Reviving Marigot - 2013-05-01

Revitalization of Marigot

Revitalizing Marigot The 2013 budget guidelines presented by the Community in the economic field will lead it to inject 5 and 6 M € into this sector this year and the revitalization of Marigot is a priority for the Community.

The city continues to desertify, the population goes shopping around Grand-Case or on the Dutch side and we no longer count the curtains definitely lowered in front of the shops of our "capital". The supply of commercial premises far outstrips demand, but the prices of rents remain high while activity is falling freely. There is an urgent need to react.

To this end, various actions will be carried out in partnership with the Tourist Office, the port, the CCISM, the neighborhood council and the merchants' association. It is programmed to:

> Set up paid parking in the city center and organize parking on the periphery;

> Encourage the owners of buildings in the city center to maintain their facades and renovate the premises, either through tax incentives - which could also be penalties - or by facilitating access to them;

> Improve signage;

> Renovate and reorganize the tourist market;

> Support activities to increase attendance in the city. Who will lead all these beautiful projects? The Community has decided to create a downtown manager position, whose role will be to devise a plan to boost trade by mobilizing public funds, but also with the merchants, the essential lever of the dynamism in this area to save a " emergency.
