the council of the wise hopes not in vain to floor

A council of elders only works well if the mayor is the bearer of the structure and the demands on it.

Hervé Valérian Bessac put it bluntly: “Our council is an organ of participatory democracy that carries out cooperative work. We want a step-by-step plan and a phasing to prevent that we work for nothing. A council of elders only works well if the mayor is the bearer of the structure and the demands on it. “And to want to get closer to the advice of the sages of the Agglo in Échillais, Saint-Laurent and Soubise, to intervene better on the scale of the area.

The social commission has already launched the prize for deserving young people, but is carrying out two other projects. First, it wants to launch intergenerational projects, in collaboration with the CCAS and the Aapiq. She also wants to create new play areas, especially for children with disabilities.


Here is the current view of the blind end of rue Audry-de-Puyravault and the projected view once opened.

COUNCIL OF ELDERS OF ROCHEFORT

The Tourism and Culture Committee has three pots on the fire. Firstly, it wants to encourage the creation of an association “L’outil en main”. Born in 1987, this concept aims to introduce children to handicrafts, by volunteers, craftsmen or retired craftsmen, using real tools in real workshops. An intergenerational practice that allows the elderly to pass on and perhaps the young to find a calling. The other dossier would be publishing a guidebook on Rochefort “because the paper supply for visitors is plentiful. It would be a guide of guides.” To do with the communication department and the tourist office. Finally, the Council of Elders wants to include Rochefort in genealogical tourist itineraries for Quebecers who come to seek their roots in the department. To do with the tourist office and the towns of La Rochelle and Brouage.

The architecture and heritage committee is concerned about the master plan for the station at the red stadium that will be presented at a public meeting (1). “We remain in the image of asphalt cities, we wonder if we can bring our reflection after this meeting. It is also linked to the Saint-Charles fountain, walled at the end of the rue Audry-de-Puyravault which ends in a dead end (Corderie side). “Behind this fountain there is a scene with the Charente and the admiral’s fountain, which we would like to open. Hervé Blanché, who agreed with the principle, had the work cost: 600,000 euros. “There are other priorities,” he says.

Green hydrogen power plant

The Commemorative Plaques Commission has made good progress with its inventory of all existing plaques in the city and as of 2020 there are 132 description sheets online on the Rochefort website. Now she would like to see an edited guide. Maybe the council can take care of that.

This plaque commemorating the deportees of the Paris Commune was placed a few years ago on the walls of the former Saint-Maurice prison.

Finally, the Economics and Development Committee looked at the energy transition for the next thirty years. It is in contact with the high school of Dassault to study the possibility of training leading to new professions. She also worked on the creation of a photovoltaic plant that would cover 10% of the city’s electricity consumption. And also about the creation of a green hydrogen production plant that can be used by manufacturers and buses “to prevent the release of carbon dioxide. Some advantages: attracting young people to this new sector; tourist tax; protect against the vagaries of oil prices; slow the rise of water and purify the air; arouse the curiosity of tourists a bit like at the lagoon station.

The Council of Elders considered the project at the former Tout-Vent landfill site, near the hospital. “Unfortunately, with the Coastal Act it is not possible to build in discontinuity of urbanization. It’s a pity, because your idea is virtuous. It’s annoying because the landfill is no longer useless, but I don’t despair,” explains the mayor.

Even if they don’t become reality right away, ideas inspire. “All reports have a purpose,” the mayor recalled. The wise take it for granted.
