Important projects related to the tourist infrastructure of free Famagusta will be promoted in 2014. As revealed by the Mayor of Paralimni, Theodoros Pyrillis, through the Structural Funds of the European Union, planning for the renovation-beautification of the historic central core of Paralimni.

Specifically, this design will cover through a study the traffic, parking lots, commerciality and all the economic and other aspects concerning the center of Paralimni, in order to track and finance solutions through the EU Structural Funds, without the Republic of Cyprus to have a financial burden. Describing the project under promotion as a very important one for some years for Paralimni, Mr. Pyrillis revealed that in about a month the Municipality of Paralimni will send a package of suggestions to the competent European Commission.

At the same time and without setting a timetable, Mr. Pyrillis said that in the near future the necessary common policies with the EU will be gradually launched, in order to promote the huge urban planning project for the central core of Paralimni.

In another important development, in consultation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment, the proclamation of two artificial reefs created in previous years in the sea of ​​free Famagusta, in national water parks, will be promoted in the coming months. One reef is located in the sea area of ​​Paralimni and the other in the area of ​​Ayia Napa.

Finally, the Government will consider the possibility of promoting a project for the creation of large water reservoirs, located outside Paralimni. The water reservoirs will have a capacity of 150 thousand tons of water and the purpose of the project is to provide free Famagusta with water self-sufficiency for water supply purposes, at least for a few days. The project is considered appropriate, due to the presence of a large number of tourists in the area, especially during the summer months. As Mr. Pyrillis pointed out, until today this self-sufficiency lasts only a few hours and is based on the minimal water storage spaces that hotels and other tourist businesses have in free Famagusta.
