The architect of the project, Mr Joan Puig-Pey, appointed by the General Council and the Provincial Council, attended the first meeting of this central Commission.

The objectives of this meeting were to become familiar with the mandate of the central Commission, to define the major stages in realising the project and to study the fundamental aspects of the master plan.

The work of this Commission was facilitated partly by the good work that had already been realised by the International Commission of Marist Places” which completed its mandate in June 2006. Several members of this International Commission now belong to the central Commission.
