National Kinmen Senior High School’s swimming pool and stadium were listed by the Fire Bureau as dangerous public indoor spaces, because they are too old and do not comply with current provisions of the Fire Prevention Act. Magistrate Chen Fu-Hai was especially concerned and, traveling lightly, visited National Kinmen Senior High School at 11:00 A.M. yesterday to inspect the surrounding environment. Magistrate Chen indicated that since the facilities have been listed by the Fire Bureau as dangerous public indoor spaces, the necessity of continuing use of the facilities should be considered from the perspective of students’ safety to establish safety and learning quality of teaching and activity facilities.
In light of the significantly denser populations in Jincheng and Jinning in recent years, as well as the concentration of business activities and people on business in the city area, there has been insufficient parking space and bad traffic, affecting activities and routes of residents. The county government indicated that it will provide residents with a high quality and splendid leisure and activity space.
The county government is currently planning a parking lot in Jincheng, and will use space above the parking lot to build a multi-purpose library and facilities for leisure activities and meet the requirements of parent-child or women’s needs. The project was comprehensively evaluated based on location, convenience of transportation, land acquisition, urban planning, and residents’ needs, in which the swimming pool and stadium of National Kinmen Senior High School are the most suitable site.
Magistrate Chen pointed out that even though National Kinmen Senior High School is a national level school, all students are locals, and from the county government’s position, no distinction is made and the county government is willing to shoulder the responsibility if necessary.
Magistrate Chen further said: “To find a permanent solution and provide National Kinmen Senior High School with a better more modern teaching environment, so that Kinmen will no longer be a remote area, the county government is willing to use this opportunity to plan an underground parking lot and build a multi-purpose activity center, while helping National Kinmen Senior High School tear down and build a new swimming pool and stadium.”
Regarding the site of the new swimming pool and stadium of National Kinmen Senior High School, Magistrate Chen pointed out that the parking lot on the east side of the softball field to the front left of the high school will be used, and the functionality and use of the softball field will not be affected. Magistrate Chen is willing to listen to the thoughts and opinions of the high school’s teachers as well as various communities regarding this topic.
Magistrate Chen commented out of feeling when he asked for support from various communities, hoping that Kinmen will no longer be a remote area, residents will enjoy a sense of glory, and parking and traffic will no longer be a nightmare in Jincheng, stating that the underground parking lot and multi-purpose activity center is indeed necessary.
Additionally, during Magistrate Chen’s inspection of the surrounding environment of National Kinmen Senior High School, he saw students of the Department of Applied English of National Quemoy University playing softball. He noticed that the gloves were worn out and facilities were poor, and promised to help provide new sports equipment to create a better sports environment, allowing students to play safer and healthier.
