The governor of the Miranda state, Héctor Rodríguez, and the mayor of the Sucre municipality, José Vicente Rangel Ávalos, inaugurated new public spaces in the historic center of Petare, on the occasion of its 400 years of foundation.
On this occasion the authorities delivered the Las Tunitas arch, located next to the Pérez de León I hospital; Plaza Bolívar Petare, at the top of the Great Wall of Petare; and a tourist boulevard on Las Flores street, where there is a viewpoint and a place will be installed for the sale of coffee, chocolate, Venezuelan sweets and other traditional foods.
The governor recalled that three years ago it was impossible to travel through these spaces, as they were invaded by mountains of garbage and workers from the informal economy.
"Thanks to joint work between the different levels of government and the support of the Popular Power, these spaces have been recovered for the enjoyment of the people," he said.
He said that these works have been carried out, despite the sanctions and the few resources they handle.
“The past administrations, both state and regional, destroyed everything and wasted budgets. We found public spaces in abandonment, damaged water distribution systems, as well as garbage collection equipment, municipal and regional police dismantled, but we have been recovering everything, to enforce the right that people have to live in dignified spaces ”, he assured.
He indicated that the transformation that took place in the ring and colonial zone of Petare will be carried out in each of the spaces and communities of the Sucre municipality.
For his part, Mayor José Vicente Rangel Ávalos assured that this project for the recovery of public spaces will be maintained and that it will be accompanied by a series of social policies to improve the quality of life of the people.
"The recovery of these spaces, for the enjoyment of the neighbors, has required hard, constant work, where the participation of the Popular Power has been decisive for the maintenance of all the works," he said.
Meanwhile, Olys Mora and María Bastida, residents of the area, were grateful for all the works carried out, the old town and the Petare vial and asked the authorities to support other communities so that they have the same benefits.
