Astrid Zorzabalbere, Managing Director…
Astrid Zorzabalbere, general director of Hippocampus, then explained the role of this public institution which, in the logic of economic synergy, brings together the OCA, the Tourist Office and the event center.
“Testers must be allowed to be consumed on the spot. We need more distractions with the activities of mouths and brewers. We also need housing to accommodate the people who work here.”
Mayor Patrick Davet started the evening by addressing the public. “You are an asset to the city. She is rich because of you. “And making observations:” We must allow the Testers to consume on the spot. We need more distractions with the activities of mouths and brewers. We also need housing to house the people who work here. »
Making life easier for entrepreneurs
But the city councilor does not want housing at any price. He no longer wants La Teste to be “the town where you wiped your feet”. “I told some promoters it had to stop,” he reports.
“At La Testa, every other boss should retire in the next few years”
Then Thibault Tressieres, the city manager, who develops the missions of the OCA, took the floor. “The goal is to make life easier for economic actors, especially project promoters and business customers. At La Teste, one in two bosses is expected to retire in the next few years. »
It also aims to revitalize the city center and increase its economic attractiveness. As for the revitalization of the city center, it is planned to create commercial routes around two axes: from rue du port to avenue Jean-Hameau and from place Gambetta to the market. The spaces around the market should be redesigned and an aesthetic charter for commercial storefronts should be established. The municipality also wants to develop commercial and event activities, especially in the off-season.
Reconstruction of camps
Another major project is the development of commercial urbanism. As for the camps, they will be renewed from April to July 2023 in the same place, confirms the mayor and adds that they are necessary because “a camper is 70 euros per day, and 1 euro spent in the camp is 3 euros in the city.” They had to rebuild in the same place because there was no other. Everything was confidential”.
