Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole will become Fontenay-le-Fleury. Don’t worry, this only concerns two places.

This Thursday, January 19, a public inquiry begins on the territorial limits of Fontenay-le-Fleury and Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole.

She is in progress until February 3. An investigator is available to the population and provides two hotlines* in these two municipalities. The first is scheduled for this Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the town hall of Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole.

Public inquiry started

The municipal boundaries have remained what they were in the past, without taking into consideration the creation and then the widening of the A12 motorway.

“It’s a very old affair. The limits of the town were made up around agricultural plots. At the time Fontenay-le-Fleury and Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole were mainly farms. Time passed, the highway arrived and finally cut the territory with this highway. We live since with lands which finally on both sides belong to one and the other. There was an attempt at modification in the years 1967. The procedure has not been completed, for lack of response to a letter from the Prefecture. I want to harmonize the reality on the ground with the reality of the cadastral documents”

Richard Rivaud,Mayor of Fontenay-le-Fleury.

The mayor of Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole, Sonia Brau, is in favor of making the A12 motorway separate from Fontenay-le-Fleury. “There should have been this division at the time of the A12. We have to adapt to the new topography of our cities and evolve with them”, assures Sonia Brau.

Various facilities blocked

This change would be beneficial for the mayor of Fontenay-le-Fleury, blocked for the moment.

In his mandate, he undertook to renovate the Descartes sports complex. It is planned to consolidate all tennis activities with the creation of two new indoor courts, two outdoor courts and the creation of a club house and two padel courts. Also, an athletics track should be created as well as a parking lot.

To do so, the city councilor needs to recover plots belonging to the cadastre in the municipality of Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole in zone N at the PLU.

“This classification is an obstacle to the indoor tennis rehabilitation project which requires that we be able to build on abandoned land currently included in this N zone and therefore unbuildable, the same for the football field. We need to create a car park along the motorway, the first stage of our development of the Descartes plateau, but it is on the Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole site, ”he underlines.

On the other side, same problem. The rue Georges Bizet serves the Levant district. This is located in the cadastre on the territory of Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole, but it has been fitted out and is maintained by Fontenay-le-Fleury.

“It’s a street whose roads date back to the 1960s. It’s deteriorated and there’s no public lighting. Many Fontenaysiens use this area. At this time of year, it gets dark early, and pedestrians walk around in the dark. The Fontenaysiens complain about this dark area. We want to enter this street into the Fontenaysiens heritage to equip it with public facilities for the inhabitants, but we are blocked for the lighting and the repair of the sidewalks on this plot, ”says Richard Rivaud.

“The idea is to stick to reality. We must give coherence to the territory”

“In fact, this street has been part of the territory of Fontenay-le-Fleury for a very long time. Once the Schweitzer bridge is passed, we change towns,” adds Sonia Brau.

For this, the Local urban plan (PLU) will have to be modified. Both cities want these changes. However, it will be necessary to wait until the public inquiry is closed. The prefect will make a decision based on the responses.

“These modifications will not lead to any change in the electoral map, nor in population attachment since the land along the highway is only made up of roads or sports fields”, inform the two mayors.

* Permanences of the investigator:
– Mayor of Saint-Cyr-l’Ecole: Thursday 19 January, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
– Fontenay-le-Fleury town hall: Friday 3 February, from 2.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
