Two months ago, Bonilla announced that his government intends to expropriate this private club to put it at the service of society.
The governor accused the owners of failing to comply with their financial obligations, such as paying property and water taxes, and referred to Tijuana’s mayor, Arturo González Cruz, of “covering up” and “taking advantage” of the situation.
This Tuesday, the head of state formally formulated his intentions to confiscate the club. Nevertheless, he said, “all Tijuana residents” would have access to the recreational space.
The publication notes that the intent of the expropriation of this property is to enable an urban park for social interaction, due to the need for green spaces for recreation.
“The lands of the Tijuana Country Club are the most appropriate, the most convenient and indispensable for carrying out the construction and qualification works of the Complejo Interactivo Campestre project, by virtue of the absence of other properties in the city that meet the characteristics,” the decree reads.
The Head of the Government Secretariat, Amador Rodriguez Lozano, will be responsible for coordinating and appointing persons who will inform the partners, and who will be given a guarantee of a hearing.
The public benefit declaration, signed by Bonilla and his cabinet minister, is effective from the date of its publication.
