foto 2020 presentacio pressupostosLa presidenta del Consell de Formentera, Alejandra Ferrer; la vicepresidenta primera, Ana Juan; i el conseller d’Economia i Hisenda, Bartomeu Escandell, han presentat avui a la seu del Consell de Formentera els pressupostos de la institució per a l’any 2021. Els comptes del Consell de Formentera per a aquest 2021 pugen a 30.640.000€, és un 1,93% superiors als de 2020 que estaven xifrats en 30.060.000€.

La presidenta ha destacat que el pressupost del 2021 seguirà apostant, com ja s’ha fet al 2020, perquè ningú quedi enrere. “Seguim ajudant a les famílies de l’illa puguin continuar accedint als serveis gestionats pel Consell com escoleta, escola música o poliesportiu, així mateix bonificarem taxes als petits empresaris que ho necessitin i seguirem donant ajudes socials a les persones que més pateixen la crisi, com hem fet amb els vals d’alimentació i com farem amb les ajudes al lloguer”. Però Ferrer ha assegurat que es defensarà als més vulnerables “sense donar passes enrere respecte al nostre model d’illa, reactivant l’ economia amb inversions importants per la millora de les nostres infraestructures i pobles i com sempre sense oblidar la sostenibilitat mediambiental que des de fa anys defensam”.

Per la seva part, la vicepresidenta primera del Consell, Ana Juan, ha destacat, en primer lloc, la feina conjunta de PSOE i Gent per Formentera, que durant el 2020 el Consell “ha aconseguit adaptar els seus pressupostos a les necessitats i demandes de les persones” arran de la pandèmia “amb noves mesures i ajudes a treballadors, al lloguer i als col·lectius més vulnerables”. “Els pressuposts de 2021 continuaran amb aquesta línia iniciada enguany per mantenir i incrementar aquests serveis”, ha assenyalat Ana Juan.

Ajudes socials i empresarials
El conseller d’Economia i Hisenda ha detallat les característiques principals del pressupost del Consell de Formentera, entre les que ha destacat que “puja lleugerament respecte al de l’any 2020, els recursos es reorienten cap al manteniment de l’activitat i els ajuts a famílies i al sector productiu, incrementant els recursos en 736.500€ respecte de l’any 2019, el que significa una pujada del 55%”. D’altra banda ha explicat que puja el capítol d’inversió i de transferències corrents, baixen els ingressos corrents provinents de la Comunitat Autònoma, baixa l’Impost de Béns Immobles Urbans (IBI), i es segueix amb endeutament bancari zero.

Criteris d’inversió
El responsable d’Economia i Hisenda ha fet un repàs als criteris d’inversió que se seguiran durant aquest 2021. Per una banda es continuarà amb l’aposta per una illa sostenible, amb la recuperació d’espais naturals com s’Estany des Peix, la millora de la mobilitat sostenible i de la gestió de residus.

També ha explicat que es continuarà amb la millora dels pobles, amb projectes com la segona fase de la millora del nucli des Pujols amb la reforma de l’avinguda Miramar, vials d’accés de l’escola a Sant Ferran i de la Residència de Majors i Circuit saludable i Parc de Patinatge i usos esportius de Sant Francesc.

La conservació del patrimoni amb projectes com la rehabilitació de la casa de Can Ramon i el projecte de creació d’un nou Centre Cultural a l’actual escola de Sant Ferran, el foment de la participació ciutadana amb els pressupostos participatius del Consell d’Entitats són altres dels projectes que destaquen dins el comptes del 2021.

D’altra banda, també destaca dins el pressupost l’aposta per la gent major, gent jove i infants amb la posada en marxa de la primera residència per a la gent major, la posada en marxa de l’escoleta de Sant Ferran, i la construcció del Parc de patinatge i usos esportius i el nou parc infantil de Sant Ferran.

foto 2020 ple infanciaOn this, World Children’s Day (20 November), four members of the Formentera Youth Participatory Council joined young people from across the region for the ninth assembly of the Balearic Islands’ Youth Parliament. The session was held online and found participants sharing conclusions from work on the Sustainable Development Goals for health and the environment. Formentera’s representatives at the gathering included one child from CEIP Mestre Lluís Andreu, two from CEIP Sant Ferran and one from CEIP El Pilar.

Youth department councillor Vanessa Parellada sat for the session too, and highlighted participants’ unity behind measures to press government to keep working towards sustainability; build awareness around reducing consumption and waste, and invest in clean energy. Attendees agreed on the importance of potable water and using it responsibly, and called for a firm commitment to sustainable mobility, electric vehicles and cycling. Children in participatory councils across the region considered what life will be like ten years from now, imagining possible scenarios and weighing proposals for a sustainable route to 2030.

foto 2020 al nadal compra a casa 2Consell de Formentera deputy premiere and commerce councillor Ana Juan met today with Pimef Formentera chair Josep Mayans; local Chamber of Commerce envoy Juan Manuel Costa and Pimef director Lidia Álvarez to present an assortment of marketing campaigns lined up for the weeks ahead encouraging islanders to shop local this Christmas season.

‘This Christmas Buy Local’
New this winter is ‘Al Nadal Compra a Casa’, a Consell and Pimef initiative that will give four €1,000 prizes to local shoppers this Christmas. Special funding for the initiative was made available by the Balearic government’s 2020 ‘Cel Obert’ deal. In the words of Councillor Juan, “it’s about helping out Formentera businesses, particularly a year as tough as this one, and sweetening the deal for local shoppers while we’re at it”. She applauded the island’s retailers as well for their efforts to stay open and offer a safer shopping experience.

‘Compra a Casa’ cardholders who make purchases of at least €20 between 1 December and 6 January will be automatically entered in a drawing on 8 January. Winners will receive a voucher valid for 30 days from 11 January at participating businesses.

The Pimef chair applauded the Consell for “expanding their commitment” to Compra a Casa, calling the initiative “an efficient tool” and one that, given proper support, “will continue working very well”.

Lidia Álvarez highlighted the 32 establishments currently in Compra a Casa’s network of partner businesses and the 2,322 loyalty cards that have been issued since the initiative launched in 2016.

14th Christmas Shop-window Display Contest
Once again the island has begun gearing up for the Concurs d’Aparadorisme Nadalenc (Christmas Shop-window Display Contest), a Chamber of Commerce and Consell de Formentera initiative to foment a festive atmosphere among the local shops staying open this Christmas season. Registration ends 9 December and can be completed at the Chamber of Commerce (Avinguda 8 d’Agost, 6, Sant Francesc) or the Citizen Information Office (OAC). Winners will be announced 11 December and will receive, in addition to a commemorative plaque, €225 (first place), €150 (second place) and €75 (third place). According to Juan Manuel Costa, “Formentera businesses’ are a key part of life on the island, and this contest helps flesh out and enhance the kind of products on offer”.

Black Friday, 27 November
Another Consell-Pimef initiative that is associated with the loyalty programme is ‘Black Friday on Formentera’. All day long on 27 November, every purchase of €15 or more in participating businesses will automatically enter Compra a Casa cardholders to win a €50 gift-card. The winner will be announced Tuesday 1 December and can pick up their prize at Pimef offices.

Reusable bags
The commerce councillor also presented the newly designed reusable bags that play a key part in this year’s campaign. The bags feature the screen-printed slogans ‘Compra a casa, compra a Formentera’ (Shop local, shop on Formentera) and ‘El petit comerç ens fa grossos’ (Small business makes us big). A thousand bags will be distributed across island shops.

Formentera begins build of skating and fitness park

foto 2020 obres skate 1The Consell de Formentera announces that work will begin today, World Children’s Day, to build a 2,727-sq.-metre skate and fitness park along the Sant Francesc ring road. Construction is expected to be completed by mid-April.

The skate park will comprise one circuit for traditional skateboarding, one for “street” skating and another bowl-shaped structure. The space will also feature a fitness circuit for the elderly and green areas devoted to leisure. The project is expected to cost €482,723.

Youth services councillor Vanessa Parellada asserted that local youngsters not only widely supported the plans, but collaborated in their design too. “We’re thrilled to finally see the park get off the ground”, she said, enumerating perks like the park’s “snug fit into its surroundings, a walking path and universally accessibility. Our hope is that many different segments of the island will enjoy the space and interact here.”

Project
Infrastructure councillor Josep Marí gave details about the 285-sq.-metre fitness circuit for the elderly, which will include assorted exercise machines and a rest area.

Free of obstacles, the 255-sq.-metre traditional skate park will be bordered on all sides by low concrete barrier delimiting the skating area and doubling as a bench.

Approximating the kind of street furniture traditionally found in parks and public squares, a nearby 238-sq.-metre section will feature obstacles like ramps, benches, platforms, railings and steps that are typical to “street” skate parks. The concrete will be polished by craftsmen.

The star feature of the fitness area will a 617-sq.-metre “bowl” modality: a raised platform with swimming pool-shaped indentations of 2.5 to 3.75 metres deep and 2.4- to 3.3-metre radii. The “bowl” will be surrounded by a green garden area featuring shaded spaces, benches and a walking path.
