The remodeled plaza Juan Paredes de La Azohía, located next to the church, was inaugurated last Saturday, May 5, by the mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón, the councilors of Public Services, Juan Pedro Torralba, the Quality of Life and Welfare, Obdulia Gómez, and the councilor of the Municipal Corporation, Manuel Padín.
The works consisted in changing the image of the area with a new pavement, the construction of several planters and the placement of street furniture.
These new spaces for leisure and recreation, are compatible with the neighborhood parties that are being held in this space.
The City Council reduced the planters and expanded the paved area of â€‹â€‹the first project, at the request of the neighbors, so that it could host the festivities, such as the May Crosses with which the plaza was inaugurated.
"This square is a clear example of which neighbors and the City Council must work hand in hand to improve our municipality" with those words the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, addressed the neighbors.
"We knew how to listen to your requests when you demanded that we modify the initial project, which had been carried out without taking your demands into account, and we did it."
The works have cost more than 50,000 euros and have allowed neighbors to have a new meeting space that will enrich the social and cultural life of the coastal town.
It was an action of the Sustainable Investment Plan of the City of Cartagena (ISA), which includes actions for three million euros throughout the municipality, and which arose at the proposal of the president of the neighborhood council of La Azohía.
