In the work we do in Lahti Direction, we are building a sustainable future in cooperation with various operators.
Citizens, decision-makers, experts and other stakeholders are invited into the process. The work’s purpose is to ensure a sustainable and healthy life for the citizens. The work is about finding a solution for sustainable daily life and the well-being of the citizens.
The Lahti Direction work is done in cycles of four years by the City Council terms. Now the work for the years 2017 to 2020 is under preparation. For the first time, a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is prepared alongside the master plan. Themes of the environmental programme and service network work have also been included.
This way of planning land use and mobility together is unique in Finland.
Lahti Direction was approved by the city council
The proposal for the Lahti Direction work was completed in May 2020 and available for view from July to August. Lahti City Council made a decision on the approval of Lahti Direction in January 2021. Two formal appeals were sent to the local administrative court.
What is Lahti like in 2030?
What kind of city would you like to live in? What lifestyles might your children and grandchildren choose in the future? These are some of the questions we are searching answers for together in the Lahti Direction work. Lahti Direction is a discussion forum about the city’s future.
