Guidelines on the URBAN Community Initiative 2000-2006
Following consultation with the European Parliament and the committees
representing the Member States, the European Commission has adopted the
final version of the guidelines for the Community's URBAN II Initiative,
devoted to the economic and social regeneration of declining towns and
cities and run-down urban districts, on 28 April 2000.
Assistance from the European Regional Development Fund to support the
URBAN II initiative in 2000-2006 will total EURO 700 million. The new
Initiative has two main objectives:
a) encouraging the design and implementation of highly innovative strategies
of economic and social regeneration in small and medium-sized towns/cities
and declining areas in major conglomerations;
b) reinforcing and exchanging knowledge and experience on regeneration
and sustainable urban development in the European Union.
