They haven't paved Paula's street for more than 10 years, today she votes in León

Leon, Guanajuato. Palenque de Ibarrilla street, where Mrs. Paula, 37, lives, has not been paved for 10 years.

She and her neighbors walk through puddles and mud in rainy seasons. Living in one of the largest cities in the country, they still don't know what it's like to live on a paved street.

Today, Paula goes to the voting center in the Plaza de la Ciudadanía Griselda Álvarez, in the León I neighborhood, to see if the paving of her street is contemplated in one of the projects that the Municipality has planned, in which 95 will be invested millions of pesos.

This Thursday at 10 in the morning the 16 voting centers were opened for the 7 delegations of León. In each one, 4 projects are contemplated, but only one will win per zone.

People will decide what their priority is, between paved streets, recreation centers, parks, athletic tracks, public lighting and other alternatives. For the first time, citizens will decide on public works in the city.


Like Paula, several citizens line up under the sun to vote for the projects for their neighborhood. Gabriela Nava, a resident of the Presitas neighborhood, says that she will vote for the creation of the Parque de la Vida, near the Zoo, she believes that it is a point of distraction to prevent young people from spending their time in gangs or drug addiction.
