SAN BENIGNO CANAVESE
The green area in front of the Teresa Belloc nursery was the object of interest during the last town hall. The motion presented by the minority group Civic became the center of attention. “This is a very popular meeting point for families with children of preschool age (0-5 years) – explain the minority councilors – and presents some critical issues on which we believe that municipal technicians should do an inspection to verify the status of maintenance. and security measures ”. Among the critical points are the presence of holes in the ground that were probably created by the removal of poles or gymnastic game material, the presence of remains of tree cuts that have left large openings in the ground, the rocking carousel, capable of injuring or at least pinching the users by the moving and / or poorly anchored parts and the presence of concrete slab, residue from the base of an old gymnastics equipment. “In general, the cleanliness of the area is very often approximate – they add – the garbage collection containers are frequently overcrowded and have been vandalized several times.”
They also propose the construction of a path that connects the entrance to the school with the tree-lined avenue in frieze in via San Giovanni Bosco, the construction of a network with a security gate to perimeter a limited area as indicated indicatively in the annex. located in the area close to the games, which allows the free use of the park by the youngest children and which can be easily removed to allow the holding of public events and the relocation of the other “games” present within this delimitation with maintenance and / or replacement of dangerous parts and the possible creation, where appropriate, of a specific anti-shock flooring
The motion, however, saw a majority against. Councilor Luigi Serra specified that the monitoring is carried out constantly and that the technicians will carry out a new control. “This area – he noted – has never been identified as a playground. The presence of some play equipment had been a response from the administration to the requests of some parents of the kindergarten children. “We do not consider it necessary – adds Serra – to cross the area, since asylum users who arrive on foot from the city center can safely pass through the pavement of via Einaudi to become via Matteotti. While those arriving by car go through the same Via Matteotti to continue along Via De Gasperi avoiding the congestion of the car park in front of Villa Goffi ». As for vandalism, Serra maintains that it is linked to the lack of civic sense of a certain user. “The administrator proposes actions and initiatives, but it must be remembered that the citizen must do his part by considering himself a co-owner of the public good, respecting it and stimulating its value.” –
