Urban planning: the mirror of the society
Today one of the most important planning problem is to link the urban planning to sustainable development. In the last years the issue of sustainability has been implemented through several methods.
The focus point is to develop a partecipated way of planning processes, starting from a local urban organization including society.
The first step is informing and bringing up citizens about Energy costs/prices and technical aspects connected to the feasibility of producing Energy using alternative sources.
The second step includes citizens’ need of being informed and actively involved in planning development processes.
After these two phases a new way of public land use could come out.
The third step focuses on the Municipality as the main actor, which could transfer citizens some areas, such as services, fringe, abandoned and disuses industrial ones and so on. All this actions will promote urban regeneration interventions.
Others actions could include the creation of multifunctional spaces which will produce “green” Energy in order to save it.
In the meantime these spaces will become meeting and sharing point not only fisically but even virtually.
Thanks to these kind of areas each community could feel as a real active part of its neighborhood.
Moreover inside those areas it could be possible to create: waste separation areas, kinetic playgrounds, urban organic gardening, green areas, “mini wind farms” and so on.
