September 7, 2017

The President approved a list of instructions following the August 5, 2017 meeting of the Council for Local Self-Government Development.

The Government has been instructed to submit proposals on introducing amendments to the law concerning various aspects of local self-government activities, improving public spaces in municipalities, implementing the Creating A Comfortable Urban Environment priority project, competitions for projects to create a comfortable urban environment with the participation of residents, and other issues.

It has been recommended that the State Duma consider, during the 2017 autumn session, the draft federal law on expanding citizens’ involvement in adopting decisions in urban planning.

It has been recommended that executive authorities of Russia’s regions create conditions to promote local self-government and encourage the widespread involvement of citizens in choosing areas of activity in the efforts of municipalities to improve public spaces and their direct participation in such activities.
