Third Tapijnkazerne dialogue session
On Monday, 18 April, the new draft design for Tapijn was presented in the third dialogue session. The meeting took place at the Tapijnkazerne grounds. The new draft design is based on the reactions of interested parties that were collected in an earlier dialogue session and the city round (February and March).
Once again, there was great interest in this session. The architect presented the new draft design to more than 80 people and it was well received by the attendees. They saw that their reactions to the first draft design had been taken seriously and that many of them had been incorporated in the new design. The comments that were received about this new draft design on 18 April will be further developed by the architects, together with interested parties and the users. Then it will be up to the municipal council to take a decision.
Another session will take place on 14 June (preliminary schedule) and a council round will take place on 21 June (preliminary schedule). The final design, including the costs, will be submitted to the municipal council before the summer. The project is expected to break ground in mid-2017.
