It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Voters to decide fate of longtime
Colonos volunteer  Jorge Kaufer

His resignation sought by developer

By Staff
Chances are that if Colonos board Chairman Jorge Kaufer had slept later the morning of March 29, 2017, the call for his resignation would not be a topic in the approaching Dec. 9 General Assembly agenda.

That was the morning when the Colonos board members, after an earlier split vote in deference to the Fideicomiso’s prodding, agreed to prevent vehicles carrying customers to several commercial boating services from entering the resort, thus scuttling the businesses by depriving them of customers.

The strategy, approved by split vote after weeks of arguing between Fideicomiso Roman Rivera Torres and the Colonos board, backfired when the vehicles were refused entrance and their drivers declined Security requests to back away from the gates, effectively blocking the entrance to surprised regular traffic.

Strategy changed

That, recalled Kaufer,  a 10-year volunteer member on the Colonos board, was when his phone started ringing.  “Traffic was all the way past Chedraui and I started receiving calls at home from people complaining that employees couldn’t reach work and residents couldn’t get to their shopping.”

Pelican staff was on the scene as were a handful of reporters/photographers from local newspapers, a few lawyers, owners of the commercial boats involved in the conflict with marina ownership and some of their employees and clients. Waiting in the wings were the local police in the event of disorder and tow trucks awaiting  orders.

Two hours into the impasse, Kaufer said, Colonos board members who voted for the blockade in the split vote were supposed to monitor the situation but were nowhere to be seen, having “changed their strategy the night before,” he said.

Violence feared    

Fearing an outbreak of violence and excessive disruption of the normal gate activity of blameless residents, Kaufer said he went to the gate and found that “none of the strategies and agreements promised were taking place. I decided to end the blockade that, from my point of view, was close to becoming violent and was harming more people than the one it was helping.”

Prior to the failed blockade, he said, many meetings, some attended by lawyers, did not convince several board members, including himself, of the intent of the bylaw upon which the blockade was predicated.

The by-law is vague

The by-law, Article 18, declares: “Entry to the development is restricted to colonists, owners of real estate within it, or people with proper authorization.” And therein lies part of the current controversy: The article is wide open to a multitude of contradictory interpretations.

In its basic premise, the Fideicomiso interprets the rule as a protective tool to be used by a given stakeholder/business – the marina in this case – against another private business and assist one side to the detriment  of the other.

Kaufer and several board members on the minority side of the split vote to block access, disagree with that interpretation and have one of their own, simply, the bylaw does not intend for Colonos funds and gate access to be manipulated with prejudice to settle private business conflicts among stakeholders.

Since Kaufer’s unilateral decision to unblock the gate on March 29 in defiance of the split-vote majority – for which he takes full responsibility – the Fideicomiso, who is also president of the Colonos Vigilance Committee, has petitioned for the resignations of Kaufer, an elected Colonos official, and Armando Rincon, who is hired by the board as general manager and not subject to voter action. The Fideicomiso alleges a general dereliction of duty and erosion of security as causes for dismissal. (See following story)

Voters face decisions

In their split vote, Kaufer said, the board members tried “to avoid the imminent break between the Fideicomiso and Colonos if we didn’t comply.” Kaufer has told the Pelican he does not intend or want to resign, but will abide by the wishes of the voters.

Rivera Torres, who clearly sees Article 18 in a different light, has told the Colonos he will take control of the main gate operation in April, 2018, if not sooner, for a period of three months and fix what he claims are general and specific security problems. That would include, he told the Pelican recently, blocking the main gate to at least one of the boating businesses with which he is in conflict, then return the gate operations to the Colonos.

The Colonos accepts that the Fideicomiso owns the main-gate structure. However, all security equipment, motorcycles, cars, videocams and payroll were and are funded and owned by the Colonos Homeowners Association. Ownership of the roads leading to, from and under the building is currently claimed by the Fideicomiso, but is in contention.

Say or no say

The main gate is the first line of defense in Puerto Aventuras and assembly voters have a clesr choice at the Dec. 9 general assembly concerning its operations.

One prevailing consensus among voters, who fund the gate operations and improvements, is that they  pay for a say on how the gate is administered. They do this by virtue of voting for Colonosits leaders and their policies and also by petition for satisfaction of grievances, if any. The Colonos board is answerable to them, unlike the developer who is not answerable to the voters or their petitions.

Voters will be asked on Dec. 9 to select their preference by either voting for retention of Kaufer and current gate policies  or the  Fideicomiso’s bid for Kaufer’s dismissal.

Developer faults Colonos
board for resort’s malaise

By Staff
Developer Roman Rivera Torres has been accorded time at the Dec. 9 assembly and space in the annual report to explain why he feels Colonos board Chairman Jorge Kaufer should be voted out of office.

In a postscript to the Vigilance Committee’s annual financial report, the developer cites, in particular, Kaufer’s action of March 29, 2017 in unilaterally ending a blockade gone awry at the main gate in disregard of a contrary board vote. In this circumstance, Kaufer said, he saw the blockade devolve into an emergency situation requiring an immediate decision to open the gates to traffic.

The developer also charges that Kaufer and the board are withholding $200,000 USD in gate improvement funds that were appropriated by the last assembly.

Kaufer has previously explained that action was taken to safeguard homeowner funds after the developer warned he would take control of the gate and declined to sign a 10-year agreement on gate control in return for using the public funds on a private building without long-term guarantees.

In other charges, the developer faults the Colonos for not helping the marina block 3,000  clients a month of marine services with whom the marina is in dispute; not prematurely accepting Phase 4 into the association despite the developer’s offer to cover any deficits; allowing too many outsiders to the Fatima Bay beaches in summer, provoking a threat from condos and the Omni to possibly leave the association; improper performance in the matter of enforcing zoning; lack of enforcement in traffic and speed control, noise limits and hours of commercial operations.

It should be noted the postscript is signed by Arq. Roman Rivera Torres, the developer, and Timothy Howard of the vigilance committee. Howard has noted in the financial report that he “does not specifically endorse these comments” in the postscript. What will matter on Dec. 9 is what the majority of voters endorse.

Leave ‘Christ’ in ‘Christmas’

Dear Editor:
I am deeply offended at The Colonos’ use of the term “X-mas”.  This is not a suitable abbreviation for the word “Christmas”.  You should not be censoring the “Christ” in Christmas, especially during the Christmas season.  Mexico is 98% Catholic.  Whose decision was it to omit Christ from Christmas in this edition of The Pelican Press?  Shame on you! Please publish this statement and change your policy as your action offends many Christians in our Community.

Signed/Jack Moore

(Ed. Note: Catholics make up 81 percent of the Mexican population as of 2010, not 98, according to a 2013 Pew Research report. If you are referring to the poster “Saturday in Puerto,” your complaint is misdirected since the poster was composed by and for the Colegio. Merry Christmas.)

Tunnel Vision…

Competing interests will vie
for votes at Dec. 9 Assembly

Undisclosed pact faces questioning
on plan to facilitate special access

By Staff
When the Pelican Free Press interviewed Taema Air park CEO Jean Damien de Terwagne last July via emails, he underscored that Taema Air Park and the Puerto Aventuras resort across the way were two “completely independent residential complexes.”

What he did not say was that nine months before the interview, in November 2016, he had signed an agreement that gave future residents of the air park unprecedented access to the PA resort’s facilities.

Also signing, it is now known, were PA developer Roman Rivera Torres, for the resort Fideicomiso, and Chairman Jorge Kaufer of the Colonos board. The previously undisclosed agreement has become a selling point that Taema salesmen enthusiastically share with potential air park lot buyers who are also interested in beach access and other amenities that grace the PA resort. The agreement has also become a bone of contention.

Curiosity sheds light

It was only after several curious Puerto Aventuras residents recently visited Taema’s sales office in Playa del Carmen that they shared with other residents their suspicion of some sort of concealed accommodation between the resort and air park  had transpired.

“When we asked about beach access,” said one couple, “we were told we could have access to the amenities of the (PA) resort for a nominal fee.”

The couple, who refused to be identified, were furious that such a possible invasion of the resort was in the offing, eroding the future degree of exclusivity and space they paid for and now enjoy, they said. Several other residents apparently conveyed similar visits and opinions to resident Angelo Mouzouropoulos.

Inquiries were made and, a few days later, on the night of a Question and Answer forum hosted by the Colegio for developer Rivera Torres, Mouzouropoulos divulged the existence of an agreement to an audience of some 70 people. He supported his revelation with a copy of the agreement signed on Nov. 16, 2016. Responding, Rivera Torres initially denied signing it but later in the evening acknowledged his endorsement on behalf of the Fideicomiso.

Whose idea was it?

Upon subsequent inquiries, Colonos Chairman Kaufer responded that Rivera Torres had first proposed a tunnel for auto traffic under Highway 307 from the air park gate to the edge of the resort’s proposed public park near Phase 4’s entrance on Puerto Aventuras Boulevard. (See rendering above)

That idea was rejected by the Colonos board, Kaufer said. It was later followed by another proposal from Rivera Torres to sell “passports” to residents of the air park for convenient access to the resort’s facilities and businesses. He sweetened the idea by suggesting an initiation fee of 15,000 pesos ($779 USD), then a yearly fee of 1,500 pesos ($77 USD), that the Colonos would keep, Kaufer said.

Contacted last week, Air Park CEO Terwagne said the agreement was drafted jointly by the PA developer and Taema, “in a gentlemanly, friendly, neighborly manner”. He said the agreement includes a “financial consideration,” upon which he did not elaborate, nor were those business details requested.

“We did not register anyone yet as we are under construction for the moment and won’t have any residents on site until next year,” he said. The park will have an estimated 888 living units. At two persons per unit, that is 1,776 people.

Colonos board voted to sign

Kaufer said while Rivera Torres signed for the Fideicomiso, he inked the pact after the board’s affirmative vote, to illustrate that “both powers inside Puerto worked together to give Taema more certainty,” to evidently use the agreement as part of its sales/marketing strategy that adds desired resort amenities to Taema’s beach-less development.

The potential negative impact of such an arrangement on the resort’s already straining infrastructure did not immediately register with Colonos board members, said Vigilance Committeeman Carlos Suarez. Neither, noted one of the couples who visited the Taema office, did the potential for eroding exclusivity and resort property values in the long term. Nor, they said, did questions about  mitigating infrastructure improvements to meet increased demand, particularly traffic and parking.

Vigilance committeeman Tim Howard was away when the passport vote was taken. He said last week that had he been present, he possibly could also have voted for it depending on the developer’s argument. But with the benefit of hindsight, he said “…increasing the attractiveness of properties sold outside of Puerto by granting their purchasers rights to enjoy the amenities of our community without having to buy property here …does not strike me as a good idea.”

Buy here to enjoy here

He said he remembers the earlier meeting when “ we (the Colonos board) said if people wished to enjoy the amenities of Puerto, they needed to buy here and pay the  Colonos fees.”

Several of the community’s movers and shakers said there has been unexpected population growth from flagrant abuse of single-family zoning laws. That situation compounds traffic and parking woes via unexpected population from rentals of rooms or adding illegal apartments to family homes with impunity. It is a subject expected to be raised at the Dec, 9 Assembly by resident Octavio del Rio, who has become a one-man crusade for zoning enforcement.

Developer River Torres, who did not respond to a request for comment for this report, has been steadfast in his vision of Puerto Aventuras as an “exclusive” residential and tourist community. But in theory lately, the vision is not without contradictions in practice as pointed out by Mouzouropoulos at the recent forum.

Mouzouropoulos said he could not understand how the developer could criticize the Colonos board for its I.D. card policy at the main gate on the one hand and open the gate wide to residents of the air park development on the other. He has also questioned why a matter of such import was not first brought to the Assembly for debate.

Residents in general who bought here for exclusivity and security, as expressed by those who visited the Taema sale office, want to limit access to what the infrastructure and beach can reasonably handle. Businesses have expressed a desire to maintain a somewhat liberal access policy allowing a reasonable flow of customers, leaving open the question of what is reasonable?

Assembly voters representing the various opinions will debate and decide on December 9.

Still growing on the inside…

MULTIPLE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS are ongoing inside the community’s gate and many lots still for sale, assuring an incremental population growth from within adding to the estimated 120 condo complexes, some 400 private villas and more than 200 lots still available. (Staff Photos)

The Mail Bag…

Negotiate end to marina struggle 

Dear Editor:
It’s been almost a year now that the Marina and some boat owners have been incapable of reaching any kind of bilateral agreement. I think that it’s a very positive action what Mr. Angelo Mouzouropoulos is trying to do is a very positive step. (I refer to “Possible break in marina impasse may be offing” in the Pelican Free Press last week.)

I really hope he can reach an acceptable compromise, and I urge both the Marina and the boat owners to do their best so that they can solve their differences.

I’m sure that if a negotiation agreement is accomplished, the troubles between the Fideicomiso and the Board of Colonos will also diminish greatly and we will be able to solve many of our well-known struggles.

I really appreciate what Mr. Mouzouropoulos is doing and I want to publicly thank him because I know very few people are willing or able to spend their time working for a common interest that serves us all.

The Roundup…

We were told last year that the PA Chedraui was going to expand to meet the demand for space this year. However, we learned last week that the plan to enlarge won’t occur until next year, according to a retailer who has been waiting for retail space there for some time…

The gate access situation in PA may be somewhat unstable for the moment but in Paamul the practice of allowing visitors by trading an I.D. card at the gate for a temporary visitor’s pass has evidently been adopted. A resident there said it is the result of experiences “with some bad people” during the summer…

NORMAL TRAFFIC should return by next week just inside the main gate as workers complete road improvements. (Staff Photo)

Some area restaurants are no longer accepting credit card payments. A waiter at an area eatery shrugged when asked why, saying it’s because of the unfavorable exchange rate, adding that it was the boss’ idea. Bring cash too…

 Drug-sniffing dog at Cancun International Airport detected suspicious baggage last week and upon investigation, a cache of cocaine and hashish was found in the baggage headed for Manchester, England.

El Recodo Beach in Playa del Carmen suffered extensive beach erosion last week, causing tourist to leave the area for sandier ground despite efforts to stop the erosion with sandbags. The beach was cited by environmental agents doing a flyover recently as one area from Cancun to Akumal needing reclamation…

Hospiten hospital in Cancun was placed under police protection for a while last week after armed men intercepted a family traveling in a van on Huayacan Avenue. Attackers fired a machine gun during a chase to Bonampak Avenue after injuring the driver. The family escaped when a trailer truck separated the chase vehicle from its target and thr driver admitted tdo the hospital for treatment…

History of heroes – About 1,500 Puerto Aventuras students participated last Friday in a parade and ceremony honoring the heroes of the Mexican Revolution. The event was attended by municipal officials and the delegation’s representative…
