It should be noted that a few months ago parents denounced the construction of a casino on this site and warned of serious risks for children and young people, as it is only a few meters from Vista Hermosa Schools, Israelita de México, Hebrew School, Monte Sinai, Cumbres México Institute, Anahuac High School and Rosedal Vista Hermosa Institute. All these institutions located less than a kilometer away.
The parents expressed their disagreement with the risk represented by the fact that the office of the mayor of Cuajimalpa gave the authorization to install this type of business near schools, because the risk of young people going to this place is very open.
