Information campaign on the occupation of the public domain

The public domain consists of all "non-appropriable property": roads, sidewalks, squares, gardens, open or closed spaces for public use. As such, the private occupation of the public domain, on a temporary basis, is subject to prior authorization and must be the subject of a request to the services of the Collectivity. Violators of these rules are liable to a fine of the 5th class, described in article R 116 -2 of the Highway Code:
The penalties for fines of the fifth class will be fined:
1 ° Without authorization, have encroached on the public road domain or carried out an act which is likely to affect the integrity of this area or its dependencies, as well as that of works, installations, plantations established in the said domain ;
2 ° Have stolen materials stored on public roads and their dependencies for road purposes;
3 ° Without prior authorization and in a manner not conforming to the destination of the public road domain, have occupied all or part of this area or its dependencies or have made deposits there;
4 ° Have permitted or spilled or thrown on public roads substances likely to interfere with public health or safety or to inconvenience the public;
5 ° In the absence of authorization, trees or hedges shall be established or allowed to grow within two meters of the boundary of the public road domain;
6 ° Without prior authorization, have carried out work on the public road domain;
7 ° Without permission, have dug a subterranean under the public road domain.
For example, the amount of the fine for contraventions of the 5 class is 1500 € at most, which can be increased to 3000 € in the event of a repeat offense where the Regulation so provides.

Recall parking area blue

The community of Saint-Martin reminds users that parking in downtown Marigot is governed by a blue zone, from Monday to Saturday from 8h to 18h. The purpose of the Blue Zone is to facilitate the rotation of vehicles and the sharing of parking spaces in the city center. The blue zone concerns the whole perimeter of the city center of Marigot and extends to the outsides of the city, on both sides of the Boulevard de France.

Panel P: The blue zone is indicated by a blue marking on the ground and by the installation of signs at the entrances and exits of the zone.

Handicapped or Reserved Places: Private parking spaces and reserved parking spaces (handicapped spaces, delivery areas, and places reserved for lenders) are not subject to the limited time parking of the blue zone.

Parking disks in the blue zone (1h30 permitted) are made available to the public at the Hôtel de la Collectivité in Marigot or at the territorial police station in Marigot and Grand Case.
The absence of a parking disk in the blue zone constitutes an offense punishable by a flat fine of 17 € and the removal of the vehicle by the prohibited parking pound. The territorial police are responsible for enforcing the current decree (No. 1034-2016).

Park on the outskirts of the Blue Zone

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 vehicle outside the blue zone. The Galisbay car park is served by a free shuttle bus between 7h and 19h, Monday to Friday.

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

Urban buses: Reminder of transport conditions in downtown Marigot

By-laws Nos. 100-2009 and 105-2010 and No. 1054-2016 regulate the traffic of public transport vehicles brought to pass through downtown Marigot. They indicate the streets and direction of traffic prohibited for passenger vehicles (not to be confused with tourist transport that have access to the entire territory, like taxis). The map (attached) of downtown Marigot clearly indicates the different possible routes.
The Community of Saint-Martin recalls here the instructions to be observed by the users and transporters in the matter of parking of the buses at the stops provided for this purpose.
A solemn reminder is given to the carriers and also to the users for the respect of the axis of the boulevard de France, which is the only authorized circuit to travel in direction of Sandy-Ground and Terres-Basses. People waiting for buses are called to wait in the bus shelters of the Boulevard de France, on the Front-de-Mer, and not at the corners of the streets of Liberty and President Kennedy, at the foot of the building Les Amandiers or in front Storefronts. The same applies at the corner of the Agrément roundabout and the Morne Valois road where stops and parking are prohibited. In the direction of Grand-Case, bus drivers and waiting passengers are invited to make use of the clearance (bus stop) before any roundabout.
For obvious rules of safety, it is imperative to use the bus stops and not to stop in the street and at every corner for the removal or loading of passengers. The adoption of civic and professional behavior by operators would contribute to a marked improvement in the flow of traffic in downtown Marigot and its surroundings and would avoid the traffic jams and constant discomfort caused to other motorists and road users .

Applicable regulations

In accordance with 518 of the Highway Code, bus drivers who operate public transit vehicles are required to stop at the stopping points for the removal and loading of passengers. This obligation is accompanied by a ban on stopping outside unauthorized stopping points. Carriers caught in violation will be prosecuted and arrested by the police.

The stopping points

Outside the space reserved for the Antoine GUMBS bus station, bus stops, with or without bus shelters, must be borrowed to remove and recover the passengers. Stop points are not parking areas. In the absence of passengers to drop off or retrieve, buses are not allowed to park in stops to wait for customers. This bad practice is very common at the bus stop of the Marina Royale, leaving Marigot.

The community of Saint-Martin invites bus drivers and their users to respect these safety instructions and thanks them for their understanding.

2016-06-19 Commemoration
Speech Father's Day 2016 ?? President Aline Hanson

Ladies and gentlemen of the Collective,
Ladies and gentlemen, representatives of the neighborhoods,
Ladies and gentlemen,

Hello everyone,

Welcome to this Father's Day ceremony, organized by the community of Saint-Martin, in partnership with the neighborhood councils.

Thank you all for being with us.

Celebrating family fathers always has a special connotation for us Saint-Martinois, because in our society more than elsewhere, the father is an essential link in education.

In today's St. Martin this balance is sometimes lacking, and we have too many single-parent families and mothers forced to raise their children alone.

That is why I would like to send a message to the fathers that it is never too late to take charge of your children's education and help them progress in life.
Recently, the community created the "School of Parents" within the framework of the Local Security and Prevention of Crime Council (CLSPD).

It is with this device to accompany the parents who have difficulties with their parental authority. We saw it again this week (armed robbery of Nettle Bay), certain delinquent acts committed by young people without benchmarks, cause trouble and gives a very negative image of St. Martin.

It is all together, at our respective levels, that we must act to stem the violence.

Fortunately we have in Saint-Martin very good fathers, who are involved within the family.

6 fathers who give a good education to their children.

I would like you to welcome:

- Mr. Dennys Leroy HYMAN, from District No. 1
- Mr. Léonard LARMONY from District No. 2
- Mr. Georges Apollinaire GOMBS from District No. 3
- Mr Jean Albert MINVILLE from District No. 4
- Mr. Laurent Joseph MINVILLE from District No. 5
- Mr Clément VAN HEYNINGEN from district No 6.

Today we are going to celebrate your commitment and your involvement in the education of your children.

You have a role model for them. Your children could count on their own life. This is precisely what our community needs to go forward.

I repeat often, a structured family setting, with a loving and caring mom and dad is the key to a successful education. I would add that the father's authority is fundamental because it is a landmark for the child.

Today it is you gentlemen who send a strong sign to all the other dads of St. Martin. I salute your commitment, happy father's day to all the fathers of saint-martin.
Thank you.

Celebrating Father's Day :

In partnership with neighborhood councils, six exemplary fathers were honored for their journey and the education given to their children by the Community of Saint Martin, in the presence of President Aline Hanson, Vice President Rosette Gumbs-Lake , the elected in charge of the Culture Rollande Questel, and the elected Jean-Philippe Richardson.

In her speech, the President spoke of the importance of the father in the family balance and recalled that it was never too late to get involved in the education of his children. She praised the worthwhile journey of these six fathers of family and wished a very good father's day to all the dads of St. Martin. The members of the Territorial Youth Council were present.
