Raahe’s Future Scenarios

City of Raahe

The city of Raahe is developing a growth strategy that is positioned between the urban strategy and the long-term operational activities of the governing bodies. The City has ordered a present state analysis from MDI to support its growth strategy and three different growth scenarios for future urban development. The scenarios explore three possible futures: shrinking, preserving and growing. The scenario timeframe is up to 2025. The scenarios include an analysis of the development of service structures and of the development of the municipal and regional economies more generally. In addition to the scenarios, concrete measures are identified and designed enabling the desired scenarios to be achieved.
