The Mayor within reachThe Mayor, Jaume Collboni, will once again be spending a few days in a different city district to get closer to local people in all of Barcelona’s neighbourhoods. The initiative gets under way from 3 to 5 October, when the district office in Sant Martí will be acting as the City Hall.
The idea of this programme is to get closer to citizens and engage more directly at a local level with organisations, commerce, facilities, public spaces, businesses, students, workers and all the city’s inhabitants and social bodies.
Over the coming days, besides holding the meetings by ordinary government bodies which are usually held at the City Hall in Pl. Sant Jaume and the usual office premises, the Mayor will have a specific agenda for engaging with people and organisations in the local area.
The Mayor in Sant Martí
The Mayor will be starting in the district of Sant Martí on 3, 4 and 5 October, with the following agenda to complement his usual activity:
- Tuesday, 3 October: the Mayor will spend the morning getting a close-up look at the day-to-day activity of the district office and the Citizen Help and Information Office. In the afternoon he will be visiting the start of work to enlarge the CAP Besòs and the Biblioteca del Besòs, at the site of the former Pere IV cinema.
- Wednesday and Thursday, Jaume Collboni will be meeting centenarian organisations in the district, visiting the Mercat del Clot, the Territorial Unit of the City Police in Sant Martí and the Catalan Basketball Federation, and also receiving local organisations. He will also be visiting the new centre for the Barcelona Institute for Audiovisual Techniques and Shows, and holding a meeting with women with significant social, business and private projects in the district, plus a visit to the Biblioteca Garcia Márquez and the city’s tribute to Francisco Ibañez, with the awarding of a posthumous cultural medal to the creator of Mortadelo i Filemón.
