The development strategy uses the key elements of the agglomeration program of the
Confederation, especially public transport, to induce a development of high-quality
which gives coherence, identity and attractiveness to the territory, and allows it
to be directed towards the future.
It is a development strategy which considers and supports the basic principles of the
agglomeration scheme FVG, by differentiating the polarities and their role in a
multipolar agglomeration. And it creates the prerequisites to work with the existing
urban fabric, in order to maintain the compactness of the urban areas and to develop
the open green space.
It is a development strategy which pays special attention to the challenge of balancing
the development of quality, especially regarding employment, on both sides of the
national border. Moreover, considering the current situation of the northern sector
of Geneva, it seems urgent to use all the means available to develop the structures
already present in Switzerland and France. The objective in crossing the border with
future development is to make profitable what is already there.
All this together opens the way towards a true sustainable development of the agglomeration FVG.
