Concerned citizens discuss sustainable growth in San Pancho...
A meeting was held on Friday, March 31st to discuss growth and in particular the proposed building of a 6-story condominium complex on the beach in downtown San Pancho. Local residents voiced their concerns about the impact that higher-density construction projects such as this would have on the infrastructure of the town. Water, sewer, road congestion, garbage and blocking of light and air to neighboring properties were the main concerns. Other concerns were flooding and storm surge problems, as well as the impact on San Pancho's nesting turtles.
Most of the attendees were strongly opposed to the idea. Everyone is hoping to find a way to make the inevitable growth something more of a win/win with a lower-density, higher-quality and generally more-sustainable project. That being said, the zoning for a 6-story building in that location has been in place for many years.
The discussion continues to evolve and there will be another meeting soon We hope you can attend.
