dicision-making, and could be taken on in short notice.
The intended plan of building 15 houses was translated in renovating, rearanging and expension of the
already existing building on Roma territory.

a room for receiving of homeless people and visitors without a place to stay. Furthermore there will be
build an office for police and security.

the paving of an entry road and parking space.

changing of the plan.
