Bulldozer removes staircase on San Miguel’s iconic Montes de Oca Street


San Miguel de Allende.- Mayor Mauricio Trejo announced the beginning of the recovery of public spaces with the intervention of machinery in San Miguel’s Montes de Oca street to build a new vehicular passage.

From 8:00 am on Wednesday, October 13, the municipal president arrived with machinery to remove the staircase that had been built on this street, in order to make it open again to vehicular traffic and pedestrian crossing.

“They privatized this street for building this hotel and they privatized one of the most emblematic streets in San Miguel. I made a commitment with the people of San Miguel to recover the public spaces that the past administration privatized. At this moment we are complying with one of these commitments ”, declared mayor Mauricio Trejo while he was standing right on Montes de Oca Street, which connects the Historic Center with the Camino Real a Querétaro.

The mayor said that this is how the recovery of its historical patrimony begins, so that all its inhabitants, tourists, and visitors can enjoy these spaces, and not for personal benefits.

Montes de Oca was transformed into a pedestrian space during the last municipal administration

“It is one of the most photographed streets in San Miguel de Allende for decades. It will be a fast, clean work and, above all, without ‘corruption‘ “, the mayor emphasized.
