Through Writing Evreux
At the end of October 2021, the elected representatives of the Eure Department have decided to pay € 45,250 in grants to eight high-level amateur sports clubs based in Evreux and Saint-Sébastien-de-Morsent.
The lucky beneficiaries are: Évreux athletic club athletics (€ 6,650), BMX Évreux (€ 3,000), Évreux football-club 27 (€ 14,500), Les Pirates d’Évreux (€ 1,000), Saint-Sébastien Sports Handball (€ 8,000) , Rugby at the Évreux athletic club (€ 9,500), Évreux athletic club squash (€ 1,500), Évreux athletic club triathlon (€ 3,000).
San Sebastián Olympic Preparation Center
“Supporting the world of sports is obvious to us. On the one hand, it is a sector that has suffered terribly from the health crisis. On the other hand, the Eure is labeled Terre de jeux 2024 ”, recalls Stéphanie Auger, Évreux-1 departmental advisor.
Even if it doesn’t host any sporting events, the Eure has overriding assets to be a back base for athletes and teams, who will need places to stay, eat and prepare.
These assets were recently recognized by the Organizing Committee for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which retained, no later than the end of October, the candidature of Saint-Sébastien-de-Morsent as a preparation center for the Games.
Clearly, Saint-Sébastien-de-Morsent and the La Musse hospital will be present in the catalog offered to all international sports delegations, with a view to their preparation for the Olympic Games. Their joint candidacy caught the attention of the organizing committee for table tennis and boccia.
€ 31,940 for road safety
In addition to sport, the elected representatives of the commission registered the return of € 50,993 in police fines for the cantons of Évreux: development of a pedestrian path with signage in Closurey (€ 15,250), installation of ” an educational radar in Huest (1,440 €), urbanization of a pedestrian path, signage and stops in Irreville (€ 15,250).
“Road improvements are often very expensive, especially for small cities that don’t have big budgets. And the road works quickly reach substantial sums ”, underlines Diane Leseigneur, departmental councilor of the canton of Évreux-3.
“This type of development is welcome in small towns, like Irreville, that experience significant traffic. This contributes to both road safety and pedestrian safety ”, adds Nicolas Gavard-Gongallud, Évreux-2 departmental councilor.
As a reminder, the Department is competent to distribute police fines to municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants, following a transfer of fines by the Prefecture. This money is used to finance the improvement of road safety conditions for all road users (educational radars, pedestrian paths, speed bumps, reflective pads, etc.).
