Toulouse. It is the most active district after the consultation of the town hall: the ideas of the inhabitants
Through Anthony Assemat
Until September 30, 2021, the Toulouse city hall had set up a consultation for the ideas of residents to develop their neighborhoods. The consultation platform set up in and effect reported more than 1500 ideas.
Among these proposals, we find unusual ideas but also “classic” suggestions and especially those which make the most passionate debates between Toulouse as the improvement of the parking for motorized two-wheelers, the creation of cycle paths, the safety of the people. pedestrians and the greening of the city.
Shared gardens in the former Saint-Michel prison
The Saint-Michel / Busca / Saint-Agne / Empalot / Ile du Ramier sector is the one that made the most proposals during the consultation (131 to be exact). Among them, let us quote the proposal of Mazu to create an educational and fun garden in the gardens of the former Saint-Michel prison, or even the creation of shared gardens.
Christine tardy, she is campaigning for “a real urban farm, like in London.” It would not be a zoo, but a real farm with production in town of vegetables, fruits, eggs, honey, and why not dairy products ”.
Transformer Stadium Bridge
Paul C would readily imagine a major transformation of the Stadium bridge. “Let’s eliminate one of the two traffic lanes which do not add anything and transform this lane into a real bus lane. Let’s also create a real wider cycle path because today, the circulation between pedestrians and cyclists on this bridge has become too complicated ”.
Mick, for its part, wants to stop “the hourly tolling of the bells of the church of Sainte-Germaine, located avenue de l’URSS”, which “is added to the already existing noise (automobile and motorcycle traffic”).
E. Soulié want to use “this enormous concrete square of little use and which heats up quickly”. He designates by that the square of the Regional Council of Occitanie … His idea: “Plant trees there” or “organizer of temporary events”.
Place Lafourcade, important crossroads and meeting area between tram and metro, Matouk would welcome the installation of a drinking fountain. What about schools? To pay Mab, it is necessary “to plan to drop-off minutes at the foot of nurseries and schools”.
Insect hotel and moving garden
Finally, Héloïse could well imagine an insect hotel at the entrance of Niel, as well as a “moving garden along the railway line and the rectorate, to increase the knowledge of city dwellers in the functioning of urban ecosystems, plants, insects… This space could also accommodate the plantations of schoolchildren in the neighborhood ”.
A new consultation launched
Following this consultation, the Toulouse town hall launched a second one in the wake, on the theme of the identity of the city’s districts. It will last until November 13, 2021. “A team of mediating architects will travel through all the districts of Toulouse by bike, and will stop in various places – shopping places, parks, metro entrances, nurseries, schools, colleges, high schools or museums – to meet the inhabitants and their vision of what makes the identity of their district ”, indicates the Capitol.
The purpose of this consultation on the identity of neighborhoods? The drafting of a “guide to town planning and architecture for each sector of the city”, which “offers a framework for each new construction project”, concludes the town hall.
