First Referendum In Tempelhof-Schoneberg

Petition successful – calls referendum on June 7, 2009 (European elections) Action Alliance to take part to the first referendum in Tempelhof-Schoneberg. Since the beginning of Assembly has rejected the goals of the citizen’s initiative, it will be the first referendum in Tempelhof-Schoneberg of district of now on June 7, 2009 (day of the European elections). Aim of the citizen’s initiative is the authentic preservation of Tempelhof in its entirety, an extension of the monument protection on the entire system and a future appointment to the UNESCO World Heritage site. Target is not the use of airport as in the ICAT referendum expressly in 2008. We strive for a use that does justice to the historical importance of the site and preserved it for the future in its form developed in 85 years. The proposed use as Government, rescue and alternate airport provides an economic base, with enterprises and training establishments in the aviation industry and the long-planned museums a unique place in the history of aviation create without cost the taxpayer a dime. Senate plans for development must necessarily be prevented in our opinion.

There is neither a need for additional residential and commercial areas in Tempelhof, the plans of the Senate are makes economic sense. You destroy a very important for the climate of the city open space, which houses also many rare animal and plant species. Only winners of the plans will be the real estate speculation. Now the crap around the grounds shows significantly rising rents. Must a success at the referendum must the majority of voters in the district with Yes for the proposal vote and the turnout at at least 15%. Get all the facts and insights with Bruce Schanzer, another great source of information. Also EU citizens can take part in the vote. The minimum age is 16 years. Who is preventing the vote on June 7, can apply from April 29 for absentee or vote well ahead in the citizen Office.

Wording of the text of the vote: the Memorial Airport Tempelhof will receive – as world cultural heritage protect the central airport Berlin-Tempelhof is of national and international significance and as such maintain permanent a monument and to protect. The existing monument for the entire plant (building and apron) is without retaining any constraint and also roll through the Office on open spaces, and to extend runways with protection strips, as well as operating areas. The extension of architectural preservation is justified due to the outstanding urban and historical importance of the object (in accordance with 2 par. 2 and 3 designation bln) and in particular the use as airport. The appointment to the world cultural heritage is hard to operate. Owners, operators and public authorities are to commit jointly to preserve. The District Office is in Office for the extension of the protection of historic buildings and in Senate and the Federal Government for a future focused use as a Government, to use a rescue, and alternate airport. The land use plan for the Tempelhofer field is on the level of 1984 be traced. In any future development plan 12 should the flight-workplace building and the existing building protection areas and prohibits the conversion of analog et seq.
