1. Why do you think it is important to surround this building with another element, to make it stand out? We are talking about the store.

 

I would like to see an architectural solution which incorporates this building in the ensemble of the space or area, because now it is a totally different pattern of color on what the old village Sibiel should be. Not necessarily a fence, not to be misunderstood. (Răcuciu)

 

If it is possible to annihilate the presence of this building and this can be done by you through an ingenious idea, and I am sure that you will find one. (Stancă)

 

2. I understand that the land, on which the store is build is leased, but the building owner is informed, consulted and supports the idea of the contest, or will we encounter some opposition from his part? At least to agree and not to raise obstacles.

 

The building owner came with a request for fencing, and we stopped issuing any documents (building permit) because of the ongoing competition. As mentioned earlier, we wish to find a solution to annihilate this building and of course the owner will participate financially to the around the building. There is no question of demolishing the building. We will find a solution for the owner to agree and we will mediate any discussions that may occur.

 

Another remark to the 2-nd question: The leased land is larger than the area where the store is located. That’s why the owner came with this request to fence it in, but the decision, if it will be a fence or just a surrounding belongs to the administration. Here we rely on your solutions. (Racuciu)

 

The idea is to fit, just think, to be like something which comes from God and not man-made, you understand me? I don’t have a high expectation, but think about this way of thinking. (Stancă)

 

3. The footbridge would pass through a private property? Is it a private or public footbridge?

 

Public In the documentation part of the competition you will find the project of the fence, mentioned by Mr. Mayor. In this project you will also find a delimitation of the land and more information about this building.

 

4. Do you intend to reassess the concession contract, meaning that: only leasing the land under the building and the remaining land is rented for terraces, leaving the area in the back strictly for furnishing?

 

Leased are 320m, the park has 3 no. in the land Registry. We can negotiate with those who have the leasing right that the immobile remains immobile, but that the adjacent zone could be used continuously for the public. (Răcuciu)

 

5. Which is the flooding rate of the river? Which was the highest level?

 

The highest level was of 1.20 m, lower than the road (once in 60 years). The water did never exceed the footbridges. (Stancă)

 

6. Do you intend to replace the power grid?

 

It is not included in the budget that we proposed. We do not take into account these interventions for this year because the costs are very high and Electrica Company does not provide any funds. For 2013 we finance this project for the central area and we want to replace a part of the infrastructure of the main streets. (Răcuciu)

 

7. In some areas the riverbanks are regularized. Do you see any intervention on the river(bed), in the sense that the pavement could be extended, the public area towards the river shall be adjusted or left as it is natural, how do you see this as a community?

 

The river is largely regularized and is bordered with those sustaining walls, so we do not take into account such an investment in the near future. (Răcuciu)

 

Observation: We discussed, as we take into account infrastructure projects, and we are located in a mountain region, to make the pavement with river stones. The image of the village is destroyed by using asphalt or concrete stones, so that the solution we have is to use river stones, because we have the material and the people with the know-how. If you have suggestions, we gladly appreciate them. (Răcuciu)

 

8. There is a desire upon collaboration on a voluntary basis or with people in the village; under these conditions cost estimation is difficult. It is based on standards. How can be everything evaluated.

 

The amount provided for the central area is 123,000 Lei, including also the planning. For the implementation we have foreseen 109,000 Lei and this is the amount on which we have to rely on.

 

9. Have you made any cost estimations for this area?

 

We have not done any cost estimations. We are working now to establish the budget, which will be approved after the approval of the state budget. This is the amount of money that we are able to support through the local budget. At the request of OAR we have established a certain amount, which had been proposed to the City Council and got approved. (Racuciu)

 

10. Have you made this contest in order to establish a strategic plan for the next years? Even if you won´t replace the infrastructure and won´t make all the desired changes, because of financial reasons, the competition should take into account the changes that will take place in 15-20 years. The redevelopment of the center is desired in this regard?

 

The solution that can be implemented with the established amount must look like a complete and fully done objective for several years, allowing modifications along the way, but in any case not within the next 3-4 years. (Răcuciu) Observation of a participant: after the end of the concession period (97-95 years, or how many years are left), the village will look the same, just the center of the village will be better shaped, so that some areas could be excluded.

 

11. The fence in front of the shop can be demolished?

 

Yes, it can be demolished, there is no problem. (Răcuciu)

 

12. If the question of volunteering is raised, it would be interesting to know what crafts are still practiced in the village, who knows what (wood, stone)?

 

I will send a list of handcrafts activities which are still practiced in the village and in the area, there is also an Association "Reuniunea Meseriaşilor " in Sălişte and this list can be also provided.
