The governor Axel Kicillof and the mayor Julio Alak Next Tuesday they will share a full agenda of announcements to The Silveramong which the work stands out through which the central city will be valued San Martin Plaza in the midst of growing tension with street vendors and street vendors.

The initiative is part of a slogan widely used in the campaign by the current communal chief, which was “making La Plata regain its shine.” In that framework, Alak will put emphasis on the reconditioning of the spaces located in the heart of the city and that are transcendental in the daily lives of many people of La Plata..

“Plaza San Martín is the most important in the province of Buenos Aires, since it is in front of the provincial political power, which is the Government and the Legislature,” the president had said after the opening ceremony of this year’s sessions, in March 2024.

As part of the agenda, Alak and Kicillof will also present the initiative in the Golden Room of the Municipal Palace, which will then be shown to the deliberative Council to be discussed at the next ordinary session.

According to Alak, Plaza San Martín will be completely remodeled

One of the central objectives of the initiative is directly related to the Dardo Rocha Passage, one of the most important buildings in the city, which – as announced – will also be renovated. “Therefore, we have three palaces that could be tourist attractions and in the middle there is a plaza that is absolutely destroyed,” said the Mayor.

What will the work on Plaza San Martín be like?

Alak already gave some details of what the Commune intends for the green space that is surrounded by streets 6 and 7 from 50 to 54. It will be a “uniform paving” that goes from Calle 6 to Calle 7, without a cordon, in the style of the shopping center on Calle 8 or like Calle 51, in the heart of La Plata Soho, where the street is the same height as the sidewalks

Currently in Plaza San Martín there is an intense commercial activity of manteros and the Commune would move towards a relocation.

It is a style similar to pedestrianization – although the crossings on 6th and 7th streets will not be pedestrian-, which seeks to highlight the importance of the three palaces that the city has and surround the square.

But The central objective highlighted by Alak is to “recover the space for the enjoyment of La Plata families”. This is complemented by other measures announced by the mayor in the message to the Council, aimed at resolving the conflict with the manteros who sell their products in the plazas.

In that sense, the objective is to move towards relocation and a solution with a social perspective. “Plazas and streets are not the place to carry out commerce, but many times, due to social needs, they have been used,” he explained.

Therefore, “what we want is to carry out a social plan, of relocation but also of assistance so that this activity can be carried out elsewhere.” In this context, in recent weeks there has been talk of a relocation to a property that is currently being analyzed. The measure, in any case, still generates resistance among street vendors and street vendors.

Priority works for La Plata

The remodeling of Plaza San Martín appeared at the top of the 50 priority works that Alak announced in his message at the beginning of the sessions. Giving priority to the enhancement of these squares comes from a conversation and request from Kicillof, where both agreed on the importance of keeping these two places in good condition, something that seemed to have been relegated in recent times. The presence of the governor in Tuesday’s announcements has to do with this.

Among those announcements, the future tender to remodel Plaza Italia was also mentioned. According to sources from the Municipality, 0221.com.ar, Both squares will be fenced, although they clarified that it will not be in its entirety and will be done by sectors.. At the same time, they clarified that the squares will not be closed and, once the works are completed, they will once again be open and free of movement.

Being in front of the Government, the state of Plaza San Martín is the one that has remained at the center of the scene on more than one occasion. The neglected gardens, the occupation of this space by the manteros, is also a cause of controversy and changed the appearance of the place.

Something similar happens with Plaza Italia, although a few blocks more secluded from the political venues, it presents an unpleasant panorama that has been perceived for several months by the people of La Plata who pass by on foot or on other means of transportation.
