This is part of a list sent to some of the Snowbird Community.  I thought it would be a good idea to share with you.

  • Garbage Cleanup – For the first month in office, Zacarias Curi and his councillors (regidores) donated their salary for the purposes of cleaning up the garbage and paying down the previous administrations CFE bill. There was a three day blitz of the town by the basureros to pick up tons of garbage. As an incentive Zacarias Curi passed legislation imposing fines and/or jail time for persons disposing of garbage in the streets and along the beaches. Jail time was handed out to several persons. New signage was posted at the entrance to the town proclaiming the fines…alerting anyone who came to Progreso..
  • Progreso Face Lift – Repainting of the City Hall was carried out by friends of Zacarias Curi before his installation as Mayor. It had not been painted in many years and is now blue and white. Just recently there is a new Sound and Light Show Saturday nights in the square. In the coming weeks many of the buildings in the main square are undergoing some restoration and will be repainted in new pastel colors (there are limited choices, similar to what are prescribed in Merida). Initial efforts are indicated for Calles 78 and 80 from the square to the Malecon.
  • Sundays in Progreso – a new BiciRuta along the Malecon with bike rentals. Traffic free every Sunday morning.
  • NEW Restaurants -depending on when you left, there are several new restaurants. Elio del Mare finally opened his new place in August for Italian food lovers.
  • La Cola Del Cocodrilo  Calle 40 x 23 y 25 is found in the previous Marmex Hotel.  The restaurant is open every day from Wed to Sun from 0800 to 9PM.  Every Wed there is a market for folks to enjoy.  They do have a face book page so check it out.
