Series of meetings to achieve the first distinction of Sustainable Tourist Destination in Mexico
Being a tourist destination with the qualification of Sustainable is a challenge, the ADEPM and its associates are convinced that it must be achieved. For that, efforts are unified and progress is continued step by step in the legal process that this includes.
An approach was made to the Municipal President, Dr. Jaime Alonso Cuevas Tello, to review the main lines of action and processes contemplated in the Partial Plan for Urban and Tourist Sustainable Development of Punta de Mita. The study conducted by the ADEPM is under the guidelines set by SECTUR, with the clear objective that Punta Mita becomes the first Sustainable Development area in the country.
On the other hand, the municipal government of Bahía de Banderas, through the plans that it is carrying out to improve the territorial ordering of the municipality, promoting the Urban Development Plan, submitted to public consultation the guidelines that this study shows, with the purpose of to make society participate in this process.
During this consultation, the objectives, the important reasons that exist in the municipality to carry it out and the legal considerations it contains were presented. The forum lasted three days.
The ADEPM, which has shown itself to be a decisive and transcendental association in the matter, received an invitation to share with the audience the main statutes ofthe study carried out for Punta Mita and its surroundings, which adds important advances and actions for the Municipal Development Plan.
Last January 8 took place the 100-days-report of Municipal President of Bahía de Banderas, Dr. Jaime A. Cuevas. In his report he spoke of the progress that has been achieved in the different sectors of the municipality; and the proposals and actions that are currently being promoted in his administration.
Among them he mentioned:
- Establish the bases to carry out, according to the guidelines defined by SECTUR, the formalization of the Partial Plan of Sustainable Urban Tourism Development for Punta de Mita. This project will start the legal process of its formalization as of January, beginning as an initiative in the Bahia de Banderas town hall, to then begin its public consultation and continue with the installation process.
Finally the distinction for which we have been working throughout these last months, is already moving forth to become a reality, Punta Mita and its neighboring towns will be the first tourist destinations in Mexico with the distinction of “Sustainable Destination”, and will be based according to the objectives set by the United Nations Organization (UN), which will serve as an example for the other territories of our country.
