What will be the program for Saint-Brieuc Citizens’ Day on Saturday in the Balzac district?

“When we ask them where they come from, the inhabitants of Saint-Brieuc answer from this or that neighborhood and we want to change that,” says Stéphane Favrais, deputy mayor for proximity and city policy.

Unlike previous editions, Citizens’ Day 2024 will take place entirely in the same district: that of Balzac, under the trees of the wasteland left by the old towers. From 10:30 a.m., activities are planned, including crafts, music and even wooden games. Radio Activ’era will be present to give voice to the neighborhood’s elders. At noon, it will be the Spanish inn: everyone plans their own picnic. At 5 p.m., the Prévallon nursing home will have prepared a snack. Finally, the day will end at 6:30 p.m. with the revelation of the winners of the City’s participatory budget.

“Strong desire to go to Balzac”

“Last year, we made the deliberate choice not to organize anything,” confides Stéphane Favrais. The 2022 edition having not received satisfactory feedback, the town hall decided to “take the time to reflect”. The event is the result of collaborative work between neighborhood committees, citizens, associations and municipal services.

Betty, a resident of Balzac, contributed greatly to the preparation of this day. She managed to recover the doors of the old towers and invites participants to come and write a little note on them. “It’s high time to raise our heads,” she says. » And Stéphane Favrais added: “We had a strong desire to go to Balzac after the riots of last year. »
