The rehabilitation project of the Plaza de la Patrona de Canarias, announced in 2011 by Ricardo Melchior and “kept in a drawer since 2015”, according to the mayor of Candelaria, Mari Brito, will be a reality before the end of next year, according to The municipal councilor announced yesterday during the last ordinary plenary session of Candelaria. “The project will cost 16 million euros, of which three will be used for sanitation in the area”, as the pipes that come from Punta Larga to the EBAR of San Blas pass through the square and will continue to the regional treatment plant in Arafo.
Mari Brito’s statement came before the approval, unanimously, of the City Council’s agreement with the Cabildo and the Insular Water Council to act in one of the phases of the sanitation network on the Paseo de San Blas and can be executed the project for the plaza once the Ciatf pipes have been completed.
However, it was warned that the entire project is at the expense, once a house next to the convent is expropriated, for Costas to give authorization to act and, in addition, legalize the emergency works carried out on the promenade in 2011, “a request which has been processed for two years ”, recalled the mayor. Likewise, he said, “we have to achieve with the plaza the environment that Candelaria and the entire Canary Islands deserve,” predicting that the works could begin in 2023.
The two councilors of Sí se Podemos did not attend the plenary session, due to illness, and another three did so electronically, two of them positive for COVID.
