The vertebrar the integral check of the needs, strengths and aspects to improve of the municipality Torreño is thing of experts in multiple facets that, according to the aims of a complete study to develop, they have not been limited to approach the technical scope of the offices not for a moment configure itself as the window, as the showcase particularist and, therefore, partial of a small sector of people but their sights have gone out on the street and feel and weigh the social, economic, urban, cultural, of leisure, sporting and even historical of a municipality of such a rich diversity of people, of concerns, desires, of expectations as Las Torres de Cotillas.

This model of city that would aim to outline a municipal strategic plan such as "Come and stay 2025" with a vision of a long-term future encompasses important strategic action keys, proposals and specific and detailed measures, so that one does not have to think about a total planning of the city. municipality based on an idea of ​​stagnating compartmentalization where each one makes war for what account and risk in a more globalized and competitive day to day world;

only the sum of wills, of coordinated forces will put us on the path to success.

The strategies proposed in a strategic plan of scope and entity such as the one developed by the Torreño City Council have a decisive and realistic impact on the commercial and service areas, solidarity, culture, the vision of an advanced city in terms of infrastructures. , equipment, services and communications, in its economic revitalization, in the attraction of public and private investments as well as financing lines to realize ambitious ideas of well-being for the neighbors, in their social dimension, innovative, in their environmental potential, all of them driven with a recurrent, common purpose: an integral, balanced and sustainable projection that generates employment and productive fabric.

But if we want a Municipal Strategic Plan of these characteristics to have a real spirit to last and last for many years, and have a brave, realistic perspective, adapted to the Torrena identity, at street level, in short, it is necessary to follow implementing a determined and intense process of citizen participation, which are the neighbors and local social, economic and political agents who take an active part by enriching the proposals with their particular contributions.

For this purpose, a strategic plan such as "Come and stay 2025" should be correct when designing as an open base document all the time it takes to consult and receive proposals and improvements from the broadest spirit of consensus, agreement or dialogue before adopting the final decisions, prioritizing, deciding and taking a seated and sensible path in that aspect.

The setting up of sectoral tables for technical analysis, telematic channels of consultation and participation, presentations to associations of neighborhood, social, commercial, cultural, sports, ... are other tools that are arbitrated to carry to a good port this bet of modernity of Las Torres de Cotillas.
