Neophytos Charalambides took over as Deputy Mayor of Limassol for the next six months, until the end of the term of the current municipal council, setting as a goal the completion of the development works co-financed by the EU amounting to € 22 million in ongoing projects in the western districts. As he stated in "Entrepreneurial Limassol", he will work in unity within the Municipal Council, in order to achieve the goals that have been set.
Of the utmost importance for the new deputy mayor is the transformation of Limassol into a technology center in collaboration with university institutions, the upgrading of infrastructure and the fight against bureaucracy in the municipal machine. "My vision" pointed out Neophytos Charalambides "is the upgrading of the tourist product of Limassol, through the promotion of alternative forms of tourism, such as gastronomic, sports, walking and medical".
In addition to the European projects in the western districts, of the Municipality of Limassol, flood protection works are currently underway, while the creation of the first environmental neighborhood in Agios Spyridonas will begin very soon (the contracts have been signed).
The long-awaited renovation of the historic center of Agia Fyla is expected to begin with the new year, during the term of the next Municipal Council, despite the fact that the offers have already been announced. The same applies to the main works of upgrading the sports center of GSO and the creation in the area of the Museum of Sports History.
The new Municipal Council that will emerge from the municipal elections of next December, will implement projects planned for years, such as the Carnival Museum, the second and third phase of reconstruction of Agias Fylaxeos Avenue, the completion of the connection of the coastal road with Franklin Roosevelt and the construction of the Evagoras Lanitis Avenue in Ekali.
