- "Unless the fencing and clean the environment, little else has been done," says the orange mayor, Ana Rama, who notes that "the latest news we have date of February 2018 at which the local government said that the new signage, replanting with native vegetation, and various promotion campaigns would see the light imminently, but four months later we know nothing of all these actions ".
Citizens will again request explanations from the Government of Cartagena for the promised Master Plan for the Roman Canteras deposit.
The mayor of the orange training, Ana Rama, recalled that this project was announced in December 2016 and that in June 2017, the councilor of MC, Ricardo Segado, then a member of the Government team, "assured that the first phase of this project had already been undertaken, which was to determine the actions to be carried out in the coming years with the aim that Cartagena and visitors could enjoy the Roman quarries in all their splendor ".
In addition, the Department of Archaeological Heritage then undertook to develop an information and awareness campaign, which would include primary schools and neighborhood associations, with the intention of extending the respect for this monumental heritage.
In addition, the owners would be identified to deal with them the actions to be carried out.
"Unless the fenced and clean the environment, little else has been done," says Ana Rama who says that "the latest news we have is dated February 2018 when the local government said that the new signage, replanting with native vegetation, and various promotion campaigns would see the light imminently, but four months later we know nothing of all these actions ".
"In view of this silence and these unfulfilled promises, we are obliged to ask for explanations in the next ordinary Plenary Session," said Rama.
Citizens presented in 2016 in the Plenary a motion to convene a joint meeting between the Public Administrations, the associations and groups concerned, and the owners of the land where the Roman Quarries are located, in order to study the current state of the deposit and to agree on measures of restoration, rehabilitation and those that are necessary to guarantee the conservation and identity of said Property of Cultural Interest and thus promote its undoubted tourist attraction.
The motion was not approved and the councilor of the orange training recalls that to justify this rejection, the Government assured that it would be useless to go to the Autonomous Community, which would be a matter exclusively and exclusively managed by the local government, "but the results of this decision we all know, the environment of the Canteras Romanas, except for the minimum cleaning and maintenance work, continues practically the same as it was for decades, unused. "
"I do not think that is the way, because protecting and preserving this treasure will require, whether we want it or not, sooner or later, the collaboration of all, we can not go on our own," says Rama.
