Michaelsen - Scandinavian Living
Dear residents and business owners located above the shops on Hüxstrasse,
As you will surely be informed through the media, we would like to officially inform you that, since June 2, 2012 there have been no cars allowed on Hüxstrasse on Saturdays between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. This information was also distributed by mail on May 16, 2012.
On Saturdays, we therefore ask you to remove your car from the street by 11 a.m. The street will be re-opened for automobile traffic at 6 p.m.
After test runs in 2010 and 2011, the shop owners are very pleased to report that 95% of the 406 households affected tolerate or support a „type of pedestrian zone“ on Saturdays (written survey in 2009). We would like to thank all of the residents for not opposing the correlating mayoral procedure announced on December 28, 2011 (see city newspaper article on January 10, 2012). This allowed the procedure to take legal effect. We, as the shop owners, guarantee that the residents will also be included in advance via written surveys in any future plans and developments at Hüxstrasse. There are currently no plans to extend the pedestrian zone times to other days of the week, since there is no majority to be had (>90%) among the residents and shop owners.
P.S.: Of course, it is possible to organize a move to or from Hüxstrasse on a Saturday, upon prior arrangement. Please remember that the traffic wardens usually arrive around 10:00 a.m., so keep in mind: If you have forgotten the time, even after 11:00 a.m., you must remove your vehicle towards Hüxterdamm.
We are happy to enjoy Mediterranean car-free flair with you every Saturday in Lübeck's most beautiful residential and shopping street!
