At its meeting on 24/11/2011, the Prague 18 City Council decided to establish a Commission for the Regeneration of Housing Estates and the Environment. One of the main goals of the commission is to restore the housing estate as a whole. I will primarily work on the transfer of CPI / BPT land to the municipality, on the regeneration of green areas, on the transformation of asphalted land into playgrounds, the restoration of sidewalks and roads and other tasks that will result in the modern housing estate Letňany. The tasks of the commission will include the preparation of revitalization projects, the processing of documents for negotiations with developers and landowners, and cooperation with the commission of territorial development and construction.
Councilor Jan Mikulecký adds to the establishment of the commission: “In addition to the regeneration of the housing estate, the commission will address issues of environmental protection and creation, nature and landscape protection, water and air protection, care for urban greenery and waste management.”
The Commission is an advisory body of the City Council and is chaired by the Chairman, who is the Deputy and Councilor Jan Mikulecký. The commission has another 4 members from the ranks of Letňany citizens: Mrs. Martina Machová, pi. Jitka Lepiarzová, Mr. Jan Fišar and Mr. Pavel Filípek. Proof of the maximum transparency of the commission’s activities was, among other things, the public call for participation in the commission. Here, the Council freed itself from political keys and agreements and nominated a majority of members based on their ideas and desire to work on the restoration of the housing estate.
Despite the fact that the commission addresses the above-mentioned environmental issues, the basis of its activities is the regeneration of a neglected housing estate, Mikulecký added. For this reason, suggestions and helpful ideas concerning the former Avia housing estate (Fryčovická, Ivančická, Krausova, Křivoklátská, Kuželova, Malkovského, Místecká, Nýdecká, Rýmařovská and Tupolevova) are especially welcome.
The Commission meets once a month, and even though the Commission’s meetings are not public, it is possible to request participation at any time. Just write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Minutes of the meeting, information on the work of the commission and other items under discussion are available on the website www.letnany.cz.
