New: Cisco Launches Hub Network at Youth Center info/Pages/Cisco.aspxNew: Cisco Launches Hub Network at Youth Center<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/sisko1.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​A new Cisco hub network was launched at the Jerusalem Municipality Youth Center, with President Reuven Rivlin in attendance.</p> Cisco's new hub was launched in a festive event held at the Jerusalem Municipality Youth Center and attended by President Reuven Rivlin and Cisco's CEO and Chairman Chuck Robbins. The hub is part of a hub network created by Cisco and its partners throughout Israel's geographic and social periphery, with the goal of creating an ecosystem of small businesses, startups, freelancers and workers from the periphery who will be able to learn, collaborate and provide various services to businesses across the country.Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat emphasized that, "It is no coincidence that Cisco is launching its hub network in Jerusalem, the capital of innovation and technology, specifically in the city's Youth Center. The Jerusalem Municipality and Cisco are promoting the smart city and are helping businesses and entrepreneurs move into the digital world. Together, we are helping them meet the new challenges of the commerce world. Jerusalem represents 3,000 years of innovation, and our experience shows that whatever succeeds in Jerusalem succeeds all over the world." Head of the Business and Technological Development Administration, Eitan Barzilai, said, "The Jerusalem Municipality's new hubs will provide an important service to the city's business owners – work space, networking, advanced digital tools, use of unattainable technologies, training from the leading experts in the field and unconventional collaborations. That's all we need to march Jerusalem's economy into tomorrow."On the way to becoming a smart city business and digital services applications to reduce traffic jams.Beyond the new hubs, the Jerusalem Municipality is working in collaboration with Cisco to turn Jerusalem into a smart city using advanced, innovative technologies. This will improve the quality of life in the city, provide services to residents and businesses in all sectors, increase security and safety in the city and improve operating efficiency.The technologies which will be integrated into the city will provide residents with a wide range of advanced digital services, such as a WIFI network in the city center, a communications system and cameras that will be monitored by a central control system for smart city management. The cameras will analyze the video images to create a safe city and will provide efficient parking and traffic arrangements in order to reduce traffic congestion. Residents will also receive digital services in municipal libraries, and there will be applications that will benefit businesses, residents and tourists; these projects will later expand to the municipal education system in order to provide specialized education programs suitable to the 21st century.8/30/2018 9:00:00 PM
Barkat to Ministry of Transport: Allocate Resources for the Recruitment of Bus Drivers info/Pages/busdrivers.aspxBarkat to Ministry of Transport: Allocate Resources for the Recruitment of Bus Drivers<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/one.PNG?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>Mayor Barkat participated in a Knesset Economics Committee discussion on public transportation in Jerusalem and called on the Ministry of Transport to allocate resources for the recruitment of bus drivers in order to improve service to residents and visitors.</p> Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat, took part in a Knesset Economics Committee discussion on Jerusalem public transportation this week, noting that, "until completion of the construction of the light rail system, the Ministry of Transport must allocate substantial resources to recruit additional bus drivers in Jerusalem, and to offer bonuses to drivers coming to Jerusalem to improve the service." He also said that, "Jerusalem chose public transportation. It's a good thing we did, because looking forward, there is no substitute for efficient public transportation."Barkat emphasized that, "until completion of the construction of the light rail system in the coming years, Jerusalem's reliance on buses will be absolute. Since the security incidents three years ago, there has been a great shortage of drivers in Jerusalem which has not yet been filled. If Jerusalem's residents are unable to rely on the timely arrival of buses when planning their day, we are going backwards instead of forwards."The Mayor explained that, "in the past, when there was a shortage of police, the Public Security Ministry added 1,200 positions and raised salaries through a special bonus for those serving in Jerusalem – an initiative that provided a quality solution to the city's security needs. Using that analogy, given the current shortage of bus drivers, which harms Egged's operations, the Ministry of Transport needs to allocate substantial resources for use in recruiting additional drivers, and should even offer bonuses to drivers willing to come to Jerusalem in order to improve the service."In addition, Barkat referred to the decision that Jerusalem will be the first city to issue a tender for the operation of a large number of service taxis that will improve the city's public transportation, saying that, "this is important news for residents, and I thank Transport Minister, Israel Katz, and the Chairman of the Economics Committee, MK Eitan Cabel."In his closing remarks, Barkat added that, "In Jerusalem, we have been blessed with very strong residents who know how to raise flags and demand solutions to problems that arise in the field, and I congratulate all of the organizations involved. I believe in the Ministry of Transport, its attentive ear, and its ability to respond to the challenges of Jerusalem during the period of transition to the rail system."3/17/2018 10:00:00 PM

Reducing Pollution in Jerusalem info/Pages/ReducingPollutioninJerusalem.aspxReducing Pollution in Jerusalem<img alt=" " src="/Municipality/Msg_84/PublishingImages/hair.JPG?RenditionID=14" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Jerusalem Municipality is turning the City Center into a “Clean Air” Area.<br>Last week, the City Council Approved a Municipal Bylaw to Reduce Transportation-Caused Air Pollution<br>Barkat: “The new law will improve the health and quality of life of residents”</p>​The Jerusalem Municipality is turning the city center into a “clean air” area, in order to improve the health and quality of life of residents. Last Wednesday, December 27, the City Council approved a municipal bylaw which is intended to allow the enforcement of a “reduced emission area” in the city center.The bylaw is intended to restrict the entry of heavy and polluting vehicles into the city center. Cameras and a computerized system will ensure increased enforcement and allow for the analysis of data through the vehicle’s license plate.The area under the plan includes the city center, from Haneviim St. to the north, Strauss St. and King George St. from the west, Agron St. from the south, and Heil HaHandasa St. from the east, including all roads bordering the area.Additionally, six months after the plan is first implemented, the Municipality intends to expand the plan by turning the Ultra Orthodox business center area into a reduced emission area as well. Introducing other areas in the plan in the future is also being considered.The decision will lead to a significant improvement in the quality of life and air quality in the city center, reduce transportation loads, and turn the center of Jerusalem into one of the areas with the cleanest air – “mountain air as clear as wine”.The plan will be implemented in two stagesIn the first stage, beginning on July 1, 2018, drivers will be sent messages informing them that polluting vehicles are prohibited from entering the reduced emission area; and in the second stage, beginning on January 1, 2019, the prohibition will enter into effect, as will the enforcement of the bylaw, through “optional court appearance” tickets.At the request of the Ministry of Transport, and with the consent of the Director of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, public transportation has been given the opportunity to operate for an additional half year, such that the prohibition against the entry of public vehicles into the reduced emission area will enter into effect on July 1, 2019.The proposed bylaw provides definitions of the terms “reduced emission area” and “polluting vehicle.””Reduced emission area” - An area of roads, the entry to which is marked with road signs specifying restrictions on entry for polluting vehicles. “Polluting vehicle” - Any vehicle weighing over 3.5 tons, containing a diesel engine, with a vehicle registration year until 2005; excluding vehicles in which a particle filter has been installed. In other words, heavy diesel vehicles (over 3.5 tons) will not be permitted to enter the city center area if the year of registration is 2005 or earlier, unless a particle filter has been installed in the vehicle. It should be noted that the proposed bylaw does not apply, in the current stage, to private vehicles (weighing under 3.5 tons).As part of the Municipality’s efforts to improve the environmental and air conditions in the city, on August 30, 2016, the City Council approved an updated multi-year plan to reduce transportation-caused pollution in Jerusalem, including a decision to declare a “reduced emissions area” in central Jerusalem. The above included an agreement that stipulated that the Ministry of Environmental Protection will provide assistance to the Municipality in the amount of NIS 5 million for the current plan, as well as an additional NIS 5 million to expand the plan and to build nighttime parking lots for public transportation, including electrical charging infrastructure for buses, by the end of September 2018.Additional information on the Municipality’s efforts to reduce air pollutionThe Jerusalem Municipality is acting on many fronts to reduce air pollution in the capital. The construction of the light rail system in the city, and the reduction of entry of private vehicles into the city center, have led to energy savings and reduction of fuel use, as has the implementation of a patrol unit to identify polluting vehicles, which is working to take vehicles that pollute above the permitted standard off the road. The Municipality has installed hundreds of bicycle parking facilities throughout the city, as part of the program to encourage bicycle use and reduce private vehicle use. Additionally, the Municipality is developing bike paths throughout the city, which are leading to a reduction in the use of polluting energy, and is operating a system of shuttles to encourage employees to forgo the use of their private vehicles to get to work. The Municipality has also installed solar energy-powered street lighting fixtures, and has installed solar panels on the rooftops of public buildings and schools in the city, in order to generate green energy and reduce the use of polluting materials.Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat “Transportation is the main source of air pollution in city centers and population centers. Air pollution endangers the population and leads to an increase in respiratory, cardiovascular and arterial diseases, while also increasing the risk of cancer and early death. The new bylaw will improve the health and quality of life of residents.”12/31/2017 10:00:00 PM

Also, as stated, "I Love JLM" puts Jerusalem in line with other capitals of love all over the world.Mayor Nir Barkat emphasized that "Everyone loves Jerusalem - and Jerusalem loves everyone - the new installation symbolizes the unique place Jerusalem has in each and every one, and I invite the city's residents, visitors and tourists to visit Jerusalem, to spend time here and to photograph themselves by the special installation." After last year, when we decided to put love on the map - this year we decided to put love in the center. According to the Jerusalem artist chosen to create the installation, Yarel Yair, "The choice to design the installation in a unique way compared to other cities around the world stems from the desire to present the uniqueness of Jerusalem, with inspiration from modern urban works around the world and similar installations in Amsterdam, New York and Toronto. It attempts to communicate with the roots and the glorious past of the city of Jerusalem. "The choice of placing the love installation in Zion Square was made following the activities led by the Eden Company to encourage and nurture the art, culture and leisure scene in the renewed city center of Jerusalem.Deputy CEO of Eden (Jerusalem Economic Development Company), Lior Bar Dor, noted that "this is another initiative which is part of the upgrading of public spaces in Jerusalem and their transformation into an active, attractive experience. In recent weeks, everyone has been wandering around downtown along a series of special installations which have changed the face of the area. From the solar cinema and the screening of free movies for the whole family, through the umbrellas on Yoel Salomon Street to The Playback Orchestras that are activated by the people in the street. These special installations not only upgrade the city's cultural life, but contribute to its economic development and trade in these areas."For more information about the special installations and activities in downtown Jerusalem click here8/9/2017 9:00:00 PM
