Participatory planning in Törökőr - Noémi Szabó on SUNRISE experiences at the CIVITAS Forum

At the CIVITAS Forum 2019 conference in Graz, Noémi Szabó (Mobilissimus) and Ralf Brand (Rupprecht Consult) presented the SUNRISE H2020 project, which focuses on neighbourhood-level mobility planning and on the broadest possible involvement of the local community in planning. Noémi Szabó reported the project's experiences in the pilot city Budapest.

In Budapest, the target area of ​​the project is the Törökőr neighbourhood of Zugló, where the process of community-based mobility development started in 2017. SUNRISE has mobilized locals and other users of the area extensively: more than 400 unique problems and ideas were received only during the period of co-identification of problems. These problems were grouped and turned into measure proposals, from which stakeholders could select the most important ones using a community budgeting instrument. Finally, three projects fit into the available financial framework. The winner projects  main goal is to create a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists in the area of Tábornok street and the underpass of Tábornok street and around the schools, kindergartens and a nursery in the area of Újvidék square. The implementation of these project can be expected in the next six months.

Noémi Szabó also introduced the participatory planning tools that we used in the process, which on the one hand helped to ensure a broad public participation and on the other hand augmented the community planning inventory of Zugló and Mobilissimus.
