Stop the construction of a parking lot on Meuthstraße!
On June 7th, the city council plans to vote for a consequential construction project.
- The 8400 square meter large greenspace lies directly in the middle of a stream of fresh air that is essential for cooling the downtown area.
- According to the lower water authorities, there is a very high risk of flooding in this area.
- The climate adaptation concept (Chapter 4:
That is why the only solution is unsealing surfaces, adding green space, and upgrading.
We want a livable city!
Kaiserslautern is a beautiful city, that's not even a question.
An example is the development plan from 1995, which calls for a parking garage on Parkplatz Meuthstraße that would create enough parking spaces to turn not only this parking lot but also the two to the west into parks or greenspace.
To the north, there should be a biking path protected by trees, and to the south, the Lauter river could be re-opened, which would make not only the area but the entire city markedly more attractive.
The fresh wind from the Kaiserberg would would be further cooled by the trees and the air quality would be improved, so that we could deal with a warming climate and heat-related deaths would decrease - or at least not increase.
Mr. Ritter wants a fortress!
The investor and the city council want exactly this: more heat-related deaths!
They're planning to build a five to seven story building, which would cover nearly the entire parking surface.
In clear language, this means:
- more heat-related deaths
- another ugly space
- no safe bike path
- even worse air quality
- lots of profit for Mr. Ritter
