Karlsruhe (FDP / FW | FOR) – The census community from the FDP and the FW|FÜR city council group welcome the considerations of the head of the building department Daniel Fluhrer. He expressed his thoughts to the press Convert the ground floor of the town hall into a market hall, so that the market square as well is enlivened with other bars.

For years, the members of the census community have been demanding a market hall. “The southern flair and the Mediterranean attitude to life are repeatedly invoked in our city,” explains the FDP parliamentary group leader Tom Høyem, “but that has to go hand in hand with the regional economy, through a market hall”. The marketplace is the ideal location. “The marketplace should be the place where people meet and get together. Far too often there is no life here when other shops have already closed,” says Jürgen Wenzel, parliamentary group leader of the FW|FUR group. There are currently only three bars on the market square, between the town church and the town hall the square has often been deserted.

“We think the proposal to involve the town hall more in the design of the entire square is an important step,” says the census community. In addition, and this is unknown to many, according to the two factions, the town hall not only offers the space, but particularly good premises for a market hall, because under the citizens’ hall there is a large vaulted cellar, “ideal for a council cellar, and the atriums of the town hall are perfect – if you actually use it”. The digital citizens’ office, which up until now has mainly offered the same services as via the Internet, could also make way for a café – via KA-WLAN, these “government visits” can also be completed via smartphone or tablet with a cup of coffee on the market square.
