Paris Council voted for 2024 Olympic candidacy

Quote:
Rome, Boston et Hambourg se sont déjà lancées dans la course au sésame olympique. Paris s’approche tranquillement des starting-blocks de la ligne de départ. Jean-François Lamour (UMP) a lancé : «Il s’agit d’un moment important pour le sport français, à l’aube d’une nouvelle candidature. Après 1992, 2008 et 2012, il s’agit de la 4e tentative. Repartir pour les Jeux ce n'est pas anodin. Il faut tirer les enseignements des échecs précédents. Cela va être un combat très dur. Nous avons des villes puissantes en face notamment les Etats-Unis qui veulent réagir après l'échec d'Atlanta 96. Il faudra trouver le bon équilibre entre l'investissement et ce qu'il restera comme héritage à Paris. Si on rate là, ce n'est plus la peine de présenter une candidature. C'est celle du tout ou rien. Nous avons déjà beaucoup donné. Les Français sont sortis frustrés de ces aventures. Rien ne vaut les Jeux. Nous sommes sur la rampe de lancement, il reste à mettre le carburant et à allumer la mèche. La compétition sera rude. Le dossier ne devra pas être bon, il devra être le meilleur. Il faudra aller chercher les voix avec les dents.»

Eric Azière (UDI-Modem) a résumé : «Toutes les incertitudes qui subsistaient en fin d’année dernière ayant été levées, notre collectivité peut aujourd’hui afficher ce que j’appellerai des ambitions responsables. La véritable question à poser aux Parisiens n’est pas de savoir s’ils sont d’accord avec nous mais s’ils veulent des Jeux. Nous voulons les Jeux et nous les aurons.»

61 % des Français interrogés sont partants, selon le dernier sondage publié, celui d’Odoxa (ils étaient 71% en février et 87% en juin 2005). David Assouline (PS) a, dans cette dernière ligne droite rappelé qu’il souhaitait que «l’enthousiasme sorte de ses murs et trouve un soutien populaire.»

Les 163 conseillers municipaux de Paris, droite et gauche ont (la «trêve politique» a souvent été brandie et appelée par les intervenants lors des débats), à une très grande majorité, approuvé le voeu de la maire de Paris Anne Hidalgo qui avait planté après avoir insisté sur l’union indispensable derrière le mouvement sportif, l’indispensable projet écologique et souhaité construire l’espoir d’une génération 2024 : «Sur le plan de l’éthique politique et financière, le CIO a pris des engagements clairs qui permettent à Paris d’envisager de concourir avec ses valeurs fondamentales. Sur le plan de la sobriété, il s’est engagé à favoriser les candidatures plus respectueuses à la fois des citoyens et de l’environnement. Dans le même temps, l’État a compris la nécessité pour lui de s’engager financièrement aux côtés de la ville candidate. Enfin, comme je l’avais demandé, le gouvernement a laissé aux acteurs du dossier le temps : le temps de réfléchir pour le mouvement sportif, le temps de délibérer pour les élus locaux – en un mot le temps de nous donner aujourd’hui la chance de gagner demain.»
Tony Estanguet, membre du CIO a souligné, ravi : «C'est une étape décisive. Je remercie les élus parisiens. Le travail a été fait avec beaucoup de sérieux.» Jean-Bernard Bros (Groupe Radical de Gauche) a résumé : «Les défis seront écologiques et économiques. Le gigantisme est heureusement derrière nous. Les JO représentent une opportunité pour le mouvement sportif francilien et parisien. Nous avons appris des expériences passées. Il faut s’appuyer sur l’échec de 2005 que nous avons eu le temps de digérer. La perspective est exceptionnelle. Mettons des garde-fous, soyons vigilants. Le mouvement sportif, l’Etat, la région, la ville, les acteurs économiques, avançons tous dans le même sens. A une écrasante majorité. En accord avec le projet olympique.


L’Exposition Universelle 2025 n’est pas contradictoire avec la perspective olympique. C’est un grand oui au nom de mon groupe.» Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet (présidente du groupe UMP au conseil de Paris) ajoutant : «Il faut offrir aux Parisiens, aux Franciliens et aux Français, l’héritage qui peut découler d’un tel événement. Londres est la plus belle illustration des effets positifs avec 14 milliards de retombées. Il ne faut pas oublier que la candidature est celle des sportifs. Ce sont eux qui vont beaucoup travailler. Le message, c’est eux devant, nous derrière.» Quelques voix dissonantes se sont toutefois élevées, celle des Verts (écologistes), et Danielle Simonnet (Front de gauche) qui a regretté une «aberration économique et écologique.»

Do you think we need a high-rise building near Europa City to see it from above?

Anyone know what happened with the "Paris Metropole" plan that was first proposed in the spring of 2013? It was supposed to (I think) merge the current city proper of Paris with the three departments around it (Seine-Saint-Denis, Hauts-de-Seine and Val-de-Marne) to create something of a "Greater Paris". Has it been dropped to a governmental change?

The parisian olympic bid for 2024 will probably help this project come true...

The Métropole du Grand Paris is on its way, for the 1st january 2016 ! (Paris Métropole already exists but it's just a cooperation structure without real power)

Will the suburbs just be incorporated into today's Paris city proper, or how will it be done?

No annexation like Haussmann did. The MGP will be an inter-municipality cooperation establishment for strategical competencies (housing, environment, economic development and spatial planning) and will rely on intermediary territories, the Etablissements publics territoriaux (The city of Paris is one in itself), for more operational competences. Municipalities keep proximity competences.

I have a few questions too:

— Will the departments of the petite couronne be abolished?

— Are any communes going to be merged together?

— The new entity does not even remotely comprise all the communes that make up the metropolitan area of Paris, why is that? Since they're restructuring it, why not try and include as much as possible to get a result similar to the GLA?

Stravinsky => Living in Paris and from I understood :

Will the departments of the petite couronne be abolished?

=> Nope, In france Right and Left wing hate themselves so much that they can't agree even for the better. And if this is too be abolished many politics will lose their jobs, and they are not happy with that. On top of that the 92 (haut de Seine) does not want to mix witht he 93 or 94 (the poorer ones) but they do want to mix with 78, that's Yvelines. Because they are both right wing and because "their economy is similar and so are the social realities".

Are any communes going to be merged together?

=> Same as a bove, I doubt so :/

The new entity does not even remotely comprise all the communes that make up the metropolitan area of Paris, why is that? Since they're restructuring it, why not try and include as much as possible to get a result similar to the GLA?

=> Politics again I think. or some stupid reason as such...

The departments will remain but inter-communalities will be dissolved, afaik.

OK, I guess the situation in France is pretty much comparable to the Italian one, in terms of breaking up these Napoleonic entities.

That is, quite impossible.

It's a pity though, since this could have been an opportunity to make Paris and its mayor really representative of what they are (one of the two largest cities in the EU).

Departments make no sense within a densely built-up area, nor do hundreds of tiny communes. These are institutions that fit well in the countryside (even here I'm actually not sure if the two-level system of regions and departments is needed).

But within the city there should be larger districts of 100,000+ inhabitants, and a coordinating entity. There's so much potential.

There are advantages too, especially on the social side, to the multiplicity of municipalities in the Paris metro.

I think it's possible to have, at the same time, full-on local authority and at the same time a greater regional body that makes large projects run smoothly. It's just difficult to implement.

The 3 départements of the MGP are not abolished yet, but certainly will be in the next years. It will be discussed in Parliament soon but it may take some time for political and legal reason (departments have a constitutionnal protection).

This map depicting the Île-de-France region, from the French Wikipedia, shows the area that the "Grand Paris Metropole" is supposed to cover (in red). The red area also covers five communes outside the Paris City Proper and the three departments surrounding it. The communes marked in red are: Argenteuil, to the north; Chelles, to the east, and Vigneux-sur-Seine, Athis-Mons and Paray-Vielle-Poste, to the south.

My initial thoughts were the new "Grand Paris Metropole" was going to possibly incorporate some communes outside of the Paris CP and the three surrounding departments.

I wonder sometimes if having a centralized authority in case of big cities is really the most efficient scheme on economic stand point. I use to think so, obviously for housing, development urban planning..etc but what would it really bring as to motivate, attract, boost businesses ? Planning industrial development areas or services for instances, or even incubators for numerical businesses has not always proven to be efficient.
Sometimes leaving things articulate by themselves show more efficiency eventually. In that regards, generally, it just feels sometimes different communes or independant authorities in the suburbs of the capital are just been competitive one to another and that behaviour could benefit to the economic development maybe. One central authority could keep this behaviour to happen ? Or would we still have the local flexibility, proximity and leverages with taxes strategies or so ..

Yes, i think it's just a question of time (Prime Minister Manuel Valls told about 2022).
Besides that, president of the association of the Mayors of Ile-the-France (Paris Region) asks to low the numbers of cities (actual number of 124), which is a first step
