The CUPA workshop in Lviv

CUPA workshop - CUPA Lviv
Date: 19th - 22nd of June 2011
Venue: City Council at the Rynok Square in Lviv

After the first successful workshop of the CUPA (Co-operative Urban Planning Approaches) project in Bratislava in September 2010, the second workshop was held in Lviv (Ukraine) from 20 to 22 June 2011. The purpose of this workshop was to jointly develop solutions for the urban development area surrounding the new stadium for the EURO 2012, which is currently being built.

In his opening remarks, the Mayor of Lviv Andri Sadowyj underlined the need for a sustainable development of the area surrounding the EURO 2012 stadium, in order to create a district which will be accepted and used by the citizens also after the European football championships.  Hence the aim of the workshop was to jointly develop a sustainable vision for the development of this area and discuss possible implementation measures. One of the central questions was: "What are possible uses and functions that will bring people into the area once the EURO 2012 has come to a close?"
To explain the local problems and challenges to the planners participating in the workshop, staff members of the Lviv city administration presented the master plan for the area and the underlying considerations. The plan envisages a leisure park, an ice rink, a shopping centre, an exhibition and trade fair centre and administrative facilities to be built on the relevant area in the south of the city.

The presentation of case studies on the issue of stadium construction for international large-scale events provided the participants with an insight into the approaches other cities have followed to cope with these challenges. Rolf Rammensee from the City of Munich's Unit for Urban Planning and Building Regulation, Urban Development Planning presented Munich's considerations and concept for the construction of the Allianz Arena stadium. Terri Fuglem from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, described the situation in the cities of Calgary and Montreal after their hosting of the Olympic Games. In contrast to Calgary, where the sports facilities which were built for that purpose are still used today, the City of Montreal failed to gain the hoped-for impetus from the Olympic Games.

The workshop was concluded by a joint session, where the workshop results were presented to the Mayor and other representatives of the City of Lviv.
