29 Sep 2014

RESULTS OF 'BEFORE I DIE' CAMPAIGN WILL BE DISCUSSED NEXT WEEK
At the end of July, a special blackboard was installed in the port area to record the wishes of passers-by under the theme "Before I die ..." which was to become the entry point for this special social campaign into the Comunidad Valenciana. Developed by Lifestrong Coachings, the wall invited people to stop for a moment and think about what they wanted to do with life and what their dream were. The campaign aims to improve communication between people who are aware of the transient nature of life and consequently wish to live their lives more thoroughly by considering their hopes and dreams as possible challenge. Now the results will be analysed in a special public meeting at the Biblioteca de Duanes - the port library - between 7.00pm and 8.30pm on Wednesday 1st October.

PARQUE NATURAL SIMPLIFIES PERMITS TO CUT DOWN BURNT TREES
The devastating forest fire that swept through hundreds of hectares of the Parque Natural del Montgó has brought to light a lack of communication between the managers of the natural zone and those who live within its boundaries. Mayor José Chulvi promised those residents of La Plana to mediate a meeting with the management as a necessary step to address the recovery of the damaged areas and the impending work that has to be performed for the optimal regeneration of the landscape and such an encounter took place today.

JAVEA DECLARES "EMERGENCY" TO KICK START LA PLANA RECOVERY WORK
Mayor José Chulvi has signed a resolution that declares that necessary work to prevent damage and ensure adequate recovery of the landscape after the September 11th fire be considered as "emergency" work. This procedure gives absolute priority to these tasks for which a budget of 116,973 euros has been allocated. Among the works to be covered by this project will be those to protect the soil and character of the forested areas including the removal of burned trees and those showing signs of infestation, the proper treatment of the surviving species, the encouragement of indigenous wildlife as well as the construction of anti-erosion barriers on the slopes. In addition, work will be carried out on the improvement of roads and tracks, the restoration of dykes and of the masonry of the terracing which are at risk of collapse.

IMPROVEMENT WORK TO AVDA AUGUST WILL COST LESS THAN EXPECTED
Back in the 1990s, the Avenida Augusta was planned to become an iconic axis of Jávea but it has become a rather unkempt scar running through the municipality. However, the road is going to look a lot better in a few months thanks to an investment from the Ayuntamiento de Xŕbia. Last April, it was announced that some 4 million euros was to be invested on an ambitious improvement plan which included, among other proposals, the development and landscaping of the middle stretch of this avenue. A tender process was implemented and the Tender Committee has awarded the contract for 300,000 euros less than orginally estimated.

Work brigades directed by the municipal Department of Environment have been clearing ravines and gullies close to urban areas in preparation for the arrival of the rainy season. Specifically, the teams have been clearing ravines between the urbanisations of Putxol and Cuesta San Antonio as well as those of La Corona and El Tossalet. In addition, they have cleared the ravine of Pinosol from Calle Francesc Gimeno to the Saladar and been clearing the Saladar itself. Finally, the brigades have been clearing all the ravines and gullies that drain the slopes of the Montgó which are known as "Les Barranqueres" and pass through the Camí Vell de Gata and the Carretera de Jesús Pobre on their way to the river Gorgos.

Residents of La Plana have met with Jávea mayor José Chulvi to express their concerns in the wake of the devastating fire of 11th/12th September which destroyed some 444 hectares of the Parque Natural del Montgó.

REGIONAL GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCES FIRST MEASURES FOR RECOVERY OF MONTGÓ
Jávea mayor José Chulvi and his counterpart in Dénia Ana Kringe met with Salomé Pradas, the director-general of the Generalitat's Department of Natural Environment, to hear details of the first report by the regional government's Ministry of Infrastructure, Planning and the Environment into the first measures that will be developed to restore the areas damaged by last week's fire in the Parque Natural del Montgó. She explained that the first actions were focusing on preventing soil erosion, especially as autumn tends to bring the high risk of heavy rainfall during the months of October and November with the ravines of Malonda and Loma de Castańar on the Dénia side and the area immediately above the port of Jávea and extending towards the snout of Cabo de San Antonio at most risk.

GENERALITAT CLAIMS JAVEA MAYOR JOSE CHULVI IS "NOT TELLING THE TRUTH"
Luis Santamaría, head of the regional government's Department of Interior and Justice, has accused Jávea mayor José Chulvi of showing "irresponsibility" by questioning the work of more than 400 fire-fighters based on the ground as well as 19 assets in the air who fought to extinguish the fire that affected much of the Parque Natural del Mongó between Jávea and Dénia. In a statement released by his department late on Wednesday evening in response to an extraordinary press conference in Jávea earlier in the day, Santamaría added that it was a mistake by the mayor to congratulate only the local units and said that he wanted to rectify that error by thanking the work of the pilots, brigades, environmental officers, fire-fighters and emergency technicians who were also in the zone battling the flames.

JAVEA CALLS FOR RESPONSIBILITY FOR NEGLECT DURING FIRE-FIGHTING
In the wake of the desolation of Cabo de San Antonio from fire which was only regarded as completely extinguished on Tuesday morning, mayor José Chulvi called an extraordinary press conference to give an official assessment of what he called "one of the most devastating [fires] in recent times and a lot more serious than we imagined". Flanked by Chief Police Inspector José Antonio Monfort of the Policia Local de Xŕbia and councillor Juan Ortolá who heads the Department for Public Safety, the mayor announced that he wanted to give a voice to the feeling in town on the the operation to extinguish the blaze on La Plana. He said: "Those of us who were on La Plana on Thursday night got the feeling that is now supported by reports from the Policia Local and the Department of the Environment that the area was abandoned to its fate by emergency services", adding that the fire-fighting task was more or less left in the hands of local units which consisted mostly of volunteers.

javeamigos.com | JAVEA - MONTGO FIRE 13 Sep 2014 

THE DAY MONTGÓ BURNED - FIRE DESTROYS ALMOST 450 HECTARES
It started as a plume of heavy black smoke piercing the deep blue afternoon sky above Jávea. Some 24 hours later, almost 450 hectares, the vast majority of which lays within the boundaries of the Parque Natural del Montgó, had been consumed by flames, leaving both Jávea and Dénia lamenting the scorched legacy of one of the fiercest infernos for some 15 years. It is an extraordinary disaster, both ecologically and economically that will be felt in the area for some time. The nature reserve of Cabo de San Antonio is one of the most important natural areas in the Spanish Mediterranean and mayor José Chulvi made no exaggeration when he considered the blaze to have been "a monumental disaster". Whilst there are many theories among the populations of both Jávea and Dénia as to the cause of the inferno, authorities say that it is too early to be sure what ignited the flames. However questions are already being asked as to how such an inferno can be prevented in the future.

THOMAS WANTS TO START SCHOOL - BUT NEEDS YOUR HELP
Nine weeks after he was born, Thomas contracted Sepsis, a potentially fatal whole-body inflammation caused by severe infection, and his mother Sarah was told that although he survived, he might never sit, stand or walk unaided, that he might never speak, see or hear again and that it was almost certain that he would need to attend a special needs school to be educated. Refusing to accept the prognosis and encouraged by a student doctor who suggested that the brain can repair itself through its plasticity, the family pulled themselves together to set out a three-year plan - to get Thomas well enough to attend a mainstream school with his sisters. However, funding is not available to pay for a classroom assistant and Sarah has set up a page to help raise the money to send her son to school.

After a week during which the controversial bulls event - 'bous al mar' - has taken centre stage, the celebrations of Mare de Déu de Loreto enter the final stretch with the hectic 'Day of the Peńas' on Friday, a day dedicated to the older generation on Saturday and then the solemnity of Sunday and Monday, days dedicated to the Santísimo Cristo del Mar and the Mare de Déu de Loreto respectively. And in place of the cancelled iconic firework display, the Fiesta Commission have arranged for an additional colourful mascletŕ display as a consolation to bring an end to this year's celebrations.
