The Local Council of Fez is preparing its first ordinary session of the year 2022, during which it will be discussed the creation of two new local development companies (SDL), namely “Fez Mawarid” and “Fez mobility and urban travel”. Other items on the agenda: the renewal of the partnership agreement with RADEEF, and the project for a new bus station.



The Local Council of Fez will hold, February 7th, its first ordinary session under the year 2022 during which it will adopt several projects and partnership agreements for the economic and social development of the city. An opportunity for the new mayor to outline his priorities for the year 2022.

These projects include, in particular, the creation of a new Local Development Company (SDL), “Fez Mawarid”, which will centralize the revenue of the Commune, an SDL “Fez mobility and urban travel”, the renewal of the partnership agreement with RADEEF (for the operation of electrical energy from biogas from the landfill of the city), the creation of a new bus station and the launch of appropriate studies.

The members of the municipality will also have to validate, among the 46 items on the agenda of the next session of the council, a project for the acquisition of two plots of land intended, respectively, the construction of a new slaughterhouse and a fish market, with the launch of preliminary studies.

It should be recalled that the communal wholesale fish market, carried out under the mandate of Hamid Chabat (2003-2015) remained undeveloped

Indeed, a study by the Ministry of Agriculture and Maritime Fisheries having found that this infrastructure did not meet the standards of hygiene and sanitation, it was decided to build a new one. Since then, fishmongers in the city of Fez sell their products in their vehicles or on the sidewalks adjacent to the market, located in the district of Bensouda. The bus station of Fez, being among those that receive the largest flows of passengers nationally, has reached a saturation point.

Also, the council decided to launch the necessary studies for the creation of a new station to international standards. Pending the realization of this ambitious project, the municipality has established a PSC dedicated to the management and renovation of the current station and opted for the creation of a Local Development Company (SDL), “Fez Passenger Bus Station”, with a capital of $107,000 (1 million dirhams).

The role of this SDL will be limited to the management and operation of the services of the future station, as well as the realization of related studies.
