“Shaping Cities” Grant Contract has been signed

On 23 May, 2019 Latvia-Russia CBC Programme Managing Authority and Rēzekne City Council signed the grant contract to implement the project “Management & Urban Planning of Green City Areas for Sustainability in LV and RU Cross Border Cities” (Shaping Cities).

Long-standing partners from cross-border twin cities – Rēzekne in Latvia and Pskov in Russia – are to continue working on the revitalization of degraded urban areas through a number of activities:

  • revitalization works in two urban areas: Northern district park in Rēzekne and Pskov city park;
  • trainings for municipal actors on urban spatial planning, revitalization of deprived areas and development of tourism;
  • development of “Methodological Handbook for Planners” on sustainable management of deprived green urban spaces.

The project will bring new approaches to green spaces support and development in the cities such as crowdsourcing and thus will benefit inhabitants of Rēzekne, Pskov and surroundings and tourists visiting these places.

The total budget of the project is around 650 thousand EUR, including Programme co-financing amounting to 585 thousand EUR.

Two partners – Rēzekne City Council and Department of construction management of Pskov City Administration – have previous experience working together in “Green Man” project under Estonia-Latvia-Russia CBC Programme and will now spend 2 years together to give a new perspective to deprived green urban spaces by transforming them into sustainable and attractive areas for tourism and local economy development.
