How should Darmstadt grow?
DA2030+ is a look at Darmstadt, City of Science. Where and how can the city and its neighbourhoods change? What are the boundaries to growth? What are the prerequisites that have to be established to achieve sustainable development for Darmstadt? In order to answer these and other questions, the city formulated the Master Plan DA2030+ ////Thinking Ahead for Darmstadt. The goal of the plan is to draw up an overall picture and a collective vision of the future for Darmstadt.
The process of elaborating the master plan is to be steered by Urban Catalyst. A key focus in this cooperative procedure, with intensive public participation, are the citizen forums in which the planning teams present their ideas for the future for five working areas: “residential city”, “neighbourhood city”, “science and work city” and “mobile city”. Following this, the results are to be pooled by Urban Catalyst and coalesced to form the Master Plan DA2030+. The master plan is set, in turn, to be passed by the city council to serve as urban-planning mission statement and as a compass for political and administrative decision-making.
