The City Council of Olot has launched a participatory process about the future uses of Hospital Sant Jaume. Within this process, the Garrotxa-Ripollès COAC Delegation organized a meeting to discuss the future uses of the existing building, which took place on Friday November 7th.

The event was attended by councillors Estanis Vayreda and Nuria Fite; mayor Josep M Corominas; and COAC representative Nieves Roca. They explained the possibilities for the building and the City Council's appreciation. The initial proposal is a multipurpose building, in which to centralize municipal services and continue with elderly assistance.

After the explanation of the work carried out by the City Council, during question time, there was a debate about commercial uses inside and outside the urban area and about the revitalization of the old town.
