Historic buildings in Timișoara remain decrepit

Timișoara City Hall has sent almost 2,000 notices to the owners of dilapidated buildings in the city after none of them signed up for the restoration program put in place by mayor Dominic Fritz and his administration.

The mayor of Timișoara posted a message on his Facebook page on Monday, August 1, reminding owners that they are obliged to start the process of restoring their buildings’ facades by November 15, whether or not they make use of City Hall’s help.

If they fail to do so, they risk paying a tax of up to 500% from January 1, 2023 onwards, according to News.ro.

„We are taxing the inaction of the owners, but we are also coming up with a financial support tool for those who agree to rehabilitate the historic building they live in”, says the mayor.
