The Urban Community is placed under the authority of the Mayor of the city.
Missions of the Urban Communities
The urban community manages, under the supervision of the State, local affairs with a view to the economic, social and cultural development of its populations. Also, its status as a public service company with the sole constant concern of improving the living environment and the operation of public facilities forces it to provide a quality service while ensuring rigorous management of public funds.
The Urban Community has competence in the following areas
- Urban planning and development;
- Equipment and infrastructure of community interest;
- Maintenance of the main road network and signalling;
- Public lighting and drinking water supply;
- Traffic and transport;
- Public car parks and car parks;
- Municipal slaughterhouses;
- Markets and fairs;
- Municipal museums
- Parks and gardens
- Execution of land and property measures of the building permit;
- Naming of streets, squares and public buildings;
- Hygiene and sanitation.
In terms of land transport, the Urban Community is responsible for the study and management of maintenance programmes for smaller infrastructures and networks (as the ministries of the city or of public works are responsible for the larger ones); the Urban Community also manages the public road domain, in relation with the relevant departments. To this end, it has a « Traffic and Urban Transport » department responsible for :
â-¦ the study and implementation of the facilities and equipment necessary for the application of the traffic plan;
â-¦ Urban transport and travel;
â-¦ the maintenance and management of the various transport facilities
â-¦ liaising with operators in the transport sector.
On a daily basis, the Urban Community ensures that the infrastructures and facilities installed on the public highway are respected in order to maintain a development of travel adapted for a more simplified and organised mobility of our cities.
