The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez has requested in writing to the Ministry of Housing, Public Works and Structuring of the Territory, in charge of the works of Foietes Park, the approval "for public use" the parking located in Mercasa and surrounding roads, and give them to the City Hall. The councilman for Works, José Ramón González de Zárate, explained that this request was made last Wednesday, September 7, in view of a report by the director of the work in which indicates that this parking area and road " meet the proper conditions of use and safety for entry into service. " Zárate clarified that works in the area could be carried out as "it is virtually complete except for some minor elements" such as the installation of furniture and gardening, whose placement will be made at the end of the work on the entire surface of the park. The councilor insisted that the "public interest" to bring into these spaces is "justified" by "the lack of parking for residents in Colonia Madrid", that since the construction of the park which began a year ago, they have been deprived of 350 parking spaces. Now, after the work, the number of places has grown and "would be near the 500". Zárate clarified that all these places "are free" and that these will be joined later to the projected ones in the rest of vials, and can be reached 900. In addition to the parking area, the councillor detailed it has also been asked the put into service of the last stretch of Capitán Cortés street, giving access to schools in the area and Ciudad Deportiva Guillermo Amor; the roundabout and the road next to José Llorca Linares social center that connect to the sports area; and running parallel to the residence for senior citizens. It is also expected to include the final walkway linking the district of Colonia Madrid with Foietes health center, Specialty Center the public school Ausiàs March. The councilman for Works is convinced that the Regional Government will accede to this request "before the end of September."
