THE dogs-allowed Benican zone adjoining the Foietes park has been extended to include a canine agility course. The Benican zone is now four times larger, after residents in the nearby Colonia Madrid requested that part of Benidorm’s 2020 Budget should be allocated to this.
Other suggestions are still being assessed, said Citizens’ Participation councillor Ana Pellicer at a working meeting held in Colonia Madrid just before inspecting work carried out there in recent months. Also present were Public Works councillor Jose Ramon Gonzalez de Zarate and Teresa Garrido and Manuel Sanchez Notario who were there to represent the neighbourhood’s Residents’ Associations.
“We implement everything the residents ask us to do,” De Zarate declared, detailing the work that has been carried out either by municipal employees or concessionary companies contracted by the town hall.
”The town hall solved problems caused by loose paving stones and cracks caused by the settling of an embankment in Foietes park as well as controlling traffic with speed bumps to ensure that children and their parents can walk safely to school.”
