Zoning is mixed Commercial – Residential:

The Mixed Zone: Residential – Commercial (ZMRC)

Article 19º-Definition: These are the spaces that concentrate most of the population and that present a mixed-use with commerce. The purpose of the ZMRC is to order urban development around the Historic Center Zone and the center of each district, to seek the best spatial integration, the best integration between residential use and commercial uses that are compatible with residential use. It allows, in conjunction with the Urban Expansion Zone, to consolidate and shape the existing and proposed urban quadrants and thus densify and concentrate space and population. The development of urbanization projects is not permitted in this zone.

All those uses which have not been included as permitted uses shall be non-permitted or prohibited uses.

Article 21

The permitted uses for the ZMRC shall comply with the following minimum regulations, without detriment to additional regulations that do not contradict those established in this article, which may be adopted by the DDU, via municipal agreement, for the purpose of enforcing the Regulatory Plan. Likewise, all specific regulations established in other laws and regulations in force must be applied.
