The presentation at the Concord hotel yesterday.

The strategic plan for Can Picafort that was unveiled at the Concord hotel in Son Baulo yesterday includes the resurrection of a previous proposal for a velodrome to be built in the resort.

This was just one element in the plan being put forward by the town hall (Santa Margalida). Its implementation is expected to start later this year with an initial funding of 400,000 euros from the town hall.

The velodrome will be a key part of the "stellar" aspect of this plan - a high-performance sports centre which will consist of other sporting facilities and a residence for young sportspeople. Land of 240,000 square metres would be used in creating this centre.

Other elements include a new park in Son Baulo, the creation of four car parking zones, the pedestrianisation or semi-pedestrianisation of certain roads (which could include the main road between Alcudia and Arta and the Paseo Colon that runs parallel to the promenade). The promenade itself would be made fully complete in that it would unite the Capellans end (at the Playa de Muro boundary) with the dunes at Son Baulo.

I expect the local tailors will be rubbing their hands waiting for the influx of politicians, businesmen and other interested parties requiring their back pockets to be made larger.

I expect that sooner or later,they will be holding out their hands to claim some of the tourist tax money for these schemes.
