Baja California Governor Marina Avila and Mexicali Mayor Norma Bustamante held Monday an event to announce the rehabilitation of the lagoon system.
The governor said the project was planned back in November and will be developed along with local residents.
“This will become Mexicali’s most important park,” the governor said. “We expect to have a space for comprehensive development of children while giving Mexicali the green areas it deserves.”
Carlos Torres, the governor’s husband, was appointed Public Spaces Regeneration Program that will be in charge of turning gray areas into green ones along with businessmen.
State Secretary of Infrastructure and Urban Development Arturo Espinoza said construction is set to begin in two months. The project includes children areas and sports areas, and is expected to finish next year.
