Jean-Luc Rotureau pleads for cooperation between Angers and the Conseil général

Jean-Luc Rotureau has started to make audible his differen-ces with other candidates to the 2014 municipal elections. In a press conference on October 18th, he pointed out that the current economic diffiiculties will lead to postpone some important projects. He also found regrettable recent critics against the financial situation of Terra Botanica suggesting that a cooperation between the Conseil général de Maine-et-Loire, led by Christophe Béchu, candidate to Angers mayor office and that city, had to be implemented through the merger of their respective tourism departments.

On the same register, he explained that the most important facilities of Angers, stadiums, swimming pools, congress centre) should be transferred to Angers Loire Métropole, because they are used by Angers and surrounding cities' inhabitants.

Mr. Rotureau also unearthed an idea of which nobody spoke for years : the transfor-mation of the central post office in a commercial facility what could boost Angers downtown. He also proposed to purchase the Les Variétés cinema and use that place as an annexe to the current congress centre. About a new congress centre, the former deputy-mayor considers the economic situation is not favourable to its building, adding that the congress business is not as dynamic as it was. The field near the théâtre Le Quai, planned as the location for the facility, would be, in the meantime, simply developped as a public garden.

Jean-Luc Rotureau says he wants to stimulate a debate around these topics on which he will write to inhabitants within a month.
