In Paceco the works for the recovery of the Saracen Tower of Nubia

In Paceco, the works to recover the Saracen Tower of Nubia will soon be able to begin and use it as a museum complex.

The planning office of the Sicilian Region has in fact prepared and transmitted to the administration the Environmental Impact Study which did not have the executive project. A deficit that has hitherto prevented access to community funding of 117 thousand euros for the execution of works which, considering the naturalistic constraints of the place (which falls within the “Saline di Trapani and Paceco” reserve), require the utmost caution.

«Our Structure – underlines the president of the Region, Nello Musumeci – expands its competences and also specializes in the elaboration of this type of documentation which is indispensable where it is necessary to intervene in protected areas of the island. We responded promptly to the Municipality’s request and, in less than a month, the technicians coordinated by the engineer Leonardo Santoro completed the study, sharing it with the environmental associations and regional institutions of the Environmental Department responsible for its approval ».

The reserve, in particular, is a true paradise for birdwatchers as it is home to pink flamingos, herons and storks, among others. This is why the Environmental Impact Study provides that the construction site does not have beams of lights that project upwards. The works will be circumscribed with perimeter sheets so that dust and various materials do not reach the existing vegetation. There will be no work at night, serious and insistent noises must be avoided and the vehicular transit of heavy vehicles will be reduced to a minimum.
