The multifaceted City of Mannheim is the centre of economic, ecological, cultural and social processes. Continuously changing demands on the city and new functions require corresponding reactions in the urban development field. The urban renewal and associated urban development promotion programme have proven to be a flexible and sustainable urban development instrument for the stabilisation and development of an area through several coordinated individual measures.
The main emphasis is on the targeted control of structural investments such as the modernisation of flats, the creation of public facilities, the construction and redesign of streets and places which are supplemented by active community work or quarter management, if necessary.
It would be impossible to realise urban renewal measures without the financial aid of Federal and Laender Governments as well as sometimes the EU. Just like other municipalities in Baden-Württemberg, Mannheim is getting financial aid from the urban development promotion programmes.
