We have presented the idea and objective of the event. The Mayor is interested in coopeation. We agreed to meet again on the 6th of March to discuss what we can do together for the Year of Jan Gehl. It’s not just about technical support but we dream of a joint pilot attempt, some kind of experiment ..[…] We have also talked about the over-scaled roads and ‘anti-human’ policy in spatial planning. Pointing out specifically Ducha and Sikorskiego Streets, Trasa Zielona and Stadium, LL80, Racławickie and Sowińskiego […] Lublin West Train Station – we have presented our proposal for the station at Granitowa Street and the danger of creating a new, serious barrier in the city.
