This Tuesday, September 14, the final phase of the voting of the projects submitted to the Participatory Budgets of the Generalitat has opened. The City Council of Dénia and the EATIM of Jesús Pobre joined the citizen initiative of the Association of Neighbors and Neighbors of Jesús Pobre, which presented to the call, within the regional projects (Central Regions), the purchase of the convent by Jesús Pobre.
The two city councils want to join the neighborhood proposal by disseminating the project and encouraging citizens to vote for the Generalitat to finance the acquisition with 1.500.000 euros.
The objective is to acquire this patrimonial asset, at this point of private ownership, to guarantee its protection and enhancement and its use open to the public and citizens of Jesús Pobre and the region as a cultural facility.
The property is original from the XNUMXth century and privately owned since the process of confiscation of the ecclesiastical assets of the s. XIX. At this moment the circumstance arises that the last owners, who have inhabited and conserved it for many years, have put it up for sale. "A historic opportunity to recover the convent and turn it into a regional cultural center", highlighted the mayor of EATIM, Javier Scotto.
The voting phase ends on September 30. You can vote by entering the GVA Participate page, being this is the direct link of the project .
