad farmacy was asked by the Delegado to fix their sidewalks, they offered to pay for one bag of cement (200pesos). Send a complaint in writing to the delegado about them and it will give the delegado ammunition to force the issue

i dont speak spanish. it should be a mexican writing not me. there are several mex people who sell things right near that sidewalk, & many passerbys. it happens to be the worst sidewalk i have seen yet. thats a multi million/billion $$ corp. guess they think most customers use the parking lot. they also wouldnt pay up if someone sued.

Thank you, Harry, for always offering the practical solutions for community issues.

I was just at the Farmacia today and did not even notice a problem with the sidewalk. I always walk carefully, and it is just one more place to be cautious. But, if I were bothered by it I would follow your advice.

Ajijic's delegado Hector speaks and reads english. Complaints to him can be in english. They can also be pm'd or emailed to me.
