The blue parking area op
The blue parking area in downtown Marigot is experienced from 1er March 2016. The first step is to experiment with this device, aimed at making parking in the city center more fluid. The population is invited to participate actively in the proper functioning of the blue zone, in order to optimize the sharing of parking spaces and facilitate access to shops and services.

The Blue Zone is above all a citizen's initiative. The community of Saint-Martin - Sustainable Development Pole chaired by the 1er Vice-President Guillaume Arnell - has chosen to launch the experimentation phase of the blue parking area in downtown Marigot, from 1er March 2016 . The month of March will mainly serve to distribute the parking disc to motorists and allow them time to familiarize themselves with the device.
Vice President Guillaume Arnell gave a press conference on Friday 26 February 2016 to announce the terms of the device and to invite the population to change its parking habits in the city center. The concept of sharing parking spaces is at the heart of this device to boost the economy of Marigot. The blue zone is the first concrete measure of the project to revitalize downtown Marigot, initiated by the Community in 2014.
The experimental phase which will last until the end of May 2016 will allow motorists to obtain the parking disk from the services of the Community in Marigot and to familiarize themselves with the operation of the blue zone.

With the blue zone, motorists are encouraged to respect a limited free parking area in the heart of the city in order to favor the fluidity of parking, as is done in many French cities. Thus, tourists and people needing access to administrative services or running a race will be able to park more easily. The authorized parking time is one hour and thirty minutes. Vice President Arnell invites the population to respect the blue zone and to accompany the community so that this economic and citizen project is a success for all.

The cost of traveling and transporting the impounded animal will then be borne by the offender.

Park on the outskirts of the Blue Zone

The organization of parking in the car parks on the outskirts of the city center of Marigot helps to optimize the parking in blue zone of tourists and people wanting to access the shops and services. For example, the car parks of Bellevue, Morne Rond (between Marigot and Sandy Ground) and Galisbay on the waterfront can be used by motorists to park their vehicles outside the blue zone.

7h - 19h: Free shuttle between the city center and the Galisbay car park
A free shuttle will connect the Galisbay car park to the roundabout on the market, from 7h to 19h, Monday to Saturday (except on Sundays and public holidays). Departure of the shuttles every 10 minutes.

The community encourages people working in downtown Marigot to park in the Galisbay parking lot and use the shuttle to access their workplace. The Territorial Police will ensure regular surveillance of the Galisbay car park.

The Community of Saint-Martin thanks you for your active participation in the success of this parking regulation system.
