Erlangen mitgestalten

Erlangen offers many opportunities for co-design. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible in the city and inspire them to participate.

You are all experts - your knowledge supports the development of the city

You are active in environmental protection, interested in mobility, are affected by construction measures or want to bring your ideas to the redesign of a city square. They work in one of the many local and district councils very concretely for their neighborhood. They are involved in clubs or initiatives, they go to the polls. Everywhere you are important!

Information is the first step

With the list of projects we inform them about the current plans and projects in the city. And it also tells them which issues or projects they can get involved in.

Planning and projects in the city

What is being built in my part of town? Why is a road being closed here? Anyone who wants to know which projects the city is currently implementing and which plans have already been initiated can find out about the list of projects. Both digitally on the website of the city of Erlangen or via the printed version. It is available in public buildings, citizens' meetings and in the city hall.
