In the last plenary session of July, three motions presented by the Municipal Socialist Group were debated, to declare the well of snow a Site of Cultural Interest, about the competences in environmental evaluation and to elaborate a plan for the cultural reactivation in Caravaca de la Cruz .Enrique Fuentes shows his satisfaction, since the proposal carried out in full to declare the Nevazo snow well as of Cultural Interest went ahead unanimously."We have only one snow pit in Caravaca, whose antiquity dates back to the 17th century and is owned by the Autonomous Community.
Its historical importance has the same merit of being a cultural asset as the 28 wells in Sierra Espuña, which have recently have been declared a Site of Cultural Interest ", highlighted Fuentes.This declaration would guarantee the protection and conservation, as well as the installation of informative panels on the uses and history linked to the snow pit.For her part, the socialist councilor Reyes Aznar, urged the municipal government to launch a battery of measures for the cultural reactivation of Caravaca de la Cruz, with four important points:- The launch of the development of a catalog of local artists.- The commitment to execute the entire budget for culture and increase the budget for culture for the coming years.- The reprogramming of cultural activities suspended during the health crisis.- And finally, establish the book fair as an event of general interest, reschedule said event and maintain zero charge for book stands."Caravaca de la Cruz has all the requirements to become a cultural and artistic power.
Unfortunately today we are at the bottom of the towns in the Region of Murcia in terms of cultural matters," said the Socialist mayor.
.Aznar has pointed out that in the last year we have been observing with amazement and sadness how the cultural fabric of our municipality has been neglected and practically stopped.
From the socialist municipal group we reach out and offer support to contribute ideas in matters of cultural management that are so necessary for Caravaca de la Cruz.The municipal government voted against this motion, rejecting the battery of proposals that we presented.Lastly, the motion on environmental assessment competencies was debated, which the Autonomous Community intends to transfer to the City Councils."While a good part of the business world, the Government of Spain, the European Union and most of the Autonomous Communities seem to have understood that the economic recovery must be done without neglecting the environment, the Regional Government uses the coronavirus excuse to continue eliminating a substantial part of environmental controls, in order to favor certain private benefits to the detriment of the general interest ", Enrique Fuentes has emphasizedThe transfer to the municipalities of the powers in environmental evaluation of the plans, programs and projects that, until now, the Autonomous Community had been exercising, surprisingly is well seen by the PP-C´s Government in Caravaca, despite the economic burden that this measure will cause the consistory.Enrique Fuentes ended his intervention by stating that "both municipal groups made clear in the motion for debate their lack of environmental sensitivity and how little they care about the municipal economy of Caravaca de la Cruz."
