València, July 28, 2021.- The president of the Valencia Port Authority (APV), Aurelio Martínez and the new mayor of Gandia, José Manuel Prieto, met today at the APV headquarters in Valencia to establish the first contact of the new mayor with issues of maritime port interest and port-city relations. The Gandia City Council and the PAV have collaborated closely in recent years in the development of
cultural, mobility and access projects in the port area of ​​the capital of La Safor. Continuing with this line of joint work, Aurelio Martínez and José Manuel Prieto have agreed to translate common strategies, actions and projects for the port-city relationship in a collaboration agreement that serves as a roadmap for the work to be jointly developed. Among these projects is the remodeling of the Puerto-Grado citizen interactivity zone and the new uses of the fruit “sheds”. Both representatives have been very optimistic in the results of the ideas contest recently launched by the PAV that seeks to reinforce the use for the city of the sheds and the annexed area by proposing actions and activities that are capable of invigorating the area, respecting the fishing use and opening their participation to citizens. Specifically, the scope of action of the ideas contest is concentrated in two areas, one of them between the fruit stands from 5 to 17, and the space located between its south façade and the limit of the commercial port area, and between the façade north and the cliff. The other area includes the building and the Plaza de la Lonja, and the platform that is to the south of the church of Sant Nicolau. In addition to the President of the Port and the Mayor of Gandia, the meeting was attended by other members of the Valencia Port Authority: Néstor Martínez, deputy director of the general management and Carmen García, director of Territory Management; and on the part of the City Council of Gandia, Miquel Àngel Picornell, president of the District Board of the Degree and member of the Committee of the Port of Gandia, and Maite Alonso, head of the Mayor’s Office.
