Moving forward on sidewalk plans, drafting a new local development plan (plan local d’urbanisme), making Cannes the new outdoor sports capital, and more. 2016 will bring a lot of Cannois projects. These are the five projects to remember according to David Lisnard, Mayor of Cannes:
The second round of Suquet des Arts (local arts festival)
“It will be launched this year. We will develop 500 additional square meters on the artists’ residence location as well as the new exhibition room,” explains the mayor. Adding that the project will be “connected” to the ongoing work of embellishing the Suquet neighborhood, which recently started and will continue through 2017.
The beautification project between place Commandant-Maria and lycée Jules Ferry should be completed in a month and a half. “But we will continue with the rehabilitation of the Prado garden in 2016. Then we have plans to start work at the top of the boulevard towards Camp-Long. This project should be completed in 2019.”
“We plan to do a lot of work on the development of the public space. We would like to both embellish the path to the school, and improve security in the area by engaging in a fight against traffickers and incivility. We will then reorganize the youth policy in this neighborhood.”
“We will continue development work through 2017. The idea is to embellish the architectural heritage, to improve road safety, and to support commercial blocs. With maybe a Nationale 7 and a foreign cinema theme.”
“We are going to present a draft mandate to the municipal council. This project is a piece of the changing Saint-Louis-Petit-Juas and Broussailles neighborhoods, in which we have invested 2 million euros between 2015 and 2016. We are going to build a new facility at the elementary school. This will allow us to recover the land of the preschool for other projects addressing parking issues, ventilation of the area, and finally another project, related to the hospital. We have an idea about creating a new important service that will complete the chain of care.”
