Locals will have noticed work taking place on the Plaza Jabeque de Santa Adela. A total of 118,000 euros is being spent to give the square a children’s play park, as well as benches, a drinking fountain, and exercise equipment for the elderly. The park will be finished off with a surrounding fence and the seven lampposts renewed.
“When you’re dealing with important urban centre planning, with a 10m-euro budget attached, you have to know what you are doing, because it isn’t easy, said the Mayor, Carlos Rojas, adding, “this Town Council is demonstrating that it has muscle in these difficult times.”
To emphasise his point, he listed what has been carried out using European funds, such as the Centro de Salud and all the pathways in the Varadero area. “Now we’re working on Santa Adela, starting with this square and then we will commence on the Rambla de la Brujas pathways with a budget of 1.4m euros,” he said.
The Mayor went on to say that the Santa Adel and Varadero neighbourhoods are being transformed, thanks to the Urban Planning Office. He could have also mentioned, of course, that it’s also thanks to European funds, but it must have slipped his mind. The EU contributes 70% of the funds through the Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
