Didier Sarda, mayor of Talloires-Montmin and vice-president of active mobility, tourism and cycling territory is our guest on Sunday September 19, 2021 on our antenna.
Among the subjects discussed: The project of “Clos du Moine”. Didier Sarda is cash: “Faced with real estate pressure from the town hall will rent housing to locals. We need a medical home, a crèche or a home for childminders. The inhabitants have access to all the documents of the project on the site of the municipality. “
The mayor of Talloires assumes to have taken over the organization of a literary event in the town: LirÔlac: “Jean-Marie Gourio wanted the book festival to die with him. “
Didier Sarda also talks about the decision to pass the free municipal beaches this summer so that the health pass does not apply. “The buzz was not voluntary” entrusts the elected official who assures that he has not received any reproach from the State. Regarding paid parking, the mayor of Talloires-Montmin assumes that a day of paid parking is more expensive than a paid beach day before, explaining that parking meters bring less money to the town than beach entrances.
Also a restaurateur, the elected representative looks back on the season and the application of the sanitary pass, telling us that he saw young people with an elderly pass and served them.
The big part of the interview concerns mobility around the lake and in the agglomeration of Grand Annecy. Didier Sarda exclusively reveals the first figures for frequentation of Lake Annecy buses and “Vélonecy 60 minutes” self-service bicycles. 200,000 users took advantage of the lake buses this summer, compared to 47,000 in 2020. 94,000 on the west shore line (Sevrier, Saint-Jorioz, Duingt) and 104,000 on the east shore (Veyrier-du -Lac, Menthon-Saint-Bernard, Talloires-Montmin). The frequency of these buses had been doubled and the shuttles had become free. As for the fleet of 200 self-service bicycles: 30,000 locations were registered by 5,800 different users, for a total of 337,000 kilometers. The trips between Sevrier and Annecy and between Veyrier-du-Lac and Annecy being the most frequent.
“Vélonecy 60 minutes continues in Sevrier, Veyrier and Annecy after September 30” to complete the new frequencies of the region’s bus lines taken over by the Greater Annecy agglomeration and detailed by Didier Sarda.
And with regard to public transport on its own site, the vice-president of active mobility, tourism and cycling territory gives figures which argue that none of the 5 axes requires a tram in an essential way: “The BRT (Bus at High Level of Service in full clean site NDLR) is sufficient for the size of the agglomeration. “
