Listen –aringo It is trying to take the Ascoli trade by the arm again and, as it prepares to launch by the end of the year the extension of the free and double occupation of public lands, is preparing an urban variant to allow the activities of old town To be able to use privately owned outdoor spaces with furniture structures, thus exceeding the maximum allowed so far of 15 square meters, but in any case not exceeding half of the available space.
Thus, talk of expansions on private lands is in line with the disparagement of municipally owned outdoor spaces. In the meantime, the municipal administration’s provision of the variant has already been submitted to the province for EIA (as well as the Provincial Supervisory Authority, Ciip, Aato 5, Area Vast 5 and Civil Engineering) and now it has been granted permission without further formalities. At this point, the will of Arengo is to present the same alternative to the approval of the Municipal Council to incorporate the executive rules of the detailed plan of the historic center of Ascoli in order to be able to give commercial activities the possibility of using even the most private individuals with structures and furnishings.
With the path initiated by the municipal administration, the intention is to amend the existing rules for the detailed plan of the historic center to allow existing commercial activities to install furnishing structures in the relevant private outdoor spaces even beyond the limits of 15 square meters of surface area. But, in any case, do not exceed 50% of the entire available space. The motivation behind Arengo’s decision to move forward with this option hinges on the fact that “an alternative is necessary to further encourage the use of outdoor spaces also related to commercial activities in order to prevent negative outcomes related to the COVID-19 emergency.” Thus, the obvious objective is also to meet the needs of commercial activities that may have private outdoor spaces, whether owned or rented, that can so far only be used with minimalistic furniture structures (up to 15 square metres). A letter that will now travel in parallel with the Arengo procedure to extend the period of restriction, which ends December 31, for the free occupation of public lands and, on demand, doubled as has been done by the will of the municipality in the last few years.
In addition to some purely technical indications related to the water connections, communicated by Ciip, there is also the prescription of the Supervisory Authority for Monuments, Fine Arts and Landscapes which affirms, as for the use of public surfaces, that the lighting structures to be used also in the areas This may result in overlapping with the facades and architectural elements of buildings, or with “the perception of particularly important elements or glimpses of the urban environment”.
A discourse studying, meanwhile, Arengo also, through further modifications of the organization of the street furniture in the historic center, precisely to develop some modifications regarding, in particular, a stricter organization for a greater protection of the image of Piazza del Popolo, given its importance not only For urban decoration, but also in terms of tourism.
