RIVIERA NAYARIT, MEXICO – April 22th, 2022 – DINE Punta Mita and PEACE Punta de Mita announce today a partnership agreement wherein the resort will donate the land required for PEACE’s Campus de Mita. Construction on major elements of the campus will begin later this year with groundbreaking estimated for early August. With the support of Punta Mita homeowners and other entities, PEACE Punta de Mita now has the resources to commence Phase 1 of the project. This multi-year agreement, three-phase build program, will start with the construction of the high school later this summer. To free up land, DINE will relocate parts of its construction offices and equipment yard that are adjacent to the middle school in Emiliano Zapata community near Punta Mita.
Further movement will be required as the project enters its final phase.
Alfredo Bonnin, Managing Dire ctor of DINE Punta Mita, commented, “DINE is delighted to provide the land for this worthwhile project that will benefit future generations of students who call Punta de Mita their home. We look forward to working with our partner PEACE on campus subsistence efforts as the three phases are completed.”
Ron Budacz, Chair of PEACE Punta de Mita, added, “The vision started more than three years ago and required the balancing of donors, design, partnerships, bids, and approvals in a reiterative manner to build trust and confidence. Once our stakeholders understood the need and benefit, not even COVID-19 stopped us. I extend my heartfelt thanks to DINE management for shifting these facilities while resort construction is at an all-time high. Soon we will see steel rise from the ground for the high school, and further fundraising will commence to make Phase II, the middle school refurbishment and a student sports center, a reality.”
Carl Emberson, DINE Punta Mita Director of Operations, mentioned, “Fundación DINE Punta Mita is committed to continuously supporting the project through its fundraising efforts in the years to come. In this manner we stand shoulder to shoulder with our partner, PEACE.”
