This week, the Saint-Sébastien climb was partially closed to cars. Yasmine Bouagga welcomes this decision because the focus was “a black spot for pedestrians identified for a very long time”. “To cross, you had to go down the road”, explains the mayor of the 1st arrondissement.
According to the chosen ecologist, “The goal is to show that we walk faster”. “We are removing transit traffic, it is not service to Croix-Rousse. The inhabitants of Croix-Rousse acknowledge that they use the car very little on a daily basis because it is not convenient. Half of the households in the 1st arrondissement do not have a car”, she continues.
Yasmine Bouagga also mentioned the Greens’ project for the Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse and promises “quality renovation throughout the boulevard”.
She returned to the civilian occupation of squats on Place Chardonnet, a half-empty building open to unaccompanied minors. “The city is in the process of seeing with HCL whether we can provide shelter under decent conditions”.
At the Terreaux Gallery, which has been desperately empty for years, Yasmine Bouagga wants to develop a “economic activity aimed at a model that values know-how and material. A city of craftsmen and repairers”.
