The Municipality of Paralimni is the largest of the Free Province of Famagusta and its 15000 inhabitants are mainly engaged in tourism. The staff of the municipality is 200 people and consists of 45 officers and 155 person technical staff. During the summer months the number of employees increased by seasonal staff to meet the increased needs of visitors who coming to the area.
Paralimni Municipality will seek the cooperation of the European Road Safety to prepare a three-year action plan, with particular focus on education in the handling of children from early childhood to graduate high school.
In the first year of action we will organize events and print brochures, which are accessible to children of preschool age. It will then expand into larger age groups with similar material and enlightening events.
We will create and maintain a park for road safety education in our region. This park will be partly financed by our municipality, the Cyprus Government and the European Union.
