The facades of several buildings in the Historic Center are in the process of being renovated, both in their appearance and in their construction.

According to official information, the current administration found a high degree of deterioration and abandonment in some buildings in the area of ​​monuments, and that is why this program was started, which diagnoses and intervenes the minor or major wear that these historic monuments of this zone, to comply with the regulatory instances of sites and monuments, regulated the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

It is a municipal program, with municipal resources, where the direction of the Historic Center (and Heritage) determines what, how, and where the work should be done… There are other (properties) that for some cause or reason are abandoned or deteriorated and have not been intervened by the owners, either due to lack of resources or lack of commitment. What we are also looking for is that the owners of these properties, especially residential houses, allow us to carry out this work because there are houses where authorization has been requested and they are not allowing it,” said the director of the Historical and Heritage Center, Emilio Laura.

He explained that to start this program, in November 2021 an invitation was made to the owners of houses and businesses, to give them maintenance and that, although there was good participation from individuals, there are abandoned properties, others for sale, and some more in legal processes; and in all these cases, the municipality will attend to them directly until the entire historic center is covered.

For three weeks, San Francisco, Hernández Macías (fourth and fifth), Hidalgo (first and second), Zacateros (first, second, and almost third) streets have been intervened; the works continue in Umarán, San Francisco (first), Relox (first) and Correo (first and second).

An example of these restorations is the Chorro building, which is a cataloged representative historical heritage property, which has been specifically treated with a restoration technique and not just apparent paint.

The first stage of this municipal program considers the zone of monuments, which corresponds to the 64 blocks declared in 1982 by the INAH, which it is contemplated to conclude this month so that these works are not affected by the start of the rainy season. In the end, this area could be extended to the Unesco Zone, which is the buffer zone abroad and covers 96 blocks.
