One of the places frequented practically throughout the year is the "Plaza de la Balsa Vieja".

Neuralgic center of our urban center, a busy place for many inhabitants and a meeting point for Totanera society.

This place has been the subject of many actions by the City Council seeking and trying to improve the space. The central area of ​​the Plaza lacks shadows, in our opinion, it could be equipped with sail awnings that will alleviate the most aggressive hours of sun.

Also install planters with plants and trees that mitigate high temperatures.

This proposal can be extrapolated to other places and crowded places in our city.

Otherwise it would be possible to close the Constitution Square on weekends and holidays, giving way to a vehicle-free and walkable space for families, seniors, children, etc.

With these endowments we can alleviate the effects of summer burning of common and public spaces, frequented by most residents and visitors, enriching Totana's identity places with trees, streets and pedestrian plazas, areas for people, free of cars and vehicles.
