Agglomeration planning for the Lower Reuss Valley

In 2015, officials representing the canton of Uri and the various municipalities of the Lower Reuss Valley decided in favor of submitting an agglomeration plan within the terms of the Swiss federal agglomeration program. The plan outlines the goals and strategies that are to be pursued in the context of the Lower Reuss Valley’s future development, in particular with respect to housing, landscape, and transportation. We helped the canton of Uri to develop a third-generation plan (2015-2016) and continued our support when it came to the development of a fourth-generation plan (2019-2021).
