It is also necessary to animate this place. The students who live there will need it. We also have to guarantee the residents peace and quiet. This project will be balanced, ”assures the Mayor of Toulouse.
If nothing is certain at the moment, Jean-Luc Moudenc ensures that “the residents of the district are included in the reflection”.
