City announces historic Zurich Parking compromise

It is a big Surprise: The Zurich city Council wants to repeal the historic Parking compromise. He doesn't need the word termination, but writes in a media release on the Revision of the municipal structure plans today Wednesday of a "further development of the historic Parking compromise". This was necessary in order to create in the city centre, more space for pedestrian, Cycling and green spaces as well as trees.

in fact, it would be a termination. Because the city Council will specifically: He sees, that he can reduce the number of above-ground Parking in the City by the year 1990, in future by ten percent – without any compensation. Up to now, this number was regarded as sacrosanct: repealed aboveground Parking in the city centre, had to replace the city in the close by underground. So that is what happened, for example, with the car Parking spaces on the Münsterhof. They were moved into the Park house at the Opera house. With the compromise that the SP and the FDP with each other had agreed, could solve the city at the time, the standoff in transport planning.
