Investor seeks closed concession on maritime domain as a precondition for renovation of Haludovo hotel complex

first_imgHotel complex Haludovo in Malinska from once the best symbol of our tourism to a mockery that has stood and fallen for decades. But, finally, some things are moving from the dead point, ie there has been talk about the activation of this attractive property and the former symbol of the island of Krk.Namely, the Mayor of Malinska-Dubašnica, Robert Anton Kraljić, held a meeting with Mr. Ara A. Abramyan, President of the Supervisory Board of Haludovo, and the meeting presented the intentions of investors to implement the renovation of the hotel complex Haludovo in the amount of 250 to 300 million euros .Great news, but there’s one catch. The investor has one specific precondition regarding the investment of the Haludovo hotel, and it is a request for by approving a closed concession on a maritime domain from Hotel Maestral to Fisherman’s Village. I emphasize closed concessions, which would mean the loss of the coastal promenade, ie the coastal area, our most valuable resource.As Kraljić points out in his statement, the intention of the owner of Halud is to obtain a closed concession with the explanation that this enables a high level of security and top quality offer for hotel guests. “As the mayor of Malinska – Dubašnica, aware of all possible consequences of these long-term decisions, I call on all locals to consider a closed concession, which it brings us positively, and what we lose if such a regime of space use is accepted. On the one hand, the investor firmly assures us that this is the only and biggest obstacle to his upcoming investment, and on the other hand we must be aware that we will lose the coastal promenade that stretches from Hotel Maestral to Ribarsko selo and numerous beaches, which deepens the problem of congestion. narrow coastal area, and the local community loses contact with a significant part of the unique area of ​​our Municipality. Promises for the realization of the Haludovo project were made in previous years, but unfortunately the investments were not realized, which gives rise to a real fear of repeating the same practice. The position of the Municipality is known, we are not in favor of a completely closed concession, and we are willing to discuss a partially closed concession like the one in Čikat Bay on Mali Lošinj. ” Kraljević points out and invites everyone to get actively involved in the public debate on this topic, which is a “cancer wound” of the entire municipality and tourism in general.Public hearing soon. Get involved! As announced, a public hearing should be organized soon, in the period from November 02nd to 15th. 2018, which will be attended by Mr. Arom A. Abramyan, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Haludov, who will personally present the project of the “new Haludov” to the wider community, and point out all the reasons and justification for seeking a closed concession. The exact date and place of the exhibition will be announced to the public at a later date.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”Source: F-Stop Productionlast_img read more

first_imgStudents were unable to connect to the USC wireless network as early as 8 a.m. until approximately 5 p.m. Monday because of technical issues during an upgrade.Kevin Durkin, ITS director of communications and marketing, said the upgrade was made in response to an expected increase of USC wireless during the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this weekend.“We were increasing the capacity of the USC wireless network in anticipation of the additional number of people we expect this weekend for the L.A. Times Festival of Books,” Durkin said. “During the upgrade, we encountered technical issues which have been resolved [as of 5:00 p.m.]. The wireless network is back up, but slow. We anticipate the technical issues to be fully resolved after the hour.”By 6 p.m., most areas around campus returned to full wireless support.The “USC wireless plus” network, which was rolled out in the last year, work throughout the day. Durkin said students should use the wireless plus network because the network is encrypted, making it safer to use.“We encourage all USC account holders to use wireless plus because it’s an encrypted network,” Durkin said.Students can find out how to use the wireless plus network by going to the USC ITS website here. Generally, Mac users (Snow Leopard or higher) and iPad users can use their Wi-Fi and log into the system with their student username and password. Those running Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows XP must download a connection plug-in from software.usc.edu and then adjust their wireless settings.“Only USC account holders can use wireless plus,” Durkin said. “It’s faster, it’s encrypted and it’s available only to USC account holders.”Nethika Ariyasinghe, a sophomore majoring in biomedical engineering, said that she was unable to access one of her online course books to do schoolwork because of the connectivity issues.“I tried checking my email and it didn’t work, then I couldn’t open my book,” Ariyasinghe said. “I restarted and restarted my computer like a million times, and finally the internet came on after quite some time.”last_img read more
