Development concept

With the aim of further renewing and developing the Fliegerhorstsiedlung, the city of Geilenkirchen received funding for urban development in 2014 in order to work out an integrated development concept for the neighbourhood.

Within the development concept, development goals and measures were developed to improve and strengthen the neighbourhood as a renewal area in the long term.

When planning and implementing any measures or projects, the city of Geilenkirchen is also dependent on the ideas and suggestions of residents and looks forward to your participation.
