[Reporter Tang Zaixin/Report from Taichung] Return the grassland of our state hall!

Taichung State Hall, a historical site in Taichung, has been under renovation since August last year. Recently, citizens discovered that the green lawn in the atrium of the State Hall has recently turned into loess. It makes people wonder whether the restoration of historical sites also includes "destruction of turf"?

Since the state hall is the common memory of many Taichung citizens, they could not help complaining to this newspaper, asking the city government to "return the grassland of our state hall."

Please read on...

In this regard, the Cultural Bureau of the Municipal Government stated that since the state hall has been undergoing renovations, the construction vehicles have already caused damage to the lawn, so the manufacturer is required to replace the entire lawn, and on the 15th of this month After the completion of the first phase of the project, the manufacturer will be required to return the beautiful lawn in the atrium of the State Hall during the acceptance inspection. However, because the second phase of the project still needs to be planned, designed and contracted, the lawn will not be able to be appreciated and used by the public before the completion of the entire project.

However, citizens still questioned that the restoration of the state hall is part of the main building. It is reasonable to say that there is no need for engineering vehicles to drive into the atrium. Although the city government said that it would be restored, the original good grass was completely destroyed and then hollowed out and replanted. Heartache is also a waste of public funds. The city government is going to carry out the second phase of the project. Will it destroy the grassland again? It should be more careful.
