As the current Strategic Plan for the Development of the Prague 14 District expires next year, the City Hall is preparing a new one. The intention is to involve citizens in the creation, which is what the so-called local forums, public meetings of residents with political representatives and experts from the municipal district office should serve. The first will take place in the second half of November, others will follow. Councilor Jan Liška (STAN) reported on this in the Prague 14 monthly.
Since the beginning of this year, Prague 14 has been implementing a project called ‘Sustainable Development Strategy 25+’ in order to create a strategic plan, which aims to define the direction that the eastern part of the metropolis will take in the next decade.
Part of the preparation of the strategy is the collection and subsequent evaluation of a large amount of demographic and socioeconomic data. According to Liška, the municipality will, for example, focus on evaluating the state of transport infrastructure, civic amenities, the state of the environment, as well as evaluating the level of education and health care.
“Without honest preparation, which also includes the mentioned collection of suggestions from citizens, a good and realistic plan could never be created. Our goal is to achieve the greatest possible satisfaction of local residents. That’s why their feedback on the mentioned topics is essential for us,” explained councilor Liška.
The town hall will start collecting suggestions from citizens on Wednesday, November 22, when the Hostavice and Jahodnice Local Forum will take place from 5:30 p.m. “Come and tell us how you want your neighborhood to develop in the coming decade,” the town hall invites.
Further meetings will follow, locations and dates to be determined. “We gradually want to ‘travel’ the entire Čtrnáctka – in addition to the already mentioned Hostavice and Jahodnice, we will also visit Hloubětín with Lehovec, Kyje, Hutě and Černý Most,” added councilor Liška.
The town hall has launched an e-mail: [email protected], to which you can already send ideas and suggestions on how the Prague 14 district should look in the coming decade.
