Today, city crews are rushing to finish a major flood control project and citizen awareness campaign. And Tijuana's young and energetic mayor has much bigger plans: a $160-million development program that would attack the urban planning crisis exposed by last year's disastrous floods and reshape Mexico's sixth-largest city.

The mayor said Monday that he will ask Mexican federal police to join the investigation of last week's assassination of the city's police chief, which he said appears to be the work of organized crime. At an emergency meeting in which the City Council approved the designation of a former judge as the new chief of police, Mayor Hector Osuna Jaime said there has been little progress in the murder of Jose Federico Benitez Lopez and his bodyguard during a highway ambush Thursday night.

As emergency crews mopped up after a storm that killed four people, the city's new mayor called Wednesday for solutions to the causes of deadly flash floods: an inadequate sewer system and haphazard urbanization.

A coalition of shipping and freight concerns announced plans Friday for a $1-billion port on deserted seaside farmland about 150 miles south of Tijuana on the Baja peninsula. They hope to link the Mexican port to California with a new rail line connecting to the Imperial Valley and compete with the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports for a share of the multibillion-dollar West Coast shipping business.

President Ernesto Zedillo faced a potentially serious test of his promised new age of Mexican federalism Wednesday after more than a dozen key local and national officials from opposition and ruling parties rallied behind a renegade mayor jailed this week for violating federal law in asserting local sovereignty. The issue: international bridge tolls, and who has the right to the millions of dollars in revenue collected by Mexico each year at border crossings with the United States.

The Lomas Taurinas neighborhood sprawls across an urban canyon, a natural amphitheater that was the stage for the crime that changed Mexican history in March--and cast a shadow over the presidential election Sunday. Five months after an assassin emerged from a crowd in a dirt plaza here and gunned down ruling party presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio, Lomas Taurinas confronted history again.

Police on Friday arrested seven suspects in the assassination of the city's reformist police chief as investigators tried to determine whether his ambush was related to the murder last month of a presidential candidate or to escalating drug wars along the border. Police said Jose Federico Benitez Lopez, 42, director of the Tijuana municipal police, and his bodyguard were cut down by gunfire from two four-wheel-drive vehicles Thursday night along a busy Tijuana thoroughfare.
