Second online participation successfully completed on 30.09.2022

Within a month, around 1,200 comments were submitted as part of the second online participation on the Jena 2035+ cycling plan. This information will now be used to revise the recommended measures and prioritize them.

After the first online participation in the Jena 2035+ cycling plan in March 2022 was a complete success, the second participation was also extremely well received. In this second participation, the network and the recommended measures developed so far were presented and could be commented on and evaluated. A total of 1,200 comments and more than 8,000 "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" ratings were received.

Mayor Christian Gerlitz is delighted with the above-average participation of Jena's citizens once again:

'The committed and, for the individual, definitely time-consuming participation shows me that there is a great deal of interest in good solutions for cycling in Jena. This gives us in the city administration a tailwind for further processing and for the subsequent implementation phase.

The platform with all comments and evaluations can still be viewed online.

At the same time, consultations were held with the district councils as part of participation forums. Here, the representatives of the districts were able to talk directly with the planning office and those responsible in the city of Jena.

The feedback will now be used to specify, adapt and prioritize the recommended measures.

Results of the 1st online participation

Mayor Christian Gerlitz is delighted with the large number of entries:

The high level of participation shows once again the great commitment of the citizens in the city of Jena. We can now provide the planners with a lot of information so that the extensive local knowledge can be incorporated into the planning. The planning is therefore very close to the needs of the people in the city of Jena.

In the next step, the commissioned planning office will check the reports of the participation during an on-site inspection. A cycling network will then be created for the city of Jena. In addition to the reports from the online participation, sources and destinations of cycle traffic, such as schools, will also be taken into account. The network should ensure that all residential areas are connected and also takes rural districts into account. The network is being developed in close consultation with a specially formed working group, which includes the City of Jena's cycling officer as well as representatives of the Radentscheid and the Cycling Advisory Board.

The measures for this cycling network will be planned from summer 2022. During this phase, there will be further opportunities for interested citizens to participate. Completion of the cycling plan is planned for summer 2023.
