Future vision stationplaza Amersfoort

One Planet sees great opportunities to transform Amersfoort Station plaza into a real gem and attraction for the whole city of - vibrant, green, sustainable, multifunctional, safe and welcoming! This 2-minute video shows how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46-HTSqhXeU&feature=youtu.be

During two exciting Information evenings on 22 and 25 January that were open to the public, we presented our integral vision at Stichting One Planet at Stationsplein 16. This plan included a new  bicycle garage for 2500 bicycles. We made this plan and presentation to encourage an open and transparent discussion with all stakeholders in and around the station - residents, travellers, shops and businesses, building owners, bus company etc. This is something that affects all of us and we believe the future of the station plaza is something which should be discussed in an open transparent manner with all concerned, and not kept secret behind closed doors in the municipality.

This plan attracted a lot of attention and discussion in Amersfoort. Four short television films were made about it. It appeared a few times in local newspapers and was debated at length in a heated debate in the city council. The city councillor responsible apologised for the previous closed way ow working and promised to do better in future. Each step in the development of stations plaza is now discussed during public meetings.
