"Make dangerous traffic situations safer"
From many of the interviews we have had and the from police figures we see that the following traffic situations should be given priority. We have an annual budget for maintaining roads and when it is up to us, we think the following situations are next.
- The schooltraffic on the Hollandseweg where the Leeuwenborch and the Pantarijn are located
- The route from the Grebbedijk to rowing association Argo/Vada and the port
- The intersection at Stationsstraat infront of the Rabobank
- The road from supermarket Hoogvliet to Haarweg
- The intersection of the Rooseveltweg on the Lawickse Allee
- The crossing on the Churchillweg in front of the Volkswagen dealer
As Connect Wageningen, we believe that safety is one of the most important tasks of the municipality. That is why we are also pleased that Wageningen is a safe city in a very safe country. Wageningen is a unique city, which is why we want to focus on a number of subjects that are specific to Wageningen.
In Wageningen, only € 0.2 million goes from € 93 million to safety and only € 1.5 million to fire safety. Our plans will significantly increase the budget for safety, but it will remain only a small part of the total budget.
Eliminate fraud on housing
There is still too much abuse that has been made us of because Wageningen has a housing shortage. Internationals who think they are renting a room in Wageningen often find out that the room in question does not exist at all. Of the people who have checked their rent with the LSVB-tool to check rent fraud, people pay an average of € 40 per month too much. The student union is busy creating a hotline and there are social advisers that no student has heard of. Perhaps they can offer support, otherwise we would like to take this up ourselves.
Make sure people know where they can enter into an anonymous conversation if they are sexually intimidated
Where do you go when you are sexually intimidated? We did not know it, but we could imagine four people who came into contact with it and did not mention it. Quite often victims do not report because they think or find that they themselves have been wrong. We want everyone to get information easily about where you can talk about these experiences in a confidential and anonymous way.
The local agent must be a familiar face
Although Wageningen is very safe, not everyone feels safe in Wageningen. We think that this is mainly due to the provision of information about safety. Almost no one in Wageningen knows the district officer, while in many of us at home the local police officer is always in the neighborhood paper. We make budget available to share information about security and the local agent with our residents.
Attract young people to a hangout instead of always sending them away
In Wageningen, the policy now plays to drive young people from one place to another. Everywhere they cause nuisance and nowhere are they welcome. In Rhenen they have set up a modern hanging point where young people are welcome. Our plans initially focus on a youth center, but they also have to be able to stay outside.
