The 2nd working day of the Study Visit was held
The 2nd working day of the Study Visit in the framework of the project «Good Governance in Local Communities: V4 Experience of Strategic Planning for EaP Countries» was held on September 11, 2017. The project is implemented by the Euroregion “Dniester” with the support of the International Visegrad Fund and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
A group of participants visited 4 comunities in Wielkopolska Voivodeship, namely Puszczykowo, Sroda Wielkopolska, Kornik and Rogalin.
Meeting with the Mayor of Puszczykowo Andrzej Barcerecu took place at a new sport complex that was built just in 11 month time at a cost of about 3 mln EUR. Our international delegation was the first, who visited the building since its official opening – September, 8. At the Town administration participants had the lecture entitled “Development and Promotion Strategies of Puszczykowo”. The community uses its weaknesses in the development strategy – closeness to the big city of Poznan, and aims to become a comfortable town for living and recreation.
Then project participants visited the Town Administration of Sroda Wielkopolska. They were welcomed by the Deputy Mayor, Ernest Ivanchuk. The group had a lecture “The Model of Cooperation Between Self-Governing Bodies and Public Organizations using the example of Sriod Wielkopolska. Development and Standardization the Standards for Cooperation”. During the lecture participants learned not only about existing mechanisms of public participation in the decision-making process, but also about mechanisms of cooperation between the authorities and public organizations in managing various events and town objects.
The Study Visit continued with excursions around Kornik and Rogalin. Participants took a look at culture-historical heritage, social facilities, towns’ infrastructure and how municipal improvement is managed in those towns.
A common characteristic of these community is a beneficial geographical location not far from Poznan. The communities are being intensively developed due to the increase in the number of inhabitants and involvement of new business structures.
