Survey information finding that 47 percent of the residents of Bratislava are in favour of preserving the entire complex of the city's Culture and Leisure Park (PKO) on the banks of the Danube River is an important piece of information, Bratislava mayor Milan Ftáčnik told a press conference on June 23, the TASR newswire reported.
A survey of 600 representative respondents was conducted by the Focus polling agency between June 6 and 9.
Twenty-two percent advocated tearing down and constructing a new PKO, while another 28 percent wanted to preserve part of the area, TASR wrote. Another 3 percent declined to comment.
The city council is expected to propose on June 30 that it should retain PKO as a whole, with plans to revamp the area gradually. The land on which PKO stands is owned by Henbury Development, a private company, which seeks to build a complex called the New PKO.
