(FINALIST 2019) The City of Omegna is working in a holistic way to improve the town for the community as a whole

This project brings together, around an institutional working table, majority and minority political forces, professional associations, trade associations and local entrepreneurs to build a shared project for the future of Omegna. The aim is to provide work for new generations and attract investors and visitors in search of cultural (City of Gianni Rodari) and natural (Lake Orta) tourist experiences. Involving the entire population and neighbouring territories, concrete actions are promoted to develop urban spaces.

Project actions include; a municipal grant per square meter and zeroing the tax for occupying public land with scaffolding. In addition, the municipal administration is in dialogue with private companies and has obtained significant discounts for construction and renovation materials and services. In turn, the technical working group is developing a new road system to reduce traffic and pollution in the historic centre. The municipality is working to carefully balance the needs of entrepreneurs and the private sector with the needs of the public sector and the community as a whole.
