The municipality of Dénia has launched a process of public participation so that citizens are responsible for choosing the projects in which to allocate the funds of the Trust Plan of the Generalitat. In total, these funds amount to 8.158.896 euros, of which 287.310 euros will go to La Xara and 135.335 euros to Jesús Pobre.
The municipal government has compiled a list of 37 possible actions selected taking into account the parameters of the Local Action Plan of the 21 Agenda approved in 2009 and also following the principles of economic dynamism, urgency and public interest, as indicated by the mayor, Ana Kringe.
A new bus station; the redevelopment of Arxiduc Carles square, Sandunga and Fontanella streets, Camí del Cementeri or La Mar street; the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Diana and Joan Fuster streets or the adaptation of the industrial estate are other proposed actions.
