In recent years, the Maritime District has undergone a major metamorphosis from a boring office district to a hip residential district with lots of entertainment on the water too. This also includes fun events such as the Old Port Summer Festival, the Wijnhaven Festival / Rotterdam Water Weekend, the World Port Days, the 010 City Swim, Sinfonia Maritime Concert, etc. in recent years.
In the coming period there will also be fun events that really suit the Maritime District: they celebrate the city, make optimum use of the water and wink at the past.
Below is a selection of the events; an ideal moment to get to know our neighborhood!
Wednesday 28 November 2019 - Criminal Undermining Prevention Info Meeting
Are you a VVE driver, VVE manager, wholesale tenant of apartments or active as a resident within a residents' association or committee? Then you are very welcome at this information meeting organized by us in collaboration with VVE010 and the Police.
The purpose of the meeting is to get the various boards and committees to get to know each other and to let each other and experts know about the latest state of affairs regarding criminal undermining in larger residential complexes and the possibilities to do something about this, also based on their own experiences. . Unfortunately, the high-rise in our neighborhood has proved to be an attractive target for criminal groups and this is a growing problem. Most of those involved will unfortunately already have gained experience with criminal activities in the building. Sharing experiences, how to act and what measures were subsequently taken can be very useful for (new) boards and prevent the wheel from being reinvented.
19.30u: Walk-in and informal introduction
19.45u: Introduction by organizing parties
20.00u: Presentation about criminal undermining by City Marine / Police
20.30u: Coffee break
