With this motion (NR.482), the coalition reforms the commercial special use for outdoor gastronomy. Especially after the restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic, we do not want to further inconvenience restaurants regarding the use of space. At the same time, space for pedestrians should not be excessively blocked by restaurants. Our suggested compromise between these two interests is that at least half of the public space of a square is preserved for pedestrians. In return, restaurants will be allowed to use parking spaces in front of their businesses for a small fee for guests. In this way, we preserve cultural offerings in the city while at the same time ensuring a fairer distribution of traffic space.

Volt Frankfurt: the political party
Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.
Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions.
We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
