After failed attempts in recent years, the process for the establishment of the Monti Sicani Regional Park officially starts again. This morning, in fact, during a session of the fourth ARS commission, the regional councilor for the territory and the environment, Toto Cordaro, signed the decree that constitutes a new promoting committee.
Giusy Savarino, president of the fourth Commission, underlines: "Within 180 days of its establishment the committee will have to present to the Region the proposal to establish the Park. The process thus officially restarts, in the past several times blocked due to formal and merit errors. The Park will represent a driving force for economic development throughout the Sicani area and will be a reason for tourist attraction. Furthermore, the European funds available for the parks system in Sicily can be used ”.
Councilor Toto Cordaro states: "In the organizing committee we involved the subjects provided for by the current legislation. Now open municipal councils and public assemblies will be held, the process will end with the request and the institution of the institution. The idea of Musumeci Government Park is a modern idea, we want to enhance the environmental and territorial resources and at the same time attract investments. The funds and the possibilities are there, now we need to work well on the organizational level ".
The organizing committee is temporarily composed primarily of the mayors of the Municipalities in whose territories the reserves already established fall: Bivona, Burgio, Cammarata, Castronovo of Sicily, Chiusa Sclafani, Contessa Entellina, Giuliana, Palazzo Adriano, Prizzi, San Giovanni Gemini, Santo Stefano Quisquina and Sambuca di Sicilia.
