Members of the group Unidos por Jardines de la Paz y Colonias Aledañas AC announced that they obtained a definitive suspension to protect the trees that currently exist in San Rafael Park.
Gabriela Cervantes, president of the association, maintained that the determination of the Seventh District Court in Administrative, Civil and Labor Matters It prevents the felling or removal of some 50 trees located along Mariano Azuela Street.
“Two days ago the court just notified us that we have the definitive suspension of file 1235, what does this mean, well, it has two connotations; The first is that, since the trees are no longer there, they cannot give it to us because of the trees that have already been cut down, but there is evidence that they existed and that they were cut down, because SIAPA recognizes this and they presented these studies of urban trees and the trees that they cut down, which they speak of approximately 300 trees. The other is the definitive suspension, in the second part it comes to protect all the trees in the park, including all those who are on the side of Mariano Azuela”, he said.
The neighbor stated that Although the trees were supposed to be transplanted, they observed that they were felled and ground, so they asked them to show how and where they were transplanted.
It’s a statement, The Intermunicipal System of Potable Water and Sewerage Services (SIAPA) reported that the resolution does not imply suspending the works of the collector and only refers to the suspension of tree felling. They affirm that there is no need to cut down any kind of trees, so the work will continue its process according to what is established in its execution. They reiterated that these works are necessary to mitigate flooding in the surrounding neighborhoods.
