For you, and with you, Farciennes Bouge!
Dear fellow-citizens, dear visitors, welcome to the new website of the municipal government of Farciennes.
Farciennes is a small entity of the Lower Sambre, on the edge of Hainaut province, which has been confronted with image problems for a couple of years. Farciennes is the poorest municipality in Wallonia and also one of the municipalities with the highest unemployment rate. Grouped in the shadow of the Tour du Roton – the symbol of the last coalmine to close in Wallonia – its working-class houses and council houses shelter a population mainly resulting from the economic immigration that allowed our regions to develop their past wealth.
For three years now, the new team of the municipal board has been making every effort to create a new, dynamic and attractive image of Farciennes. We want to convert our experiences of yesterday into tools for the success of tomorrow.
With the image of a main square in redevelopment, a future Ecopole (pole of economic development) that will make all of Europe envy us, but also significant actions to fight against unemployment or insecurity that are now bearing fruit, this new website – a real interface between the municipality and the citizens – is more proof that Farciennes is moving!
I invite you to discover it in your own language and to see the numerous actions that have been undertaken for and with the inhabitants of Farciennes.
|The Deputy and Burgomaster
