Balıkesir is being rebuilt with hundreds of projects, most of which will start in 2018. Zekai Kafaoğlu, the Mayor of Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality who prepared many projects that will touch every sector from economy to trade, from health to farming, from 7 to 70, introduced the projects that will change the face of the city with a press conference held at Balkonuk Center.
Being one of the most important cities of Marmara Region with its unique location, agricultural production capacity, energy resources and natural beauties, Balıkesir has taken a big development attack with hundreds of projects to be realized in 2018. Zekai Kafaoğlu, the Mayor of the Metropolitan Municipality, told the press about the projects related to the subject. Da Balıkesir is spread over a wide geography. To put it simply, the 3 Istanbul will fit in the area of Balıkesir.
Especially our population is scattered over most of our area. For example, Kayseri has a population of 1 million 300 thousand, but 1 million 100 thousand of them live in the city center. 200 thousand are in districts and villages. Eskişehir has a population of 800 thousand, but 700 thousand live in the city center. Only 100 thousand live in districts and villages. Balıkesir has a population of 1 million 200 thousand. While there is a population of 300 thousand in the center, our population of 900 thousand live in districts and rural neighborhoods. When our geography is wide, we need to make a lot of effort and move quickly. We haven't stopped since the day we arrived. We toured all of the districts. During these visits with citizens sohbet We had the chance to listen to them and learn their requests firsthand. We came together with the mayors, district governors and headmen of our districts. We listened to their problems, demands, requests and desires. We visited our ongoing projects and saw how they were doing. Later, together with my colleagues, we blended all these and determined our projects that prioritize the primary needs of our people. "
NO GIRL IS GIVEN TO THE COVER
Adding that the priority needs of the citizens are prioritized in all the projects to be carried out, Metropolitan Mayor Zekai Kafaoğlu continued his words as follows; “First of all, when planning our projects; We attached great importance to justice. Whichever service we provide to our citizens living in Bandırma, we are in trouble of providing that service to Dursunbey. We wanted to be in Sindirgi, Kepsut, or Savastepe, in the center of Balikesir. Of course, while doing all of these things, it was necessary to calculate Balikesir's progress towards becoming a city worthy of dignity and behaving decently. In order for us to progress, for a city to develop, for a city to develop, for a city to achieve its goals, that city must be at peace. People should be peaceful, institutions should be peaceful, institutions should be peaceful. Where there is a fight, there is no fertility. Nobody comes to the fight. To complement this phenomenon with a saying from our ancestors; "There is no girl where there is a fight." For this, we have to finish the fight. Here we came to Balıkesir to end the fight. Mr. President appointed us for this. We came to embrace the whole of Balıkesir, 1 million 200 thousand people. Local administrators, mayors' name used to be noodle. So it was the person that everyone was sure of. We will try to be worthy of this attribute, this qualification. We will embrace everyone who voted and did not vote for us. We will be at everyone's disposal. Mayors are not people who look down. Mayors are not imperative. Mayors are the dominant people serving the city, they are the servant people. We look at this issue from this perspective, we approach it this way. What does even our president say? He says we are servants of this nation. We are also servants of Balıkesir. We will continue to serve you until the end of our tenure. ”
LOVE WORKING LOVE
Stating that he worked hard in order not to leave the place, the neighborhood we did not go, with the duty of the Metropolitan Municipality he took over on 7 November, Metropolitan Mayor Zekai Kafaoğlu said that he felt devoted to this difficult task and said: “We are in love with Balıkesir. We do what we do with love, we do it with love, we do it with passion. We feel dedicated. If you do not feel dedicated to what you are doing, you cannot succeed. If those things don't go to sleep at night, you can't be successful at that job. In order to be successful, you have to give yourself to your business. So much so that you can not be successful if you spend these times pleasantly or use them for authority, position, and reign. In order to be successful, you must absolutely feel dedicated. We also work with love. What did they say; working with love was tired. We start at the morning prayer, I do not remember that I went to bed before 02:00 - 02:30 at night. Everyone is asking; "Aren't you tired?" I say, “No, I'm not tired. I say we are like an Arab horse, we open as we run. ” By Allah's leave, no one can prevent us from running as long as Allah Almighty gives health and wellness. We will continue to run, we will not leave a place where we do not stand. ”
FACES OF OUR PEOPLE STARTED
Zekai Kafaoğlu stated that they identified the shortcomings on the one hand and that they were listening to the demands of the citizen on the other hand. Zekai Kafaoğlu, who was one of the subjects that the people complained the most, was the high amount of water bills. 25 percent of the centers immediately, the 50 in the countryside said they went to the discount. President Kafaoğlu stated that these discounts contributed not only to Balıkesir people but also to citizens living in other provinces of our region. Adı When we went down on water bills, other provinces could not raise. He was able to raise at a very small rate. For example, the agenda of the Manisa Metropolitan City Council has reached the 10 water hike. City Council Members, by showing us as examples; Iler When the discounts between 25 and 50 in Balıkesir are discounted indirim, they rejected the hike. The rent prices are the same as wholesalers. We have become a wholesaler of European standards, but the shopkeepers we put into are unhappy. Immediately we went to discount rates at the rate of 30. We came to this task to make our people happy. As the Metropolitan Municipality, we said Balıkes Happy and Peaceful City Balıkesir Balıkes in our slogan. Now the faces of our people started to laugh. Artık
2 THOUSAND BODY KILOMETER ASPHALT
Kafaoğlu stated that they will establish 6 new Organized Industrial Zone in Balıkesir, which is one of the locomotive cities of Marmara Region with its 3 small industrial site, 16 mixed 3 Special Industrial Zone. On the one hand, the urgent needs will be resolved by 2, on the other hand, they will be equipped with the projects in accordance with the vision of Balıkesir 2019 said: UM In our organized industrial zones, we can say that we have no place thanks to the latest investments. We need to open new areas to attract new investments to Balıkesir. Areas to be expropriated for Balıkesir OIZ were determined. OSB activities are continuing at full speed in our districts.
We saw in the district and rural neighborhood visits that we still have more citizens in the mud. For this reason, 2018 year was declared asphalt year. The 2000 kilometer asphalt will be completed before the end of this year. X
PREPARING BALIKESİR TO 2023
President Zekai Kafaoğlu, who made statements on the planned projects to be completed in Balıkesir, ended his speech by; "As I said before. While aiming to complete our urgent needs, our projects which are essential to 2019; 2023 Balıkesir Cumhurbaşkanımız the target as a shining star in turkey we need to do our best. We have made our determination to prepare a long-term 2023 Balıkesir to Turkey. We provided the necessary contacts. We continue on our way with policies and projects that are directed towards the future, not by the policy of saving the day. We have taken the necessary measures. Briefly speaking; The projects we aim to complete by 2019 are as follows. One of the most important problems of Balıkesir is no doubt the traffic problem. In order to relieve traffic, bridged intersections will be made, the shores will be overhauled and 5 will be rebuilt 2.000 kilometers this year.
Social housing projects will be much easier to host now. With the works to be carried out on agriculture and tourism, it will bring added value to Balıkesir and the city will change.
We needed projects that would be suitable for Balıkesir's structure and that would produce our products produced in our province directly to our consumers. To this end, we have produced a project called Rural Development Chain considering that we are at the forefront of agriculture.
In the city center and in our towns, we found that the public needed parks where people could breathe. For this we have produced new park projects. We would like to offer all the maintenance of the existing parks and to offer the parks to the service of the Balıkesir with the revised projects, where the demands of the more modern, more modern people are at the forefront.
With this and hundreds of similar projects, we are starting to bring the service to our citizens. These authorities are service authorities. As the Mayor, it is our primary duty to serve our citizens. However, our political experience has shown us that serving alone is not enough. Our people want and will want service. This is their most natural right. But our citizen wants to see this clearly; Seeing their chosen mayor next to him, directly with him sohbet wants to tell about his problem. He wants him to be with their president on his happy day on the day of pain. In short, citizens want to see themselves being put in place. We opened our doors to the public on the first day we took office to show this. I became a president that they could easily reach. We have hosted nearly 40 thousand visitors so far.
I did not visit the citizens to touch, listen to them to the districts. When I had the opportunity, I went to the rural neighborhoods, I was with our citizens and we continue to be.
We are grateful for the intense interest shown both to me and to our Municipality. We love Balıkesir and Balıkesir very much. Our door is always open to our doors. ”
SOLUTION FOR TRAFFIC PROBLEMS WITH BRIDGE JUNCTION
Problems in traffic flow, one of the most important problems of Balıkesir, will be largely eliminated with cross-over junction and overpasses across the province.
The 2 of the interchanges will be built in the city center. The Governor's Bridge Interchange and the Courthouse Junction Center will seriously relieve traffic. Erdek Köprülü Junction, Bandırma Entrance Intersection Akçay Köprülü Intersection will organize the flow of traffic in these districts.
The courthouse will be built in front of the courthouse in Altıeylül District. 315 meters long, 20 will be meters wide.
There will be an underpass at the Bandırma Intersection. 400 meters long, 28 will be meters wide.
Along with the 4 overpass that will be built at various points of the city, traffic problems will be settled to a great extent.

Overpasses will be built at the Second Industrial Door, GOP Cement Factory and the Old Kepsut Road Basmakas.
ALL WAYS WILL BE TAKEN
Road construction and repair work in the 2018 year will gain a great acceleration. 40 percent of existing roads across the province will be renewed. 2000 km printing, asphalt and stone printing road work will be done in total. All of the districts, neighborhoods and rural neighborhoods throughout the province will be overhauled and the problematic road will not be left. No more rural areas in Balıkesir will be unpaved. No foot of our citizens will touch the mud.
SOLUTION IS PROVIDED FOR THE PARKING PROBLEM
One of the biggest problems of developing cities today is parking problem. In order to minimize this problem, the construction of multi-storey car park for 2.000 vehicles in Karesi and Altıeylül districts is started. Car parks with hundreds of vehicles will significantly reduce the need for parking in the city.
AUTOMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM UNDER THE CITY CONTROL
Automation Management System is established in the city center. The 20 intersection at critical points will be managed with smart city systems. Smart Automation System will be installed in Balıkesir and Bandırma. 24 will be a safer city in Balıkesir with watched roads and intersections.
