Territorial Archives - Climate Failure

Like the Médiathèque, the Territorial Archives suffer from a malfunction of the air conditioning system. The interventions carried out have shown the necessity of replacing a sensitive and high-tech defective part which is currently being manufactured. The general air-conditioning system has, moreover, shown regular failures; To find lasting solutions to these dysfunctions, the community decided to carry out a complete audit of the air conditioning system and the electrical system of the building.

Modification of Territorial Archives Mediation Activities

Until further notice, the conditions are not fulfilled for a good reception of the users during the conferences or workshops with the schoolchildren, these activities are deferred until the restoration of the air conditioning.

The Heritage Days (17 and 18 September 2016) in the Territorial Archives, where guided tours are offered to visit the archives and show exceptional documents entered during the year, are deferred and an event of this type will be organized later .

Opening of the research room: no change

The research room of the Territorial Archives remains open to the public at its usual schedules, from Monday to Friday from 9h to 13h.

The impact of air conditioning failure on the preservation of preserved archives lies in the access and communication of certain documents. In order to preserve the records of deterioration caused by climate change in shops (relative humidity and temperature), access to shops is prohibited in order to avoid sudden changes in storage conditions and to contain rising temperatures and The relative humidity in the air, factors of mold development, the consequences of which are irremediable on the legibility of the archives and the holding of the supports. Until further notice, only the registers of civil status are accessible to the communication. Genealogical research and birth certificates, for example, can be consulted in the research room of the Territorial Archives.

NB: It should be noted that there is no ideal temperature to respect. If standards have been laid down in recent years, it should also be borne in mind that these standards are reference standards with which to compose, in particular according to the chemical analysis of papers, inks, the external climate, pre-existing degradations of documents , Etc. These standards also apply to the northern European climate and hardly to the Caribbean climate. The relative humidity and the ideal storage temperature are therefore assessed with real expertise and archival professionals according to different criteria and by measuring the interactions between them (chemical in particular).

2016-09-15 Media library

The community of Saint-Martin informs the users of the multimedia library that, due to a general breakdown in the air-conditioning system, the opening hours have been set up until the completion of the repair work. A centerpiece of the central air conditioner must be replaced and manufactured outside the territory. The intervention period is set at 15 days.

In order to best meet the expectations of users in this particular context, the multimedia library is open to the public as follows:
- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 9h to 13h
- Wednesday: 9h to 15h
- Closed on Mondays.

The community of Saint-Martin apologizes for this inconvenience and thanks you for your understanding.

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.
