The participation “District for every­one” is based on three pillars to address as many people in Stuttgart as possible and make representative decisions oriented to public welfare: Public events, theme nights and digital participation.

Online participation

From June 23 to July 25, 2022, interested parties were able to participate in the online participation on Stuttgart Rosenstein. Questions were answered and positions taken on the urban development project along the three themes of uses, open space and mobility. The participants rated various aspects of the planning ranging from “I fully agree” to “I disagree”. Then they justified their decisions in their own words.

All in all, the online participation was a huge success: 373 verified persons participated and 535 questionnaires were completed. These are distributed among the topics of uses: 252 completed questionnaires, open space: 117 completed questionnaires and mobility: 166 completed questionnaires. Within the topic areas, the current open space concept earned the greatest approval (53 percent fully agreed). There was a divided response, for example, to the question "I would gladly do without my own car if it meant that my rent would then be significantly cheaper than that of a car owner." A slim majority of 51 percent agreed with this statement. You can find all the results in the full results documentation.

The online participation complemented the theme nights and was also divided into three topics: uses, open space and mobility. All in all 535 questionnaires were completed.
What to do next with the results

All participants expressed various wishes, requirements and points of criticism in the events, discussions and digital participation. These are then documented, categorised and analysed. You can find the complete documentation here.

Together with the commissioned offices, the municipal planning checks the wishes and ideas from the participation for feasibility, since not all proposals can be realised when it comes to planning and technology. The opinions of the participants vary greatly with some questions – which conclusions can be drawn and solutions developed must also be assessed. Afterwards, the verified results are discussed by the political committees. Prerequisite of the implementation is the approval by the municipal council.

The results are then integrated into the framework plan and also fixed for subsequent planning steps. Finally, the completed framework plan is presented to the boards and committees and approved - a milestone for the urban development project.

The handling of existing structures was also discussed: What potential is there in the existing buildings? What uses might be realized in it?
