The project kicked off at the beginning of October 2018 during the Herttoniemi Suburban Festival. The project looks at the development of Herttoniemi from a comprehensive point of view instead of sin relation to eparate plans, with the vision here to develop cooperation with local residents and actors. In addition, the work challenges the city’s reformed organisation in finding place-based development in a new way. Work began in the autumn of 2017 with interviews, information gathering, a regional survey and workshops. During the winter of 2017, MDI organised open vision evenings for everyone interested in networking and reflecting on the various ways in which participation could occur. The vision will be completed in 2018. It sketches the future out to about 10 to 15 years. Key issues to be considered here include planning and refurbishment of the area, improvement and management of streets, parks and green spaces as well as other city requirements.
