“Next Tuesday public consultation will be launched on the programme for the integral reconstruction of the city’s historical centre. In addition to that, an expert discussion and a set of round tables will be launched to include citizens and experts in the process… in order to use the reconstruction process to revitalise the city’s historical centre,” the mayor said at a news conference.
His deputy Luka Korlaet said the programme for the integral reconstruction of the city’s historical centre would be presented on 22 March, on the second anniversary of the Zagreb earthquake.
“It will be the first long-term strategic document of that kind, providing guidelines for the state, city, private owners and investors on how to carry out not only seismic retrofitting but how to make the city better as a whole,” Korlaet said.
He said the document was aimed at defining a new approach to urban development to make the city safer and greener and make its residents’ quality of life better, with less traffic jams and lower utility bills.
Point for mass vaccination at Zagreb Trade Fair Centre closed
Tomašević said that after almost a year, the point for mass vaccination against COVID-19 at the Zagreb Trade Fair Centre closed down last weekend.
Between 50 and 100 medical workers worked at the location on a daily basis for the past 12 months, administering close to 480,000 vaccine doses, he said.
“We need to continue to be cautious, and if the current trend changes, we will be ready to respond with mass vaccination capacity,” the mayor stressed.
He also announced that the city ZET public transportation company would be offering free public transport for Ukrainian refugees who have a certificate issued by the Ministry of the Interior proving their displaced person status.
