Interview with Jean-Marc Gibey, Mayor of Jargeau, published in the 81st issue of "La Loire et ses terroirs" (summer 2012).
The parish of Jargeau, whose history is closed tied in with the Loire’s, signed the Loire Valley World Heritage commitment charter back in November 2003.
Because of its location – in a fully flood-prone area – the parish must come to terms with this Loire of two faces like the Roman god Janus:
The parish has been committed since September 2010 to an Agenda 21 initiative, submitted for accreditation to the French Ecology Ministry. Discussions with the inhabitants highlighted as one of the strategic objectives “The Loire and Jargeau heritages as channels for vitality and appeal”.
The actions taken in this regard seek to develop a coherent, visible and sustainable tourism policy from the Loire. These actions include the plans to remove some of the plants from part of the beach to open it up to the river again (with an integration work site), which will itself help to develop leisure activities for everyone on the river banks, such as the Jargeau-Plage initiative that has been conducted since 2010 and welcomes several thousand people each year. Another action is to continue the close partnership with the Maison de Loire du Loiret, which has been based in Jargeau since 1987.
With the amiable authorisation of " La Loire et ses terroirs ".
