Transformative strategies for integrated district development (TRASIQ2): Testing of measrues

With TRASIQ 2, the newly developed participation format "Planning Forum" as well as the web-based analysis tool for urban development measures created in TRASIQ 1 was transferred to two existing neighborhoods in the City of Darmstadt. In this way, the special problem pressure in urban existing quarters is taken into account in redevelopment and modernization for the energy and traffic turnaround. Planning forum refers to a real-laboratory approach in which a random process brings together practitioners for a sequence of dialog events to discuss specific issues of sustainable neighborhood development and initiate concrete implementation steps. The included target groups were primarily local residents and civil society initiatives active in the neighborhood. Other important stakeholders were representatives of municipal enterprises (especially housing, energy and transport companies). A central tool for structuring the content-related discussions and evaluating proposals made is the web-based analysis tool, which is being further developed for TRASIQ 2. It graphically displays the impacts of various planning options and can be used individually or as part of the planning forums. The central result of the follow-up support are so-called "roadmaps of realization" for lifeworld problem situations in the selected existing neighborhoods in Darmstadt. The roadmaps define formal and informal urban planning instruments to be used for the further transformation of existing neighborhoods, as well as a technically coherent chronological sequence of the individual measures. Responsibilities are defined and cooperation commitments are set down, and tailored offers and innovative approaches are innovative approaches are developed for practitioners. In addition, references are made to potential funding for the various implementation steps contained in the roadmaps.
