How Did We Go from Crazy to Crazier?
Heads up, San Jose del Cabo residents! The Home Depot group is eyeing your city for their next store. While this sounds like great news for local shoppers and DIY enthusiasts, there’s a twist that’s raising quite a few eyebrows. The proposed location for this new store? None other than the infamous Fonatur roundabout. Yep, you read that right.
Now, anyone familiar with San Jose del Cabo knows that the Fonatur roundabout is, to put it mildly, a bit of a traffic nightmare. It’s probably the last place you’d think of for a major store, especially one as busy as Home Depot. And it seems like just about everyone and their dogs, agree. There’s a growing wave of opposition, and it’s not just from frustrated drivers.
The powerful Los Cabos Coordinating Council business group (CCC) has stepped into the fray. Their Executive President, Julio Castillo, has openly expressed the group’s serious concerns. They’re not just worried about increased traffic; there’s also the matter of the City government’s pending authorization for the project.
It’s a classic case of business development versus practical urban planning, and it looks like this debate is just getting started. Will the Home Depot plan go through, adding to the roundabout’s woes, or will the opposition lead to a rethink? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure – this is one hot topic in San Jose del Cabo right now!
