New rescue stations in Myyrmäki, Tikkurila, Korso, and Hakunila
Vantaa city executive board decided in its meeting on November 15, to ratify Myyrmäki, Tikkurila, Korso and Hakunila rescue stations’ needs assessments. To improve Keski-Uusimaa Rescue Department’s response times, Vantaa will need altogether four new rescue stations in the near future.
Separate needs assessments have been compiled for the rescue stations to be realized in 2022-2026. Anticipating the new wellbeing-services-county reform, the rescue stations can take the form of, for instance, lease projects.
The meeting also ratified the main 2022 guidelines for the regional program of positive action. In addition, the city executive board decided to submit the Rosenlund local detailed plan in Havukoski for the city council’s ratification.
Regional Program of Positive Action to continue
The meeting decided to ratify the main 2022 guidelines for the regional program of positive action, provided that the city council approves the budget proposals related to them.
The regional program of positive action is implemented in 2019-2022, and it aims to reduce wellbeing gaps by targeting resources and support measures at places where the need for support is the greatest. The program is implemented regionally by improving the coziness of the target areas in cooperation with the residents, as well as by targeting services and support measures at these areas. In addition, the action program strives to, among other things, prevent marginalization of the young and to ensure their integration. An annual sum of €2 million has been allocated for the program.
Twenty-four small-house lots planned for Rosenlund in Havukoski
The city executive board decided to submit the Rosenlund local detailed plan in Havukoski for the city council’s ratification. The local detailed plan will make it possible to include the present residents in the water resources management system. The goals of the local master plan, ratified by the city council in 2007, will be attained by infill development of the area, while accounting for Hanaböle fields with their valuable landscape. There are currently only a few residential buildings in the area, with woods to the northwest. The new local detailed plan will allow building of altogether 24 separate small-house lots and related utility buildings, as well as one block of utility buildings.
