At present, there are already zones of Bahía de Banderas that have a Partial Development Plan, 5 of which stand out in the municipality:
- Costa Banderas Partial Development Plan -marked H127- shows low land densities.
- Punta de Mita Partial Development Plan – Regulates 6658 hectares marked T15 and T25, likewise shows low densities.
- Partial Plan of Plot 1002 -marked T25- shows around 13 dwellings per hectare and in its tourism development has 272 units.
- Polygon of Litibu – the dimension of the land that it covers is of 167 hectares of which 152 belong to FONATUR and 15 are for investment; these hectares are divided into 41 lots and has 3,200 rooms 947 dwellings.
- Partial Plan of the Riviera Estates – marked H51- orders a total of 521 hectares divided into 94 lots of 2000 square meters and has an average of 12 dwellings per hectare.
Although it is true that the partial development plans encompass a large extent of the land uses of each part of the territory to be ordered, monitoring a responsible growth that does not exceed the planet’s capacities and its regeneration, they also consider other environmental aspects such as:
- The irregular settlements in which the current studies are carried out for Destiladeras-Punta de Mita were found two on the river banks and fillings of garbage which are also burned generating more pollution.
- It was also noted the proliferation of 13 antennas which are also a type of visual pollution and on which they will have to work a strategy to eradicate this problem since the Partial Plans also include urban image as their responsibility.
- Currently, garbage collection is carried out by the company GIRSA, which has a total of 12 units to serve the entire municipality. In Punta de Mita, 16 tons of garbage is collected daily.
At present there is a 47% deficit of water supply in the area, the need for this resource in Higuera Blanca, Emiliano Zapata and Corral del Risco is of 1175 cubic meters, and what is currently supplied is 616 cubic meters. There is a well in Higuera Blanca with enough water for the region but it has pumping problems since it does not have the correct facilities.
The Punta Mita development, like Higuera Blanca, has its water treatment plant with a capacity of 20-22 liters per second and a water quality and purity of 95%; because it uses an aerobic process. The aerial systems of wastewater treatment takes advantage of the capacity of microorganisms to assimilate organic matter and nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) dissolved in the wastewater for their own growth, in the presence of oxygen, which will act as an electron acceptor in the process of oxidation of organic matter.
In conclusion, the first objective of the Partial Development Plans is to allow a balance between the development of the municipality and nature. Working with the needs and demands of the planet is the responsibility of governments and their people. The planet belongs to everyone and it is everyone’s responsibility to take care of it and for this reason we invite you to watch the IMPLAN video to know the information on the Destiladeras-Punta de Mita Partial Development Plan. Come to IMPLAN to know the information and workshops imparted to society at large, associations, companies and government so that we are all well informed and all of us put our grain of sand for the welfare of the planet.
