Managing the overall development of the city of Rosenheim requires an interdisciplinary, integrated and future-oriented approach. Here, not only the built and spatial structure is taken into account. Aspects such as demographic development and its consequences, housing, the development of the economy and the labor market, social affairs, education, upbringing, mobility, transport, culture, health, the environment, nature, climate, recreation and tourism also have an influence on the city's development planning.
The urban development department works on different spatial levels. In addition to the central task of drawing up a city-wide development concept and strategy concepts for the city center, sub-spatial planning (framework planning) and thematic studies (e.g. energy-efficient urban development) also play a role.
The city is facing the current challenges of sustainable urban development and developed an urban development concept "Rosenheim 2025 - City in the Future" with citizen participation.
With a medium-term planning horizon up to the year 2025, it was examined how the existing potentials can be better used and networked in order to strengthen the attractiveness, significance and function of the city.
In November 2012, the city council dealt with the draft of the urban development concept. The content-related building blocks for the topic areas from the participation meetings are being condensed into an overall spatial concept. Cross-faction goals and measures were discussed for the following fields of action.
In parallel, the planning process for the urban concept was accompanied by a multi-stage public participation process. The process began with three topic-related expert hearings in 2012, the aim of which was to hear local and national experts and multipliers. Their views were incorporated into the further planning process.
1st Expert Hearing with the focus on "Economy and Labor
2nd expert hearing with the thematic focus "Social affairs, education, culture and sport
3rd Expert Hearing with the thematic focus "Economy and Labor
The next participation event was an all-day citizens' workshop held at the Culture and Congress Center.
Around 140 committed citizens responded to the call and contributed their ideas on a variety of different topics.
The aim of the citizens' workshop was to discuss a variety of aspects of urban life in four different moderated workshops running in parallel and to collect ideas and suggestions for a sustainable and attractive Rosenheim.
Subsequently, the draft of the urban development concept was concretized and discussed with the city council. In terms of content, the focus was on the topics of residential land development and traffic. As part of the preparation of the Rosenheim traffic development plan, concepts for pedestrian traffic, bicycle traffic, motorized private transport and public transport were drawn up in draft form.
In 2015, another citizen participation meeting was held on the Rosenheim 2025 urban development concept. Around 150 interested citizens of the city took the opportunity to obtain first-hand information about the current planning status for the urban development concept, the open space concept, and the traffic development plan and to discuss them.
The draft of the text documentation for the urban development concept, in which the results from the previous citizen participation have been incorporated, served as preparation. various presentations by the planners were presented at the event.
