Born on February 26, 1940, Don José Calvo Sáez was mayor of the town between 1979 and 1983. Under his administration, Bigastro grew in every way with infrastructures that we still enjoy today.
His actions as mayor include the inauguration of the municipal soccer field, the installation of the first traffic lights in the municipality, the reform of the town hall, the approval of the first General Urban Planning Plan in the history of Bigastro, the construction of the park municipal Huerto del Cura, the repair of schools, the construction of the first house of culture in the old laundry and the creation of the first social centre, in the old asylum of the nuns.
He was a good man who knew how to leave an indelible mark among his neighbours, with deep affection for his Bigastro, a municipality where he was born and grew up, and which now welcomes him into eternity as part of its history.
Rest in peace, mayor.
