Peltosaari Project is organized by the City of Riihimäki, it has been running from 2009 with good results. The aim is to improve Peltosaari area as a whole and to add co-operation between different actors. We try to make the area more safe, energy efficient, ecological and a good and safe place to live.We have had different programs running in the last years and in the future we will concentrate on social aspects as having a village house with different functions, on renovation of existing buildings and on building new apartment houses to get new people in the area.
Peltosaari Parliament is a voluntary member, where spokesmen from different action groups are meeting 6-7 times per year. There we can discuss and plan arrangements for events etc.Also individual suggestions can be brought to discussion in Parliament.
