State and federal authorities have issued a summons for public input in a review of legal instruments governing development in the Lake Chapala region, to be carried out from July 22 through September 7.
The purpose is to collect opinions on three key regulatory codes concerning urban development and related environmental matters: Jalisco’s Program of Regional Ecological Ordinances, its Regional Urban Integration Plan, and the urban development programs enacted in each municipality.
The seven Jalisco municipalities located in the Chapala region are Jamay, Ocotlán, Poncitlán, Chapala, Jocotepec, Tuxcueca and Tizapán el Alto.
An overview of the consultation process, contained in a dense 1,088-page gazette of relevant data, may be accessed by clicking on the Chapala icon at http://siga.jalisco.gob.mx/consultaordenamientos.
The actual ordinances in question are available for consultation at Chapala’s Urban Planning office on the ground floor of City Hall, Jocotepec’s Ecology office at the Municipal Auditorium, Guadalupe Victoria 71, and pertinent offices in the other municipalities.
