The Socialist Party of Alcoy has planned to allocate one million euros a year to improve the accessibility of the city.
The ruling socialists have commented that getting an Alcoy accessible to all citizens is one of its priority objectives, as can be seen with the investment made throughout this term and the forecast of the next four years, which will allow progress in the implementation of the Accessibility Plan approved by the City of Alcoy in a consensual manner.
This forecast, which has to allocate one million euros a year, so it will encourage the removal of architectural barriers to certain groups. In addition, the PSOE has commented that they will continue working “to demand that all the works that are carried out, that all the new constructions be accessible from the first moment.”
The group has also stated that, over the course of the legislature, more than two million euros have been allocated to actions within this Accessibility Plan. Among other things, they have claimed to have eliminated architectural barriers of streets, parks and public buildings, in addition to facilitating that deaf people can have access to tourist signage using the QR code with the necessary information.
The candidate for mayor of Alcoy by PSPV-PSOE, Antonio Francés, pointed out that “we work to have a city designed and made for people, accessible to all, we have come a long way, but we are aware that there is still much to be done.”
A prime example of this project is the elevators that are now being installed in the Amphitheatre in Zona Norte.
