Dispute between the City of Dubrovnik and Excelsa nekretnina resolved: The Dubrovnik cable car starts operating

first_imgAlthough ATMs are located in private premises, the fact is that they disturb the views of the historic core and the UNESCO protected site, and thus disturb the view of the same. “These are significant funds for the City of Dubrovnik that we will spend on improving the infrastructure, starting from the sports one onwards”, Said the Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, adding that the City of Dubrovnik will earn around 10 million kuna annually from the concession fee. This decision was made due to pressure and protests from the citizens of Dubrovnik, who expressed their dissatisfaction due to “ATMophobia” in the old town. They placed flowers in front of ATMs in protest. At yesterday’s 23rd session of the City Council, an out-of-court settlement was reached between the City of Dubrovnik and Excelsa nekretnina doo as well as the Decision on granting a concession, thus creating all conditions for the continuation of the popular Dubrovnik cable car. the city of Dubrovnik was closed this year. Certainly, as the Dubrovnik cable car was one of the TOP attractions of all visitors to Dubrovnik, and as its closure caused the most damage to Dubrovnik as a destination. So resolving this dispute is certainly great news for Dubrovnik. ” The fine is 10 thousand kuna per legal entity and two thousand kuna for the responsible person. Penalties will be written every day because the law allows it, so we will see if it suits anyone to receive a 300 thousand kuna fine”Pointed out the Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, writes Dubrovnik Diary. ATMs are leaving the old town Certainly a move to praise and finally the introduction of order in Dubrovnik. When we talk about sustainable development, we are certainly talking about the space and identity that we must preserve, which is our most valuable resource. Unfortunately, we are a decade behind, if not more, behind such a mindset, but the example from Dubrovnik is proof that it is still not too late and that we can still save what can be saved. The decision made it forbidden to install ATMs as well as other devices and advertising cabinets, and that the existing ATMs must be removed within 30 days, unless the owner receives the approval of the Conservation Department of the Ministry of Culture. Dubrovnik councilors also adopted amendments to the Decision on Communal Order, which should ring ATMs in the historic center if the owners do not obtain the approval of the conservator. The dispute between the City of Dubrovnik and the company Excelsa nekretnina, which are the owners of the famous Dubrovnik cable car, has finally been resolved.
