Forestland or how a festival transforms a tourist destination

first_imgAnother Forestland festival ended in the heart of Međimurje, and the next edition of this exceptional pearl of continental tourism was announced only in 2019, and one of the largest festivals on the continent celebrated its sixth birthday. The organizers say: we brought over 60 DJs, we played over 48 hours of good music, we were visited by over 7.000 visitors.The period from June to September is the beginning of the tourist season, but also of famous domestic festivals. Everywhere along the coast, partygoers, escapists and other people who want to escape from the monotony of everyday life gather. Until a few years ago, the summer period was a dead zone for the interior of the continents and one can still sometimes hear the story of those times, not so long ago from now, when cities, including our main one, literally gaped empty. The entire party and festival, we can rightly call it, subculture appeared almost out of nowhere, from hidden coves and exclusive foreign festivals, very quickly outgrew the bandages and became the standard.We are currently still in the stage of recovering the lawn on Poljud and trying to live with debauchery on Pag, and while we are bombarded from all over with promotional messages of the festival throughout the region, one completely innovative festival story turned 6 this year. Now that the impressions have subsided, the organizers say: we brought over 60 DJs, we played over 48 hours of good music, we were visited by over 7.000 visitors. There is no “natural” beach in this story, although the air still smells of pine, the sea is green, and vines are grown instead of olives.Forestland, which has been held in Brezje in Međimurje since 2013, celebrated its sixth birthday from 13 to 15 July this year. Friday the 13th was a happy day for the Forestland organizers. For the first time in its six years, the festival has grown into a multi-day event with the full support of the local community, regional government, international partners and musicians. Quite a success for an event created from youthful dreams to breathe a breath of life into the sleepy Međimurje region during the endless summer. Forestland carved its story modestly, with only a few hundred visitors eager to connect nature, art and people in a unique way. The festival is, they pointed out on their official pages, over time became synonymous with inspiration, dreams, unity and the realization of the impossible. This summer story also has its own Christmas edition, namely Winterstory of Forestland which is announced for December 22nd.The infrastructure of the festival does not lag behind related events in the world. In addition to staying in nature, sleeping under the stars and simply love and togetherness, the festival offered the partygoers three stages: Main stage, Forestroom and Beach stage. Who said that in the middle of the forest it can’t be like the sea, the thought is the guiding principle of the Beach stage concept, so with the daily program, visitors could relax in the pools with cocktails.The HEP-sponsored Forestroom is designed on the boilerroom principle for the most die-hard fans whose endurance has been put to the test during a 12-hour rave. Famous faces from the party scene played on all three stages: Mark Sixma, Zonderling, Petar Dundov, Torres, PEZNT, YAKKA, Paul Spakres, Deova, Steve Allen, Eloquentia, DJ Yaksa and DJ Yin and Flash Finger straight from faraway China, but and many others. There was, of course, something else for everyone, and everything was properly recorded on social networks (because if it’s not on them, then it didn’t even happen), Bonbon took care of it, preparing his own chill zones for visitors.KRESO BISHOP, Forestland: The formula for success is to surround yourself with capable peoplePhoto: Krešo Biškup, ForestlandTwo years ago, the Forestland Festival was voted as one of the 47 Ambassadors of Electronic Music, and in the same year it won the Best Croatian EDM Festival Award for 2016.The secret of the success of this festival was revealed to us by the organizer of Forestland, Krešo Biškup “Work, effort and good will, as well as a good team. It is important to surround yourself with capable people, click with them, plan and hope for the best. It just matched us. In addition, Međimurje is a very high quality and positive area. I think there is room here for progress and for similar festivals, and specifically the key to our success is storytelling and philosophy. On the one hand, there is a lot of will in the local community and a lot of effort from us organizers. The whole set of circumstances needed for the project to come to life happened to us”Međimurje and the north of Croatia are no longer incidental locations on the way to the Adriatic, but slowly but surely, using the available natural and other potentials, are becoming increasingly attractive destinations just for planning a summer vacation. Although it is sometimes left out of the tourist map of Croatia, Međimurje has twice been declared a European destination of excellence. Hundreds of thousands of visitors a year visit Špancirfest, Porcijunkulovo kolo and Renaissance festival. These are examples of good practice, successful thanks to the efforts of individuals and despite many difficulties, from which each of us can learn something or at least give them more media attention for all the efforts invested in the painstaking development of continental tourism.”Continental tourism has recently increased in Međimurje. We have several excellent hotels, and the spa of St. Martin work great and therefore this type of tourism coincides with our initiative. It would probably be much easier for us if we chose the pre- or post-season, it is currently at its peak and our goal is for as many people as possible to visit Međimurje, and then the rest of Croatia.”, Concluded the Bishop.In the heart of Međimurje, not on the sea, and far from all sponsors as everywhere on the continent, to make one such festival that attracts over 7.000 visitors from all over Europe, is more than a fantastic success.

Sea Bright Borough Tackles Affordable Housing

first_imgAt the Feb. 5 meeting of the Borough Council, the governing body established a mandatory set-aside for future residential development projects in Sea Bright.Photo by Chris Rotolo The governing body mandated that all new multi-family residential developments of five or more units will be required to provide an affordable housing set-aside as follows: Establishing an affordable housing plan will also protect the borough from builder’s remedy lawsuits. Towns that do not have court-approved affordable housing plans are susceptible to lawsuits from developers who can propose affordable housing developments in any section of a municipality. Establishing an affordable housing plan can allow the borough to dictate affordable housing zoning overlays in the town. The proposed project on the Gaiters site was delayed by Super Storm Sandy, which made landfall in October 2012. Work has yet to begin on the proposed project. Councilman Charles H. Rooney said developers have obtained all necessary approvals. The development fees can be attached to non-residential development projects and used to complement federal, state and local monies to increase and maintain the borough’s supply of safe and sanitary affordable housing units. A second ordinance was also passed to establish affordable housing development fees in the borough. The ordinance allows municipalities under the jurisdiction of the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH), with a court-approved affordable housing spending plan, to organize an affordable housing trust fund. At Tuesday night’s meeting, the Sea Bright Borough Council passed an ordinance to amend and supplement Sea Bright’s land use code to establish regulations and a mandatory affordable housing set-aside in connection with future residential development projects in the borough. The totals put the borough’s unmet need at 60 affordable units. According to data published in 2015 by the Fair Share Housing Center, in the previous round (1987 to 1999) Sea Bright’s initial obligation was set at 37 affordable units. The borough’s capped present need is 11 units, and its capped prospective need is 12 units. • A minimum of 15 percent of the number of for-rent units proposed in a development application must be affordable units.center_img • A minimum of 20 percent of the number of for-sale housing units proposed in a development application must be designated as affordable units. Mark A. Leckstein, borough council president, and Mayor Dina Long said establishing these ordinances will allow Sea Bright to start formulating a suitable affordable housing plan. A previous builder’s remedy lawsuit levied against the borough was settled in March 2011, when municipal officials reached an agreement with the owner of Gaiters, a former restaurant at the foot of the Route 36 Highlands Bridge. The borough council memorialized an ordinance to create a new affordable housing zone on the site. These proposed affordable units can be offered on-site or off-site as long as they are provided within the borough. These newly established guidelines will impact all future developments in Sea Bright, including a proposed multimillion dollar riverfront housing project that was introduced this past December at a special meeting. That project proposes 44 new housing units, including a 20 percent affordable housing set-aside, and could bring with it more than 40,000 square feet of public green space on the bank of the Shrewsbury River. “It’s mandated by the state. We have to do this,” Leckstein said. “We don’t have a plan at this time, but now we can move forward with planning to fulfill our obligation.” SEA BRIGHT – The governing body is planning to meet the state-mandated affordable housing obligation within the borough. New Jersey is currently in its third round of Fair Share Housing Obligation, a cycle that began in 1999 and is due to end in 2025, when fourth round guidelines and obligations will be established.last_img read more
