She is the Madame of long road

Alexandra road Measured Heeb on the cross. There, where everything is "intensive," as she says. Where is the city of a certain imbalance. In purchase must take. Imbalance is just the condition, the Heeb according to their own job definition must absorb. Failure as part of the job – speaking with Heeb, it seems, as you learn to deal with it.

Today, the city of Zurich presented the final report of the "project night life". In 2015, the city Council has raised the issue on the top level, the strategy focus appointed. Now, three and a half years later, the paper: 18 pages, little Concrete, nothing Spectacular. The latter is the biggest compliment to Heebs work. The stiller your work is, the better. You are standing between two fronts, their claims are incompatible. The spectacle would be as synonymous with escalation.

Enemy blocks

Madame night life in 2010 took over the Job of Rolf Vieli, Mister long road that has been retired. Vieli, as head of the project of the langstrasse Plus with the excesses and aftermath of the open drug scene was busy, it was defined the Job for Heeb. As a "delegate district safety", also in the safety Department settled, their task was now dealing with a big-city problem: the safety in the public space, the Juxtaposition of night and the neighborhood.

an example of this is the long road. A Road train, have formed a kilometre long, where there are two blocks: the neighborhood - there is the night life. "Enmity" to describe the situation best, says Heeb. "On both sides, Fears of passed, they were both frustrated, both of them were hässig each other."

The conflict came to the surface, as at the beginning of 2015, the district appealed with an open letter to the city: The States, found more than 100 signatories, to be untenable. It was a cry for help: We live here! The answer followed immediately: "We also." The Bar and club operator of the online petition "launched long road long road", several Thousand remains signed. "That was the confirmation that we have taken up a topic that moves," says Heeb. The mass of the signatories have given the matter now, however, the weight also demanded on the part of the city.

"A glaring night"

Before the two blocks met at a round table, led by Alexandra Heeb countless conversations. With Affected, with people in the administration, with police officers or employees of the city cleaning. You wanted to know: How deep are the ditches? Where do you? How hardened the fronts? She wanted to know why the people are to each other "hässig", where the frustration came.

A realization: The noise is in the center, Littering ("in the night, Littering is life, especially disgusting", keyword, wild, blunt, and wild-crusher) is also a subject. Frustration arises especially when you have the feeling to be powerless, exposed. And many felt, on both sides. Many were angry at the city, which is doing too little. What has been negotiated, came to an end. For life, for Survival, on the other side. Too much noise destroys quality of life, noise can mean lawsuits for a Beizer the end.

"They listened to each other. This is the most Difficult when you are angry."Alexandra Heeb

Then came what was Alexandra Heeb as a "stark" reminder: the first round table. Fifteen round tables actually situated in the parish of the house of Bullinger and the Church, 120 people from four road trains came, divided into two blocks – many of them, would have been or the leaders of the city loved to yelled at. "The room flirrte," recalls Heeb, "anger, frustration, resentment, fear, all negative emotions were felt."

Somehow, they managed to blow up the blocks that evening. First, all had to be in the room, how you live on the long street. People who knew each other by sight, found that they are neighbors. To stand at all really, you had to talk to each other. Just a little – "what number are you working for?", but all the same. At the tables to make conversation. And especially: "They listened to each other. This is the most Difficult when you are angry," says Heeb.


That was the beginning of a process. The end with the report is just the end from a political point of view: "to live together in a city is a fragile balance," says Heeb. Since it is sufficient that a house is being renovated and all other tenants move in, as not to disturb the Balance. That a new Bar is opening. Or, absurd really, that a road is calmed – and now, suddenly, the party noise is annoying. Then, it is important to negotiate the balance. "This is the only recipe that can be derived from our report, to derive: it is necessary To go on site," says Heeb: "The negotiate living together. Again and again."

That means for your Job: Good work then, if no-one is quite, "but all about 70 percent were" satisfied. Because the two extremes of "re-introduction of police hour" and "complete liberalisation" were incompatible. "As unexciting as this sounds: The compromise has incredible explosive power."
