The City Council does not rule out allowing parking only to residents in Baix la Mar

January 15 from 2021 - 12: 00

The Baix la Mar neighborhood could join that of les Roques and the Marina Alta square as the only residential areas of Dénia in which parking is only allowed to those people registered in the place. This was suggested in the last Neighborhood Council by the Department of Citizen Protection, offering residents to try this option that they do not rule out.

During the meeting, the Les Roques neighborhood association asked about the possibility of granting authorization to park to homeowners who are not registered in the neighborhood. An issue that, as the councilor indicated Javier Scotto, had already been discarded previously.

Based on this question, a dialogue on residential areas began. Currently, there are two in the city: les Roques and the Plaza de la Marina Alta. In this sense, it was indicated that the city council does not rule out calling a meeting with the residents of Baix la Mar, since this neighborhood has characteristics to be considered residential and it is necessary to talk with the residents to find the best solutions in parking in the neighborhood .

Neighbors raise concerns about new bus lines

The last meeting of the Neighborhood Council, a body for participation and consultation made up of political representatives and neighborhood associations, had as its main item on the agenda the presentation of the urban mobility draft by the Councilor for Citizen Protection, Javier Scotto, and the subsequent collection of proposals and suggestions from neighborhood representatives.

Scotto indicated that the preliminary project that has been on public display is the proposal of a company specialized in this type of study and that it is not the final project of the government team. However, it was decided to show the document to the public so that it can include modifications and improvements at the same level as the government team.

The second consideration was to highlight that, for the first time, the Dénia City Council will assume the cost and management of the urban bus lines, since until now the Generalitat Valenciana has done so.
Then he went on to explain the main characteristics of the company's proposal, such as the four already known lines of Marines, les Rotes y regional hospital and La Pedrera hospital. It also includes an extension of the frequency of the Marines line and a new circular line that will serve the urban area.

He commented that, although the company's proposal does not include a customer service It montgó, the government team intends to find a formula for the area, which will be studied to see the viability.

During question time, the president of the Montgó neighborhood association proposed some ideas to improve the service and changes in the routes to be able to serve some points of the neighborhood. He also indicated that his association will not give up requesting a transport service for Montgó like that of the other neighborhoods and has requested it in the allegations presented.

From Baix la Mar, explanations were requested about the convenience of the urban line entering the maritime station, to which the councilor explained the reasons that the company's technicians gave referring to the fact that there is a demand from travelers who need to go from the bus station to the maritime station. In addition, these entries to the port will coincide with the schedules of the ships.

The president of Faroleta-Diana highlighted the importance and need for this urban line and expressed his opinion that the bus would have to pass closer to the Health Center, which was picked up by the councilor with the commitment to study that possibility.

When he went to the point of questions and inquiries, the president of les Roques asked about the expansion of the Local Police staff, to which the councilor indicated that there was a forecast that in the summer of 2021 new agents could be incorporated and recover the ratio of staff that corresponds to him in Dénia by population.

    In this area, there are parking facilities that could be free for these residents and near this neighborhood, just opposite, going towards the port.
    There is no need to be allowed to park it in front of your front door, because for that very reason, they would fill with cars, pedestrian areas that are being built new and it is coming out of everyone's pocket.
    All or none. There can be no vehicles in these areas that must be pedestrian.
    They can put bike lanes, for electric wheelchairs, scooters, etc.
    and circulation either.
    ACROSS EUROPE, they are trying to recover the streets, as in the early twentieth century, that THERE WERE NO VEHICLES.
    Loading and unloading, two hours first thing in the morning and late at night if necessary, with time they will get used to it and at least, we will be able to recover what was ours and now it has stopped being ours.
    OUTSIDE CARS, for RESIDENTS the car parks that are already in operation, free and install more UNDERGROUND, in Joan Fuster instead of building buildings that cover the Montgo and on top of it PUBLIC PARKS, for when visitors come, they have enough places to park and be able to enter in the pedestrian center of the town, especially in the narrow streets and those that are being arranged to make them pedestrian, that IS NOT ALLOWED OR PARKING, OR CIRCULAR.
    The investment is made so that the pedestrian can walk without problems when the streets are clear. I repeat that with bikes, wheelchairs, cars, scooters, etc. there will be enough.
    Motor Vehicles, STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
    SO IT HAS TO BE OR IT WILL HAVE BEEN SERVED SO MANY WORKS AND SO MUCH EXPENSE. WE HAVE ALREADY GET USED TO NOT HAVING IT, because there is no more happening there, you cannot go back, because that would mean a DELAY AND NOT A PROGRESS,
    It even has to eliminate the circulation in the streets that cross Marqués de Campo.
    The town or urban area must be recovered as a pedestrian zone.
    In the immediate future, we will have more TOURISM, as happens in theme parks, pedestrians want spaces where we can walk relaxed and calm without having to be aware of whether they are going to cut us off or run over or pull our bags, etc. , whether they are cars, vans, trucks or motorcycles and you can live much more relaxed.
    Whoever doesn't like it, get used to it, we can't go backwards, we have to progress and progress is living without vehicles in the urban area.

    a greeting

      The city center is irreversibly moving towards pedestrianization. It does not matter if it is a large metropolis, a small city, a town or a village. The 21st century is the one that will recover the street for the people and will free us from the tyranny of the car.

      The municipalities that delay the measures will lose tourist attraction in favor of others that have been advanced. There is no way back.

      We'll see. I have a house in the area, which I use as a second home. I pay junk all year, whether or not I am. The IBI, and other municipal taxes. I will also have to be able to park near my house. What makes no sense is that I am given the same treatment as those who park next to my house, who leave their cars there to go to balearia, take the boat to the islands, and pick it up again in a week. It seems to me that it is unreasonable for me to be treated the same as the person in the example I have just given.
