Open letter to the mayor of Xàbia

November 29 from 2023 - 10: 04

The high-rise parking lot in front of the fish market seems to us to be a disastrous project for the port. The port neighborhood is a cul de sac and the location of the parking lot would work like a magnet that attracts all the traffic to the back of that parking lot. cul de sac, so each car and each motorcycle has to pass through the port streets twice, when entering and leaving (it would also be a highly coveted facility because you can park the car in the shade or protected from the rain).

And of course, in summer there would not be space for all the cars either, so most of them have to look for parking somewhere else – after having passed through the port twice.

The location of this parking lot also goes against the new Municipal Ordinance for Protection against Noise Pollution itself. Javea Town Hall, which says in Article 9 on the integration of noise in municipal environmental management:

"2. The criteria referred to in the previous paragraph (= noise reduction) will be applied, among others, in the following areas:
a) Urban planning in general.
b) The planning and design of circulation routes.
c) The organization and planning of traffic in general and urban public transport."

Everyone tries to keep vehicles out of urban centers and that location would push all drivers to drive through it twice, when they should be discouraged from doing so.

According to Google, it takes 9 minutes walking from the paved parking lot on Avenida del Puerto to La Cantina (market) and 13 minutes from C/Verona (Mesquides sports field), distances that can be walked without problems.

Apart from promoting mobility in public transport, which has to be the solution to the traffic problems in Xàbia, more parking could easily be created on C/Verona by bringing the bike lane and pedestrian walk closer to the river, behind the trees (which would also mean walking in the shade), and give the space gained to parking.

If a high-rise parking lot has to be built, it should be outside the core, for example where the one on Avenida del Puerto is now.

From Podem Xàbia we ask the mayor to revoke the decision to build a high-rise parking lot in front of the fish market.

We can Xàbia

    ELECTRIC BUSES THAT COVER THE ENTIRE MUNICIPALITY, DAY AND NIGHT.

    AND THE CARS WELL FAR FROM THE URBAN COUPLE.

    WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WRONG!!!

    LET'S NOT FOLLOW CHULVI'S INERTIA!!!!!!

    In my opinion it is an unnecessary project, with a terrible visual impact and on traffic in the port area. To reconsider…
    Greetings.

  3. Javier says:

    The project makes no sense, it is not understood who it benefits apart from someone who does not want to walk seven minutes and of course the contractors. For the rest, visual impact by placing a mass of cement in a charming seaport, as well as impact on the volume of traffic. In short, many lose due to the supposed advantage of very few. Please a little sanity and common sense.

    Won't a high-rise garage also block views? It looks like an incredible mess.

    It is unfortunate that the vast majority of people who suddenly enter politics are not informed by the most experienced technicians to avoid making decisions as disastrous as the one they announce to us. For once I agree and without serving as a precedent with the authors of the writing. Surely the MI City Council will consider making an investment of such magnitude in order to facilitate the invasion of vehicles in an area such as the port of Jávea for free, so that hikers and walkers can park their vehicles 300 meters from the Cabo San Antonio route . I wonder why in Jávea there is no Blue parking zone like anywhere else in the country. In Moraira? For example, there is a large free parking lot and the central part of the town with a Blue zone. What we cannot expect is to park our vehicles at the door of our own home and keep it for weeks, preventing a rotation that makes parking easier for other users. I hope that the new rulers rectify and do not allow themselves to be carried away by the negative inertia of those they have replaced.

    Totally agree; improvements in sewage, sidewalks, street lights... YES
    If we are going to sustainability, NO PARKING, much less inside…
    What clumsiness!!!

  7. Teresa says:

    The saying goes "you will change from a miller, but from a thief to another"
    Dirty streets, without lighting, sidewalks raised by roots...
    We complain and they tell us when we govern we will solve it and they govern and more of the same
    Painful

  8. Teresa says:

    Javea does not need high-rise parking, what it needs is cleaning, street lighting and returning to being the town it was.
    And above all, it needs a government team that cares about the citizens of Javea.
    It makes me very sad to see how such a beautiful town has become so degraded.

  9. Vicent says:

    Parking, of course, but at the entrance to the port, not inside.

    • Juan says:

      And what happens to the section of Avenida del Pla, between the Mas y Mas roundabout and the Consum roundabout, a street in the urban network of Jávea without lights, without sidewalks and a straight line where cars travel at more than 100 km /h.
      I have been asking for speed bumps on that stretch for years, the previous mayor Chulvi NI CASO. I told Rosa Cardona when she was in the opposition, she answered me kindly and personally that she would solve it if she became mayor. Well, now she is mayor and she does not answer my communications and DOES NOTHING LIKE EVERYONE.
      They come to power and forget everything they promised

    The Academy in the Pan-Hispanic Dictionary of Doubts accepts "parquin", with plural "cárquines", but recommends using "parking", "parking", "parqueo", etc., depending on the country. In any case, "parquin" is a place to park, even if it is not underground.
    How smart some of them are!!!

    I do not agree with the ideology of Podemos, but in this letter, it seems to me that they are more right than a saint.
    The word "parking" sounds terrible to me and if they wanted to Spanishize "Parking", I don't like it either, having a beautiful language, which calls it "parking."

    I allow myself the comment, because I imagine, it is not an error, since they will have reviewed the letter before presenting it and it will have passed through several eyes.

    If someone tells me they are in the RAE, I maintain the above. He does real damage to the eye. It is a very, very tacky modernity.

  14. Rachel says:

    What these people may say is totally irrelevant, as corroborated by the polls.

    The notoriety that this medium gives them escapes me, a curious fact.

    Otherwise, it seems that the weather is improving, even at this time, don't you think?

    Wherever you go in Javea there is so much traffic and little parking. I go on vacation to Nerja where it's a complete joy to walk around the center, shops, restaurants, beaches etc. It's all pedestrianized. It would be great if the second line of the Arenal was too. It's difficult to watch the traffic and the broken pavements at the same time. Looking forward to great improvements from the new council.

  16. Anonymous says:

    The word "parquin" does not exist, it is "parking" (in Spanish) or "parking" (in English).

    • Persona says:

      Well, the Rae admits it. Maybe you don't admit it?

      On the underlying issue: yet another attack on our marine environment.
      Take note of Moraira with large parking, auditorium, gardens, access. Here Chulvi only had the success of HIS career and salary.
