Maribel Sanchez Torregrosa (delegate of the Government of the Junta de Andalucia) and Rosa Maria Cano (mayor of Mojacar), presided over the Provincial Coordination Commission. This meeting is the third outside the Government Delegation to Almeria. Torregrosa spoke out about the efforts of the Board to address a historical demand, such as the construction of a Wastewater Treatment Plant, grouping of discharges and environmental restoration of the Aguas river. The new health center will be offered for tender in March. Delegates wanted to express gratitude to the City Council for hosting this meeting at Parador de Mojacar. They also assured that the goal of these meetings was to "bring the Government of Juanma Moreno near every corner of Andalusia, in this case Almeria, for the municipalist attitude that characterizes the Junta de Andalucia>>.
As Torregrosa assured, "the Board has made important investments in this municipality," as the Commission met. This includes the investment of 3.4million euros to build a new health center. On a plot measuring 9,196 square metres, the total built area will measure 2,398 meters. It is situated between Mojacar town center and Mojacar beach.
The delegation wanted to recognize "the commitment of Mojacar's Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development with two very important actions like the new WWTP and environmental restoration of Aguas River." The Board will make an historic investment of 23.7 million euros in purification. A construction project is being prepared for the group of discharges as well as the Mojacar WWTP. It will be used to purify the water of the Mojacar, Los Gallardos and Garrucha municipalities. It will replace obsolete facilities older than 25 years and adapt the purification to meet the needs of tourists.
Perhaps the most significant project to be undertaken at the level of the Andalusian intracommunity basins is the environmental restoration of Aguas. According to the delegate, the project has a budget amounting to 6 million euros. It is being carried out along 21.4 kilometers, starting in Giles and ending at the mouth of Mojacar's Mediterranean. This includes crossing the municipalities of Turre, Los Gallardos, Mojacar and Bedar. The restoration of the Aguas river is a combination of flood and flood protection, agricultural land protection and preservation of the environment. This action has already cost 3.1 million euro.
A bus interchange will be constructed on Avenida de Andalucia. This is a major project that has been completed following an agreement between Consistory, Almeria's Development Delegation and the General Directorate of Mobility of board. These facilities can stop up to four buses at once and will cost 686,300 euros from the Ministry of Public Works. Currently, this is the same issue.
Place your bet on tourism
Another concern of the Junta de Andalucia is the improvement of Mojacar's coast. The total amount of items executed amounts to nearly 500,000 Euros. This item is worth 396,545 Euros. It will be used to condition the infrastructure and provide the equipment necessary to make it more accessible. Also, the purchase of toilets, changing rooms, and replacement of walkways with concrete. The Ministry of Tourism has also allocated 18,000 euros for the creation of an interactive virtual world map, without the need to use a mobile app.
The Ministry of the Presidency developed the safe beaches plan in the summer 2020. 73,237 euro was spent to hire staff and materials to increase safety, including a quad, buggie, and pick-up. More than 82,000 euros were spent in the Air Plan to hire six people to maintain and clean public spaces and buildings. They also hired rural workers and improved sanitation.
Rosa Maria Cano was the mayor of Mojacar. She thanked her for being the location where the Commission of the Andalusian Gov delegates was held in Almeria, saying that it showed the Andalusian government's commitment towards my municipality. Cano listed the "works and projects that will soon be a reality" - Mojacar's historical needs. This will benefit the residents in Levante which has over 7,000 people but can quadruple it in summer.
