The program includes not only the reuse of public areas for building new green areas, but also the expropriation of valuable private land, following changes in the national legislation for this purpose only. For example, two modern gas stations will be replaced to make more space for the extending green areas, a premiere at national level.
The rehabilitation of existing parks aims at making them multifunctional and more attractive to different age groups is also an important component of the Program. These parks will be equipped with smart urban furniture, electric charging stations, LED technology for public lightning, underground waste platforms, dynamic informational panels etc., in line with the digital transformation strategy.
Another line of action under the Green Cluj Program includes planting over 100,000 mature trees in different public areas by 2030.
Some of the green areas included in the Program have already been delivered to the local community with the support of EU funding for the 2014-2020 programming period, while most them are under construction/preparation and will benefit from similar funding in the current period. The future plans include building a green bolt around the city and its metropolitan area, but also ecological corridors to connect the natural protected areas existing around in the proximity.
