Humane Approach Toward Livable in Solo
Solo City, also called Surakarta City, had problems with street vendors that were cluttered in almost every corner of the city. Such disorganised locations caused public space inconvinience and sanitation problems, traffic disturbance, diversion of land fungtion, and discomport. About 5.817 street vendors were spread out in the city. In 2006, Solo started to bring order to how these vendors operated. They were either transferred to better location, or were allowed to sell in the some places but were provided carts, shelters and tents to make for a more pleasant sight. The were made to follow the temporary sales policy, where vendors are allowed to sells those areas only at certain hours.
Solo is an autonomous government in the Central Java Province, located in the lowland between the Lawu Mountain and the Merapi Mountain. Solo is divided and travesed by three larges rivers, namely Bengawan Solo, Jenes River, and Pepe River. Solo is one of the centers of Javanese culture.
In 2005, Solo government introduced innovative approaches to address the street vendor management issues. These approaches were a combination of culture, incentive based, inter government integration, and structure components wich enable street vendor management carried out successfully.
The relocation and re-arrangement of street vendor has been done with great consideration of the local cultur and humane methods. The local government convinces the street vendors that these efforts will improve their condition, that there is no re-arranging without offering an alternative, and that the re-arranging is not meant to eliminate their businesses. The local government continues these efforts.
