Urban policy roadmap updated

Urbanization continues at the same time as a national urban policy remains conspicuous by its absence. MDI’s urban policy road maps have contributed to the major cities infrastructure investments. The role of small and medium-sized cities is however murky. Our III policy roadmap will raise the potential of small towns into discussion. The focus is on the urban vitality. At the same time, a new agenda of the regional government and national urban policy is created. The participants are cities of Forssa, Heinola, Järvenpää, Kokkola, Riihimäki and Uusikaupunki. The work is funded by the cities alongside with Confederation of Finnish Construction Industries RT, Builders Union, Building Information Foundation RTS, Finnish Association of Consulting Firms SKOL and Hypo Bank. The work will be completed in March 2017.
