For his wishes on Tuesday at the Hôtel de Ville, the former PS candidate for the Elysée Palace wanted to show, with humor, that the page of his failure in the presidential election (1,75%) had been turned: "the essential is to participate", "everything that does not kill us makes us stronger", she said, quoting Coubertin and Nietzsche.
Its rebound has a name: the Olympics, in the summer of 2024, are supposed to give a boost to all Parisian construction sites. Despite the deadline, some remain outstanding.
Town planning: new plan...
The beginning of the year should see the outcome of the negotiations, within the left majority, on the future PLU. There is a divergence between the communists, who want to be able to continue to build, and the ecologists, who wish to preserve unbuilt spaces and oppose densification.
For PCF housing assistant Ian Brossat, the PLU is an opportunity to create social housing through coercion, for new housing, new office buildings or those converted into housing.
The opponent Maud Gatel (MoDem) fears that "the obligation to devote part of the property as it is to housing" discourages owners and leads to a "devaluation of buildings".
"Paris will remain the most beautiful city in the world thanks to the urban planning projects that will see the light of day", promises Anne Hidalgo.
It will not be, in the immediate future, thanks to the "One" project which promised to vegetate and pedestrianize the majestic axis between Trocadéro and the Eiffel Tower. After the abandonment of the constructions at the foot of the Dame de Fer, faced with the excitement caused by the planned felling of around twenty trees, it is the opposition of the prefecture to the closing of certain routes which blocks .
The sites have therefore not started and "for the implementation before the Olympics, it seems difficult", admitted the assistant for urban planning Emmanuel Grégoire in December. “We will continue to fight” on this file, assured Anne Hidalgo on Tuesday, the City having appealed to the Court of Cassation.
In the east of Paris, the construction site of the Porte de Montreuil is also written in dotted lines, the ecologists refusing the project decided under the former term of office.
The repair of another door, that of La Chapelle where the Arena is being built, the only new equipment built intramuros for the Olympic Games, must however begin soon.
ZTL at least?
In the center, the implementation of the limited traffic zone (ZTL), aimed at prohibiting transit car traffic, had been postponed from 2022 to 2024. The prefecture released the handbrake, citing "strong reservations" .
Thursday, the mobility assistant (EELV) David Belliard told AFP that there would be "no new postponement: the ZTL will be done before the Olympics". But its perimeter "will partly depend on the police headquarters", he recognizes.
Bike paths are popular. In 2023, 45 new kilometers of tracks will see the light of day in Paris, said Anne Hidalgo, announcing "Olympists" to connect the sites of the Olympic Games.
First "urban forest"
During the 2020 campaign, Anne Hidalgo promised "small urban forests" behind the Opéra Garnier, Gare de Lyon and in front of the Hôtel de Ville. Exit the first two, faced with technical and budgetary constraints. The third remains under study.
On the other hand, that in the course of development place of Catalonia (XIVe) "will be inaugurated this year", while work will begin for another in the XXth arrondissement, according to Anne Hidalgo.
In 2022, the elected PS claims to have planted "18.000 trees around the ring road, 12.000 in the woods and 8.000 in our streets and gardens". A balance sheet regularly contested for its quantitative but not qualitative aspect.
"Anne Hidalgo cuts down more than 1.000 trees a year (...). The first ecological gesture is to preserve our trees, not to cut them down and replant them afterwards", lambasted the LR and related group on Twitter.
"We must give priority to the maintenance of the existing", abounds Maud Gatel (MoDem), approving on the other hand the "school streets" pedestrianized and vegetated. In 2023, Anne Hidalgo plans to build 20 new ones, to reach XNUMX by the end of her term.
