The strategy document includes 24 long-term aims, 230 key steps, 375 measures from 2020 to 2050. The announcement was made by the mayor of Sofia Yordanka Fandakova which will be discussed in the Sofia Municipal Council.
"The document is divided in 2 parts – the long-term will be first. It includes 5 priorities. The short-term includes the current projects, it is way more concrete. The Municipal Council should first pass the long-term document”, added Fandakova.
"This is the way people from Sofia see their city in the next 30 years. Many of the current projects are part of this strategy document – the vision of Sofia. But we are aiming at uniting not only the citizens, but also the politicians of the Sofia Municipal Council. This is the way our city will have a clear plan for the next 30 years. 10 0000 organizations, citizens and municipal councilors are part of the team behind the Vision of Sofia”, continued the mayor.
Architect Georgiev, the leader of the team that created the Vision of Sofia, calculated that the current land-use plan of Sofia up to 1 million people can become its residents. But we believe that the biggest wave of people coming in Sofia is slowing down. Other cities are as competitive as Sofia – some in Bulgaria, others – beyond”, added the architect.
