AMLO addressed illegal buildings in PV


(Conchas Chinas HOA worked with Profeco, the Ecology Protection agency to stop construction, and ANA worked with PRODEUR The Attorney Generals office of Jaliscso which stated that the city must work with ANA prior to approval of permits.

President Amlo of Mexico spoke about Puerto Vallarta Irresponsible Development, recently reported by Mexican Press. Feburary 2021

The issue of the illegal construction of large buildings in Puerto Vallarta was brought to the morning press conference of the President of the Republic Andrés Manuel López Obrador, this Wednesday in Mexico City, who upon hearing the problem announced that he would give instructions to the Secretary of the Environment, María Luisa Albores and the Attorney General’s Office to act in this regard.

Questioned by the journalist of the Gulf Corporation, Judith Sánchez, who exposed the proliferation of large towers in this tourist destination, specifically mentioned the case of Conchas Chinas, where they intend to build 14-story buildings, impacting the environment and land use housing, to change it to tourism, affecting the architectural value of the area.


The executive indicated that it is the state authorities who grant these permits and asked the Ministry of the Environment to give a report on the case, so that they act together with the Attorney General’s Office to prevent these works, if they affect the environment and if buildings that exceed those heights.

The journalist asked her: “What is the federation doing in this regard, to stop this type of abuse by these construction companies?”

The president replied, “In this case, the state authorities grant these permits, but the Ministry of the Environment also has to do, so we are going to ask María Luisa Albores to see what it is about.” ( Actually the City Granted these Permits)

The communicator added that there are even complaints in Semarnat, where they said there is no permit for some construction companies, and insisted on questioning what the federation would do to avoid damages.

“That the Ministry of the Environment and the Attorney General’s Office act and that construction be prevented, if it is illegal, and if the environment is affected, and if it is not allowed to build buildings of those heights … all that can be avoided, because it is a violation of the law, but there is also a regulation that has to do with the states, you have to see it, “said López Obrador.

He acknowledged that the federal government must put pressure on state authorities and stressed that the Ministry of the Environment does not issue permits for such projects.

It should be remembered that there are 9 buildings that the Asociación de Colonos de Conchas Chinas, AC, have indicated that they do not have the approval in terms of environmental impact, and that Semarnat has told them that it did not grant permission, even the order of multi-story demolition of one of these towers.

Given this, the President of the Republic promised to act, even said he knows this area of Puerto Vallarta.

Wanna’ Make a Difference?

For over 20 years the Amapas Neighborhood Association (ANA) has been working on improving the Amapas Colonia. Even with the pandemic, ANA remains strong. We’re taking this opportunity to let you know what we’ve done for the neighborhood lately.

Safety and Security

  • Created Amapas Neighborhood Watch for entire colonia
  • Created street-based WhatsApp groups so neighbors can communicate to each other in English
  • Safety data collected over six months clearly shows decline in crime
  • Neighborhood Watch signs available for buildings to create a visual deterrent to criminals

Responsible Development

  • Serena Development on Calle Santa Barbara – ANA received supportive responses from PRODEUR (State attorney general) regarding our concerns; PROFECA closed the development down because it did not conduct an environmental impact study
  • ANA is negotiating with Serena developer to reduce capacity.
  • ANA has positive relationship with Serena developer to ensure needs of community are met.


  • In 20 days ANA will install a new trash receptacle at Los Pinos and the Highway.
  • The Serena developer will help us secure a meeting with SEAPAL, water office.
  • Serena developer has agreed to improve Calle Santa Barbara after work is completed, revitalize stairs to beach, and maintain tree that exists in the road.
  • ANA recognized by City for its work on improving infrastructure – streets, highway, and stairs.


  • The ANA community provided 22,000 meals to 5 PV colonias for 22 weeks during the pandemic.
  • Through the generous donations of ANA members and friends, we provided much needed assistance to our community and gave to those who provided support to us when we live and play in PV.

“How does the Amapas Neighborhood Association benefit me – personally?”
Well, that’s the thing, it’s not about you personally.

It’s about our entire neighborhood.

There are approximately 127 buildings in Amapas – some condominiums and some houses. Can you imagine what we could do if every one of these buildings were members of the most powerful neighborhood association in Puerto Vallarta?

It’s unimaginable. A stronger community with visible evidence of a united community has higher property value. That’s what we all want from our investment in PV.

Membership fees are 1800 pesos for an individual or 1500 pesos for each unit in a building if you all join. That’s less than $100 USD. Given our low taxes you can be a member, help keep our roads in good shape, and as you can see from everything we’ve done – so much more.

Your membership makes us stronger.

Home Latest news Local! National International Security Home / Puerto Vallarta / An aberration and simulation of Urban Development Plans An aberration and simulation of Urban Development Plans Categories! The lawyer Raúl Rodríguez Rosales, an expert in urban, environmental and real estate matters, has already analyzed the information presented in the public consultation, for the update of the Partial Urban Development Plans, which he described as an aberration and simulation. It may interest you: They propose that Vallarta be a “sustainable compact city” It should be remembered that from October 9 until November 9, the plans were installed in the 4 municipal delegations, the UMA and the Presidency, where the projects of the 12 urban districts are exposed. There, citizens can present their observations and contributions in writing, on the use of land and territorial planning of Puerto Vallarta.

An aberration and simulation of the Urban Development Plans
Tribuna de la Bahía 10/29/20, 1:30 PM

The lawyer Rodríguez gave as an example District 9, which includes the Conchas Chinas, Amapas, El Nogalito and South Hotel Zone Fractions. # “These plans that are in consultation, specifically District 9, from my point of view technically and legally are an aberration … a proposal that is actually a simulation, because I cannot call it something else,” he stressed. “Simply and simply violates every concept of orderly sustainable planning, definitely that proposal that is there, categorically is a simulation that weighs the investment of capital swallows only”.


He explained that in this area they have H1 of land use with respect for the environment; with 15 housing units per hectare, which regularly shows two or three levels of height, and in the project presented in this public consultation they contemplate 222 units. Now, he said, they also intend to include H2, H3 and H4, which is equivalent to putting a multifamily like La Aurora in the Conchas Chinas subdivision; What, from the environmental and technical point of view, it considered, that density is not viable, so it announced that it will be making the legal observations.
