Next Monday the extraordinary sessions will begin to debate and vote on the different proposals submitted by the neighborhoods of Toledo for this 2022 to the participatory budgets of the City Council, from which the new 'street workout' space of Santa Bárbara was born, which has visited this Friday the mayor, Milagros Tolón.
Toulon has stressed that this "fun and sports" area located on an area of 150 square meters next to the neighborhood sports hall, which consists of 15 elements for the practice of calisthenics and which has involved an investment of 50,000 euros, was the result of a neighborhood request made within the participatory budgets.
The first mayor has highlighted the importance of this citizen participation through participatory budgets, which this year have increased their endowment from 500,000 to 585,000 euros and that allow residents of all neighborhoods to raise questions to the Consistory «that are necessary » and of which sometimes from the government team they are not aware.
Three requests have been made from the Santa Bárbara neighborhood, which have been consulted with the residents, as the spokesperson for the neighborhood neighborhood association, Carlos Rodríguez, has advanced, who recalled that the new 'street workout' was a request for a neighbor of the area and they supported it because they saw "something very good and necessary above all so that the youth has more things to do", hoping that now the installation "is enjoyed and respected".
The mayor of Toledo has stated that the City Council is "working equally in all neighborhoods", not only with these participatory budgets but with the different investments collected in the municipal accounts, especially to recover spaces that were damaged by DANA and by ' Filomena', like the Paseo de don Vicente in the neighbourhood, in whose reform almost one million euros will be invested.
Tolón, also accompanied by the mayor of Sports, Pablo García; the mayor of Education and Culture, Teo García, and the councilor for Parks and Gardens, Marta Medina, took advantage of this visit to see the renovated changing rooms of the neighborhood's summer pool, which will open on June 1 along with the other municipal pools .
