    II. TYPOLOGY
    1. Improved provision of local cultural and social events.

      At the beginning of these initiatives we invite experts, representatives of local community and owners of the property in the area under consideration to discuss with them about our intent and to find out more about their wishes, expectations. The main idea behind the initiatives is to make city centre more lively and attractive as it is now. We are planning to physical renovate some elements in city centre (pavements, river bank, bridge) but one of the main focus will be on new and interesting urban elements.

    2. Improved condition & quality of the public space between the blocks of flats.

      After renovation in year 2013/14 there will be some more quality places for cultural and social events. We hope that final product will be appreciated from local people and that through this action we will encourage people to spend more time in city centre.

    3. Improved support for the development of small business operators in the area of blocks of flats.

      new business opportunities should be introduced to the target area, also through ongoing city branding projects.

    4. Improved attractiveness of the architecture of the socialist buildings.

      new business opportunities should be introduced to the target area, also through ongoing city branding projects.

    5. Improved involvement of the local community in events organized in its quarter.

      Local community was involved in preparation of initiative. We are realy glad that we manage to bring together experts in our valley and that they were glad too.
