It’s that time of year! With the advent of 2017 comes news of projects planned by the Monaco City Hall.
The Mayor, surrounded by several elected Municipal Councillors, recently spoke to the representatives of the Monegasque press, promising “good surprises” in the events to come in 2017. At the microphone, Georges Marsana stressed that “2016 was unusual. In the overwhelmed world around us, we had to adapt to certain constraints. Our services have been very reactive and imaginative in combining leisure and security. In 2017, this will not change and we must now consider and design events while taking into account the needed security measures”. Next, he detailed the exciting projects the City Hall will be working on in 2017.
A gym at the port
This is the flagship project: the creation, by the end of the year, of a municipal gym at the port, near the water sports stadium, to complement this sports complex. “We will propose a fully renovated room, featuring the best equipment, with programs adapted to athletes of all levels,” promised the Mayor, hoping that the project will “please many Monegasques and residents.” And the sports assistant, Jacques Pastor, added: “We will offer affordable rates, with excellent value for money.”
A new micro-nursery
This will be the third of its kind, established by early childhood services. The new organisation, planned for the “Villa Les Pins” building, on rue Honoré-Labande, should receive approximately 10 children in a few weeks’ time.
The return of fireworks
Postponed in 2016 after the attack on the Promenade des Anglais, the Pyromelodic Festival will be included in the programme of festivities for July and August. Prior to that, for the celebration of Sainte-Dévote, a fireworks display will light up the Monegasque sky on the evening of 26th of January.
Home delivery of evening meals
This service in place for Monegasque seniors at lunchtime will be expanded to include dinner. “Some beneficiaries had asked us for this service and we have worked with the hospital to respond favourably,” said Georges Marsan. At the same time, still for these beneficiaries, a courier service will be developed to help them in case they are in need of groceries.
Vital statistics online
This is one of the fulfilments of the administration’s digital development. In the near future, applications for civil status certificates can be made online, on the City Hall website. It is a “step forward for users” to which the Mayor is particularly attached.
In sum, for all ages and spanning many types of services, 2017 promises to be an excellent year of projects from Monaco City Hall.
