Many people in konigsberg are concerned about the accessibility of the cobblestones in the old town. Older people in particular have a hard time on the uneven ground. Even moving around with a rollator is not easy in some places. In order to improve the accessibility of the old town pavement through structural measures, such as the installation of a walking lane for wheelchairs and walkers, city councilor frank slawik had submitted a written request for this topic to be discussed in the city council.
In this regard, as he informed the city council at the meeting on tuesday evening, mayor claus bittenbrunn held initial preliminary discussions with the lower monument preservation authority (district office), the monument preservation authority in schloss seehof and with the government of lower franconia at a meeting at the district office. It became clear that the development of a comprehensive network of paths would be best planned by means of an urban development inspection in order to obtain subsidies. Because, according to mayor bittenbrunn, "the whole thing will not be cheap." however, it would require comprehensive planning and implementation as an overall project lasting several years. It is a question of financial resources that the city has not had at its disposal in recent years.
