The pain stops the excessive apartmentization

first_img“The law says that we may prepare new construction zones when the existing ones from the spatial plans reach the level of 80 percent of construction. As we are very close to that percentage, the municipality will soon have to find new construction zones within which we will allow construction, but as we do not want these areas to experience the fate of apartmentization, the municipality has the opportunity to adjust construction conditions to certain types of construction.”, Said Marinkovic. He notes that the idea arose after the municipality realized that they would have to adopt new spatial plans because their previous construction zones were mostly filled. As they point out from the Municipality of Bol, the idea is to allow the construction of a building with a ground floor and a maximum of one floor, but with special attention to the proportion, where special focus will be on horticulture or under the slogan smaller buildings with large green areas. The Mayor of Bol, Tihomir Marinković, explained that the municipality plans to allocate future construction zones in the area of ​​the administrative unit for two specific types of construction. Namely, these are smaller apartments for workers and luxury villas with a ground floor and a maximum of one floor. One of them is Bol on Brač, which is the first administrative unit in Croatia with the initiative to limit the possibility of building tourist apartments. The reason for this is the example of certain local self-government units whose infrastructure practically broke under the burden of Zimmer Frei, reports Jutarnji list.

A good part of these beds are hotel beds, mostly those from the Bluesun group. Last year, the municipality made a total of 102 thousand arrivals and over 600 thousand overnight stays. One form of construction is housing for workers, and the other form of construction is luxury villas that could be used for housing or rent, but which, in order to prevent high density of housing, will mean less construction on larger plots of land. Some local self-government units have decided to shift the burden of the fight against apartmentization to themselves, when the state has been refusing to do so for years. last_img read more

Wireless network, credit card system among improvements at Carrier Dome

first_imgThe Carrier Dome improvements wrapped up last Friday when Syracuse tested the new wireless network and credit card system installed in the arena. The additions were part of a summer-long project highlighted by new video boards and a 360-degree ribbon board.The video boards were completed nearly three weeks ago, in time for the Home to the Dome event during freshman orientation.Carrier Dome managing director Pete Sala said the renovations were focused on enhancing the fan experience with state-of-the-art technology.“To me, being here as long as I have and seeing all these upgrades and improvements, it just makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up and it’s so exciting,” Sala said. “All the improvements that we did over the summer were to enhance the game-day experience for the fans.”The renovations, which started in May, include video boards in both end zones that are 21 feet high and 40 feet wide. Two smaller — 12 feet high and 10 feet wide — displays are on either side of the larger boards. The boards were finished Aug. 9, and allow the staff to change the advertisements easily, play videos and provide statistics throughout games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the wireless network, credit card system and video boards all in place, the stadium is set to host its season opener against Northwestern at noon Saturday. The Dome will host three high school games Friday, serving as a chance to test each element.Sala said he worked with the Syracuse University IT staff to create 150 new access points in the arena for fans to get the Internet on their smartphones. Fans will also be able to send messages through Facebook and Twitter to be displayed on the new video boards.“It needed to be easy for the fan to get on the Internet. That was our first goal,” Sala said. “And then it needed to be dependable and something that was easy to get through to get on. That was our biggest goal.”Fans will also be able to use credit cards at all permanent points of sale, which they couldn’t do before. Athletic director Daryl Gross was adamant about the addition of the new system, Sala said.“Again, it’s a fan experience thing,” Sala said. “And you couldn’t, at the time, use credit cards anywhere but the ticket office.“Now, anywhere there’s a permanent concessions location in the Dome, you’ll be able to use a credit card to make the purchase.”For Sala, the additions will make for a better fan experience starting Saturday as the Dome is now a state-of-the-art facility in each aspect.“It’s a huge improvement for us,” Sala said. “This is going to create such a better atmosphere.” Comments Published on August 29, 2012 at 3:12 am Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
