The future of leoncin
How can Leoncin keep its uniqueness and identity?
How to develop the area creating profits for people and nature?
The uniqueness of Leoncin lies in its location. It includes a part of the Kampinos National Park and its lagging, being the largest green enclave near Warsaw. It is also the river Vistula blended into the landscape of municipality. Being a part of the Warsaw Metropolitan Area, the municipality may develop keeping its local character and village atmosphere. Biodiversity, high-utility arable grounds as well as a good microclimate along Vistula form a basis for the local economy. They define the area as extremely valuable. Especially for building an ecological image of the region and eco-village. Healthy, locally produced organic food, recreation and leisure can serve as its symbols.
Strategy of development and projects
Development of Leoncin as a municipality aspiring to the “eco” status should harmonise with its identity. In addition to the landscape, cultural heritage, traditions, its identity has been shaped by quality management and local architectural elements. Activities taken by the municipality should build a coherent programme of action, information and marketing strategy. The expectation is to preserve the spatial order, which will harmonise with the implementation of the following initiatives and projects:
- Leoncin – Urbanization Resilience
- Leoncin – Possibility Through Eco-Living, Eco-Learning and Eco-Working
