Aleksandr VinogradovHead of Administration of Troitsk
We have been engaging the town residents since the development of the design for the Memory Square in 2014. Further, we participated in different projects: “Live Towns”, the Ural City Battle Competition for the development of town-planning solutions, where our team was the winner. I would like to point out that, thanks to the Agency for Strategic Development CENTER, today’s workshop appeared to be one of the best, and was conducted on a very high level. I hope it will contribute to the development of a project for renovation of the Tomin Culture and Recreation Park that will not only allow us to win the All-Russian Competition for the Improvement of Small Towns and Historic Settlements, but will be interesting for and popular among the people, so as to ensure the active attendance of our park by local residents and visitors to Troitsk.

Today, the application of the principles of design co-development is an integral part of successful projects for the development of a comfortable urban environment. At the workshop, organized in cooperation with the Troitsk administration, we could see the engagement of people of different ages in the process of the transformation of the town. As a result of such collaboration with local residents and experts, we received many constructive proposals to consider during further design development. I am sure that the work conducted will help us make the Tomin Park popular among local residents and visitors to Troitsk, and the improvement of the park will serve as a catalyst for the further transformation of the public spaces of one of the sunniest towns of Russia.
