This was revealed by the Director of Public Space of Ibagué, who highlighted the organization and order with which informal vendors worked.

Jhon Ferley Amaya, director of Espacio Público, reported that the number of permits granted for economic use increased by 169% compared to the previous year. This increase reflects better organization and a greater number of vendors who operated in a more orderly manner.

“In terms of permits issued by the Public Space election for economic use, we had an increase of 169% compared to the previous period in the number of permits issued. This translates into an exercise where there was better organization, there were more vendors, there was more use, but they were more organized.”said the Director of Public Space.

Amaya highlighted that security standards for permits and credentials were increased, which generated greater awareness among those who requested permits to formalize their occupations temporarily. The Public Space department attended all the events in the five economic development zones, including parades on Carrera Quinta and popular stages in the El Salado neighborhood.

In addition, the removal of informal vendors and free passage for pedestrians and visitors in places such as the Fairgrounds Coliseum and the sports park were guaranteed. In terms of control and surveillance, adulterated liquor items were seized and, through educational exercises, more than 200 units of prohibited confetti, foam and flour were collected.

“In terms of control and surveillance, some items, some adulterated alcohol products, were seized in commercial establishments, from the people to whom these items were going to end up, and it should also be said that voluntarily in pedagogical exercises by the Public Space Directorate, more than 200 units of confetti, foams and flours were collected, which were prohibited under decree 4.56 of June 11, 2024,” Amaya said.

In total, 706 permits were issued, of which 250 were for street vendors throughout the city and 221 for stationary vendors on Carrera Quinta. Two BAP zones for journalists and several BAP extensions throughout the city were also opened for the first time, contributing to the success of the 50th Colombian Folk Festival.

706 permits were issued within the five economic development zones, most of which correspond to street vendors, 250 for the entire city, stationary vendors on Carrera Quinta of the 332 spaces we had, we only authorized 221 for economic development, it is worth remembering that there was also a Public Space Directorate.”concluded the Director of Public Space of Ibagué.
