Blue Zones Operatives

You might have thought that this Semana Santa would be different, and it will be, except in one way; the Blue Zones will be open for business as usual.

ALM Velilla Blue ZonesThe Town Hall happilly informed that from Friday the 26th until Sunday the 4th of April Blue Zones along the paseos of Almuñécar and Motril will be in place between 11.00h to 15.00h and from 19.00h to 22.00h.

Editorial comment: what justification can there be? Originally, it was to stop people throwing a tarp over the vehicle and leaving it parked up all Easter or summer, but that ‘reason’ is obsolete because nobody can afford to stay that long anymore.

This Easter, local businesses are desperate for trade, so let’s just fine visitors over parking to discourage them. Where are the damned eye-rolling emojis when you need them!

    Since the lockdowns it has made Almunecar even more beautiful with reducing the noise and traffic. I think the town should simply try a closure of traffic to the town center except for deliveries of goods to businesses. This would increase some taxi business but also reduce incidents and noise so people can walk around and really enjoy our beautiful city. Just one day that’s all, a test to see if locals appreciate the reduction.
    I would also suggest a dimming of the lampposts to allow for better viewing of the night sky. It’s been done elsewhere where they replace the light bulbs with a less intense white light more of a dull yellow, thus providing light but not ruining a chance to gaze at the stars.
