The “Territories of the Future” will be a network of spaces to attract talent
It is the Center des Entrepreneurs de la rue Cid, the Coworking of “Vaillo space“, Le Lab Tossal, the business incubator”prince philippe», The future Seneca Ideas Gymnasium (in the old fire station on Calle Italia) and the Cigarreras. The bipartite intends to condition these six enclosures to accommodate the activities of the project, for which it has enabled a first set of only 240,000 euros in the budget of the Local Development Agency on a recent credit change.
The PP gave so much importance to the act that the mayor did not even attend
On the other hand, in a more ambitious action if possible, the municipal government intends to rehabilitate the old slaughterhouse of Aguamarga to include it also in the “Territorios Futura” network. This project would require a budget of more than five million, which the local executive intends to finance with European aid. The spaces are distributed, according to the president of the Local Development Agency and employment adviser, Husband Carmen from Spain, “As open places to undertake, innovate, train, interact and cooperate with other players in the new urban and digital economy, consolidating the ecosystems of entrepreneurship and innovation throughout our city.
The public presentation of the spaces that will host activities related to “Alicante Futura”, the digital strategy of the Alicante city hall, was not followed by the mayor, Luis Barcala, main support for the project. His absence took by surprise the municipal opposition en bloc (except Vox, who was not present), who hoped that the councilor, as he appeared in the program of the event, would be responsible for explaining the ” Future Territories Network ”. This task ultimately fell to the mayor of Spain.
One hour before the event at Puerta Ferrisa, Barcala was seen by the PP headquarters to participate in the vote to elect the party’s next regional president, where he shared conversations with Carlos mazon. City sources pointed out that in the end, the mayor’s agenda was changed. In the media agenda, yes, it never appeared.
Alicante Futura is up in smoke in the minds of Barcala, with a sad act as a government
His absence from the presentation of the spaces of “Alicante Futura” was criticized by the opposition, as well as the act for its content. Councilor Miguel Millana described the presentation of Red de Territorios Futura as another “smoke sale”. “In fact, the PP gave so much importance to this presentation that the mayor himself did not even attend, when his presence was announced,” he said. For the socialist, if the future of the city must depend on the “bad” presentation, the “situation is really pathetic”.
We expected more from this act, which like ‘Alicante Futura’ was soulless
For his part, for the spokesman of United We Can, Xavier López, “‘Alicante Futura’ continues to smoke the head of Barcala, with an act as sad as his government, which dispatched him in less than one half an hour “. Comprom spokesperson Natxo Bellido was shown on the line. He “positively appreciated that the City Council is moving forward in the innovation strategy”, even if he then underlined that it continues to wait “for actions to become facts, for example in the case of the former Abattoir project. and that there is real coordination with the Digital District and other public and private actors to generate a real city strategy ”.
