This result is the result of the work carried out in the first months of this year following the opening of the regional tender for the identification of urban areas of the 2021-2027 PR Fesr program of the Veneto Region which provides for the identification of urban areas with a procedure divided into two phases: the first to identify the urban areas and the second in which the admitted urban areas will present their own integrated strategy for sustainable urban development. The first phase ended last July with the identification, by the Veneto Region, of the 11 regional urban areas including, in fourth place, the urban area of Treviso made up of the Municipalities of Treviso (lead), Carbonera, Casier, Paese, Ponzano Veneto, Preganziol, Quinto di Treviso, Silea and Villorba. The second phase of building the sustainable urban development strategy will now follow, a real long-range strategy that will define the urban area of the future.
The Municipalities concerned will now have to identify the projects and interventions in the digital field, green infrastructures, sustainable mobility, housing inclusion and urban and cultural regeneration that they want to implement in the Treviso urban area in the next seven years of the 2021- 2027, using the funding received. A complex work that will involve the Municipalities of the urban area, supported by the Veneto Region, in the first half of next year with the possibility of seeing the strategies approved by June 2023 and the first interventions already started by the end of 2023.
