Unlike the urban zoning plan, which every city should have, a city is not required to have a development strategy. We do not want the city to develop based on ad-hoc decisions. We want Brno to develop systematically, with a clear vision of its future, together with you.
Based on cooperation with experts and the involvement of you, the citizens of Brno, we have prepared a fundamental document “Vision of Brno in 2050”. Its updated form was approved by Brno councillors in September 2020.
According to the strategic vision, we subsequently updated the follow-up plan of the City of Brno for the next 10 years, which was approved by the city councillors in March 2021.
By 2022, a list of concrete projects for the coming years was being created, which will gradually start to materialise in the streets of Brno. So that the vision does not remain just on paper but turns Brno into a confident city that will be the envy of the whole world. Or at least Europe.
In September 2020, Brno City Assembly approved an update to the city’s long-term Vision 2050. They confirmed the previously set long-term course of the city development and the values that the development is based on. Vision 2050 offers an answer to a questions what kind of a city Brno wants to be like in 2050 and which are the main targets to reach it.
In 2050, Brno is a synonym for an attractive and at the same time sustainable city in international comparisons.
The people of Brno appreciate the high quality of life in the city, which offers them employment and business, entertainment and relaxation. The fruits of research and innovation are linked here with the economic prosperity of individuals and companies. The urban landscape mingles with the surrounding countryside. Openness and cohesion on the one hand, and a healthy and resilient environment on the other, create a home and safe background for half a million people.
The people of Brno are aware of the scarcity and limitations of natural resources; they support their efficient use, so that the city always has enough water, energy and resources for its development. They want to leave the city in an equal or better condition for future generations.
The people of Brno can see that the city is managed energetically, in a modern and efficient manner. The governance and development of the city are based on a cultivated public debate and long-term cooperation of all partners.
The city breathes for its inhabitants and they in turn can be proud of their city.
Have you ever wondered what Brno will look like… in 10 years? We have given these ideas a concrete shape. In March 2021, the Brno City Council approved the second of the three parts of the strategy – PLAN 2030. With the help of experts, it was updated and fine-tuned both formally and in terms of reflecting the current consequences of the pandemic, new findings from the circular economy or mitigating the effects of climate change. We now know what to work on together over the next 10 years.
We already know how the current situation has shuffled some of the city’s priorities, so we can move on to specific projects and activities for the coming years – the so-called action plan.
Will Brno finally have a decent concert hall? What new sports venues will be built? Where new apartments will be built?
Some projects are already in the making, others are gradually taking shape and will be implemented in the coming years. Together we are working out when, how and for how much the projects will be implemented and who will be in charge of them. We worked on the action plan together with experts until spring 2022, when the document was published.
