The government agency SEMARNAT has been very active in the area recently. First they denied permission for the wind farm and now it is reported they have denied permission for a major development in the Punta Tormentos area. The airstrip was intended as the central part of the development which apparently included a golf course, hotel rooms , a shopping center and housing. Apparently the developers had tried to advance the project while attention was focused on the wind farm.
In my opinion, SEMARNAT is doing good work as of late.
