The "participatory democracy", an idea implemented for years in Angers, could meet in the days to come a special interest from the candi-dates to the 2014 muni-cipal elections. On November 26th, the 2nd edition of the annual conference about the "community urban management" will gather inhabitants and associations who, throughout the city, worked during the last 12 months about the ways to improve daily life in its different districts. The results of their meetings will give important indications about the wishes of inhabitants and voters. So the Angers mayor, Frédéric Béatse, will be present.

In each of the 10 Angers districts, people and local town councillors, among other participants, studied projects which had to be implemented and their results. The next meeting will especially look into the speed limit (30 km/h) which is compulsory to respect or the urban cleanliness and maybe the safety in town.

If economy and employment are at the top of priorities for inhabitants and candidates, the improvement of the daily life in town is something people care about. Group of inhabitants, and among them retail stores owners, complained about the conditions of streets and pavements, the nocturnal turmoil in streets of down town or the design of the Ralliement square. The New banks of Maine scheme confirmed the interest of people about their environment. That one is surely one of the assets Angers should rely on in order to increase its attractiveness.
