Arona unblocks work on vital civic centre
The project to provide Las Galletas with a new multi-purpose civic cente has been unlocked by Arona council.
The previous building is now a business centre but work on the replacement was halted when deficiencies were found.

The building is located at the corner of calles Central and Luis Álvarez Cruz and construction is now in the bidding phase and subsequent adjudication of the works with an investment maximum of 1.7 million euros.
Among the changes introduced by the project is the updating of the security and accessibility conditions in all the floors, as well as important modifications in the acoustic conditions of the auditorium, in the air conditioning and venti-lation, in the exterior cladding of the building, as well as in the finishes, with the aim of giving an adequate and modernised aesthetic.
The Mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, stressed the “enormous importance for Las Galletas of having a large social and cultural space of reference in which to carry out activities of all kinds and from which residents of all ages will benefit.”
