By stating that “paradise must not be destroyed”President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) He called to update or, where appropriate, develop an urban development plan in Tepoztlán, Morelos, to protect it and prevent the beauty of this Magical Town from being destroyed.

“This is a very important issue you are dealing with. Tepoztlán is a sanctuary, it is one of the most beautiful towns in the world that has to be taken care of, and the communal authority and the municipal authorities have to review the urban development plan and apply it. First, see if it exists; second, update it, because the population is already large, it is no longer possible to continue handing out lots or selling land, the population is already large, hence the lack of services”.
