The plan will be valid for three years: 2022, 2023 and 2024. “We ask neighbors and communities of owners to be attentive to the opening of the call, which predictably It will take place at the beginning of next year, with the idea that all the dwellings defined in the aforementioned geographical area can participate in order to improve and rehabilitate the already consolidated urban spaces ”, Navas explained.
