Civitta Romania developed an Integrated Urban Development Strategy for Bacău Municipality2017-10-04
Civitta Romania completed the Integrated Urban Development Strategy for the Municipality of Bacău, which was approved in unanimity by the Local Council and after that, presented during the European Mobility Week round table in Bacău. Based on this document the city of Bacău now has a clear vision for 2030 and can access more than 40 m. € of European funds through the Regional Operational Program (ROP) in order to implement some of the most important projects from the action plan.
According to the Vision, in 2030 the Municipality of Bacău is described as an important regional economic and transport hub, with strong connections to the national highway network and a competitive economy based on excellence in the technical field, proactive and entrepreneurial community. The high quality of living in Bacău is fostered by revitalized neighborhoods, attractive community amenities, various cultural activities and a comprehensive network of green spaces with highlights such as a 11 km waterfront promenade and a 15 ha sports area. Last but not least, in the field of transportation, most trips (more than 70%) within the city are made environmentally friendly with public transport, bicycles or by foot. This shift is supported by generous pedestrian areas within the city and neighborhood centers, by attractive public transport and by an extended cycling network.
To make this vision reality, the Municipality of Bacău has to achieve 6 goals with key priority indicators, with a corresponding project portfolio of 535 m. € total estimated value. The projects will be prioritized by a purposely created body within the municipality, allowing Bacau to access the approx. 40 m. € dedicated to the city within ROP, as well as additional funding from other European or national funds. In the portfolio, the largest amount of financial resources was allocated to urban mobility projects (254 m. €), neighborhood revitalization (141 m. €) and the extension of the green space network.
Now the Municipality of Bacău has a clear plan for the future, developed together with a large number of local stakeholders and community representatives and assumed by the political leaders.
