This letter is regarding the article, “Magic Town committee unveils 2022 action plan” by Dale Palfrey, published in your December 11-17 edition.
Ajijic will never be a Magic Town (Pueblo Magico) as long as it has broken-up streets and non-existing sidewalks, which are a terror for the elderly population to cross for fear of turning one’s ankle. One woman even died after falling and hitting her head on the ground.
It is sinful to harm citizens with this inferior infrastructure. There is also too much dog excrement on most streets, and the traffic lights at the corner of the Libramiento and the Carretera are an insult to the art of engineering. One of the best things that happens at this intersection is when the stop lights go out and, lo and behold, there is a free flow of traffic.
Poorer villages such as San Juan Cosala and San Antonio Tlayacapan have better streets and sidewalks..
