The city of Hallein (Tennengau) is preparing the redesign of the Pernerinsel in the Salzach, where the venerable buildings of the former saltworks are also located as a cultural center. A separate project for the participation of the population should provide concepts. The aim is long-term planning up to 2050.
The project is scheduled to start next week. Title: “Ripe for the Island”. It should be an open process with plenty of room for ideas, concrete representatives of the city government and the tourism association in Hallein.
Many questions, many ideas
From Wednesday to Saturday next week – from April 27th to 30th – the future concept will be discussed in the Alte Schmiede on the Pernerinsel. What should the island look like in 2050? What should she offer? Which traffic solutions are necessary? What opportunities does the project bring for urban development?
Such questions are discussed at workshops, lectures, guided tours and an “island brunch”. Anyone who wants to bring in ideas is cordially invited, says Hallein Mayor Alexander Stangassinger (SPÖ).
Last year, notary Claus Spruzina from Halle drew attention with his vision for the Pernerinsel. He advocates a technology and cultural center with young startups, creative companies and a campus of the University of Salzburg as the core. The municipal council is now playing on this ball and involving the Hallein population.
It starts next Wednesday
The start of the public participation project “Pernerinsel 2050” is next Wednesday at 7 p.m. There is a keynote speech by the internationally renowned urban planner Stefan Netsch.
