THE WORKS OF PUNTA NADALA SQUARE IN PALMANOVA WILL BEGIN IN NOVEMBER AND WILL COVER THE REFURBISHMENT OF THE PUBLIC SPACE
A neighbourhood works monitoring Commission has been created
Calvià Town Hall summoned neighbours, merchants and businesspeople of Palmanova yesterday afternoon to present them the refurbishment proposal for Nadala square, located between Punta Nadala and Duc d'Estremera streets.
The mayor of Calvià, Alfonso Rodríguez Badal, the councillor of Palmanova, Francisca Muñoz, and the technical director of Roads and Works of Calvià Town Hall explained the proposal, which is in its last bidding phase, about to be awarded, to renew a place that has not undergone any improvement for about twenty years and in which an action by Calvià 2000 will also be undertaken, replacing the conduction of wastewater supply and the implementation of the regenerated water system for the irrigation of the whole square.
The proposal, whose total investment amounts to 783,000 euros, consists of a comprehensive renewal of the square, with paving changes in the area of palm trees (which will not be touched), as well as in the rest of the square. In addition, the lampposts and benches will be changed and picnic tables and benches, adapted for people with reduced mobility, will be placed. On the other hand, the children's playing area will be renewed by replacing the sand pavement with rubber pavement, with a shaded area, in addition, a calisthenics zone will be installed. The proposal also includes the creation of a dog park that will be separated from the square area through a perimeter security fence that will be protected by a plant wall.
As it has been done with previous works of the municipality, a neighbourhood works monitoring Commission is created, which, in addition, will actively participate in decision-making, regardless of technical and safety issues, such as choosing the texture, colour and drawing of the square's pavement; the calisthenics elements, and the furniture that will be renewed, amongst other aspects that were discussed at the meeting.
Works are scheduled to begin in November, with an execution period of 4 months.
