LValère-Lefebvre Hospital will it undoubtedly disappear from the panorama Wet (Seine-Saint-Denis), within the years to come back ? This previous file, well-known to the oldest residents, was put again on the desk over the past metropolis council, on October 10, 2022, and a memorandum of understanding on an evolution of the positioning was voted by the bulk.
What’s the challenge ? What’s going to occur to the 12,500m² land space of the Valère-Lefebvre hospital, positioned at 73 boulevard de l’Ouest?
The Valère-Lefebvre case on the coronary heart of the debates
18 years after the closure of the Valère-Lefebvre hospital, the way forward for the positioning was mentioned by the metropolis council of Raincythroughout an interminable session on October 10th. “We have not heard of it for years! We’re stunned that that is instantly again on the desk, ”we are saying within the ranks of the opposition.
Certainly, this thorny query had not been on the agenda since 2019.
The historical past of the Valère-Lefebvre hospital in dates
– April 21, 1902: Mr Valère Lefebvre bequeaths to the Metropolis of Raincy a property positioned at 73 boulevard de l’Ouest. The need of the time offered that the property can be allotted to the creation of a hospice.

– July 2, 2013: the Metropolis of Raincy (former municipality) and the GHI Montfermeil formalize an settlement to proceed with the sale of the plots. The memorandum of understanding is signed. Within the course of, the court docket of Bobigny is seized by the 2 events for a request for revision of the legacy.
– December 2, 2019: the Bobigny court docket authorizes the Metropolis of Raincy and the GHI Montfermeil to promote the plots. Which in the end won’t ever occur for the reason that mayor has modified within the meantime.
The file resurfaced through the fee with the elected officers, earlier than the municipal council. The mayor of Raincy, Jean-Michel Genestier (SE)broached the topic by explaining that a memorandum of understanding for the sale of the plots of the Valère-Lefebvre hospitalbelonging to the municipality, can be put to the vote. Astonishment on the aspect of the opposition. Many questions are requested and “the solutions weren’t actually clear”, confides a council member.
It was subsequently an extended debate that occurred on October 10 through the municipal council (the editorial workers couldn’t watch the session, which is not on-line, editor’s notice) and opposition politicians have expressed their concern in regards to the ignorance on the way forward for the positioning if the land had been to be bought. “We ask you in unison to postpone this deliberation in order that we will work collectively on this file,” launched the opposition. In useless.
What does this new memorandum of understanding comprise?
In response to the paperwork consulted by information Seine-Saint-DenisJean-Michel Genestier gives a new distribution of this land, all of which (12,500m²) is now owned by the Metropolis and the GHI (Intermunicipal Hospital Group) Montfermeil. The mayor proposes that the municipality stay the only proprietor of the parcel topic to Valère Lefebvre’s legacy and on which the hospital constructing was constructed. This represents eight,500 m² and should essentially accommodate an Ehpad or medical service, in accordance with the phrases of the bequest. Nonetheless, the primary aedile didn’t no challenge submitted to convey this deserted land again to life.
“As we speak, we now have nothing concrete, nothing written in black and white. Mr. Genestier has had discussions with the ARS for eight years and there’s nonetheless nothing concrete. We ask for ensures as a result of we’ve not had any on different tasks,” castigates Nicolas Rondepierre, joined by David Perreira: “we do not need to not do it, we simply need time. The bulk is liable for what is going on”.
For its half, the GHI Montfermeil would grow to be the proprietor of the remainder of the plot, i.e. four,000 m². A land that will not be not topic to bequest guidelines. “This was not confirmed by the mayor once we requested him to verify it with the genuine paperwork”, signifies Nicolas Rondepierre, elected from the opposition group Tous pour le Raincy. Once more, no rehabilitation challenge for this wasteland has been introduced.
The brand new distribution recorded in December?
Regardless of the a number of requests to postpone the deliberation made through the municipal council, Jean-Michel Genestier didn’t waver. The elected representatives of the bulk having adopted the mayor, the memorandum of understanding on this new distribution of land was adopted.
We should now anticipate the GHI Montfermeil Board of Administrators to additionally vote on this memorandum of understanding for it to be definitively adopted. “It is our final hope”, unfastened David Perreira, disillusioned with the situation. “Sadly, the Metropolis has all the ability on the topic, the cube could have already been solid,” he provides.
Board of administrators ought to meet in Decemberin accordance with our data. Earlier than this deadline, the members of the opposition group Tous pour le Raincy determined to request an appointment with the director of the GHI.
The 2013 memorandum of understanding undoubtedly thrown out
The story of a memorandum of understanding is just not so new. In 2013, a primary memorandum of understanding was signed between the previous mayor of the town, Éric Raoult, and the GHI of Montfermeil: the switch by the Metropolis of the plot bequeathed by Valère Lefebvre to the hospital. The GHI Montfermeil thus turned the only proprietor of all of the land. This plot being encumbered by the legacy, ARS (Regional Well being Company) thus had the hand to arrange an institution in conformity with the desire of Valère Lefebvre. In return, the GHI bought the Ermitage retirement dwelling in Raincy. The Metropolis then benefited from a plot of four,000 m2 within the metropolis middle.
This challenge, on the time, was quite effectively obtained by the elected representatives of the bulk, the opposition in addition to by the inhabitants who lastly noticed a future in it. This deal by no means noticed the sunshine of day because it was aborted when Jean-Michel Genestier was elected mayor.
The priority of some residents and elected officers
New protocol protocol introduced in haste, no certainty, considerations… The Valère-Lefebvre hospital file is much from closed. As for the inhabitants, the topic instantly turned a supply of concern after discovering that the topic was once more being taken up by the Metropolis.
We do not know what’s actually going to occur, we attempt to get data from folks we all know but it surely appears very imprecise. Now we have a home on Boulevard de l’Ouest, just a few meters from the hospital, and we see this constructing deserted for years, it is distressing. We’re not in opposition to progress on this file, however we don’t wish to see buildings develop right here. It is suburban, there is a huge highschool simply reverse… Buildings right here, it is unthinkable.
Identical story with Marc who additionally lives within the neighborhood. “The massive query is why we, the residents of this district, weren’t consulted. We have been right here for much longer than the mayor. We all know all the pieces about Valère-Lefebvre and we may additionally have needs for the environment. I do not know what is going to grow to be of it, but it surely’s not reassuring”.
If these inhabitants shouldn’t have to fret about the way forward for the plot stored by the municipality, that of the land which must be ceded to the GHI can, actually, feed some fantasies. Not being a priori framed by the foundations of the legacy, these four,000 m2 might be bought by the general public hospital with a view to bail out its coffers. From there to seeing a property developer seize the chance to erect buildings? Every thing is feasible, the PLU (Native City Plan) of 2017 foresees the potential of constructing 100 dwellings on this plot.
Mireille and Marc all have two signed the petition which was posted online just a few days in the past by the group Tous pour le Raincy and which has already collected 300 signatures. “We would like the inhabitants to be consulted on such an vital topic, not a signature on the sly,” launches Nicolas Rondepierre, who wonders: “why such a rush? »
To reply to these considerations, this opposition group proposes “to let the inhabitants communicate at neighborhood conferences. You need to current one thing concrete and reassure, ”provides Nicolas Cuadrado (Tous pour le Raincy). The opposition is unanimous on the topic: “this leaves room for a lot of fantasies as a result of we now have no concrete explanations”, concludes David Perreira.
Would the historic choice lastly already be made?
Contacted a number of occasions, the Metropolis of Raincy didn’t reply to Seine-Saint-Denis information questions.
