Local Issues

City of Split yesterday witnessed so far the most spectacular showdown between government and concerned citizens. HEP, national power company, wants to build new power station in the middle of Dobri, one of Split's oldest neighbourhoods and, ironically, very close to HEP regional HQ. Local residents are up in arms over that and yesterday they tried to prevent the start of construction. I must say that I support residents, although not out of environmental concerns. The new power station is going to be built at the very site now used as local parking lot. With parking space in Split reduced, gridlocks are going to be even less bearable than they are today.
