Conclusions from the discussion regarding the Radotín Centre
The public hearing of the Radotín Centre construction project on Monday 22 January filled the large hall of the Radotín Cultural Centre. The discussion, which lasted almost 4 hours, was very interesting and intertwined with various views of people on the future shape of this key Radotín locality, the ”heart of Radotín”.
The programme, attracting extraordinary interest of more than 130 citizens, was opened by the introductory words of the Mayor of Prague 16, Mgr. Karel Hanzlík, who summed up the long history of the town hall’s intention: to move this former industrial part of the city and now gradually dilapidated buildings including the unsuitable construction yard towards the 21st century; to create a place where people will like to go shopping, where they will visit a new town hall to attend to everything they need in one place, and where a new offer of quality housing, now desperately lacking in Radotín, will be created.
„The entire project has been in preparation for a long time, and the local authority is trying to solve all the ambiguities and contradictions. This was also repeatedly mentioned in the discussion, and it turned out that the involvement of an independent expert, Ing. arch. Petr Hlaváček, had been a great move,"
the mayor of Radotín appreciates the work of the former director of the Prague Institute of Planning and Development. Thanks to several months of his work, the permanent pressure of the town hall to change the original project (first presented in 2013) and the change in legislation, things have moved, and the new proposal has undergone a number of fundamental changes.The public hearing of the Radotín Centre construction project on Monday 22 January
