Renewal of Rovaniemi Centre

The city of Rovaniemi is going to be doing some major urban renewal to the main shopping street (Rovakatu) and walking street (Koskikatu) next summer. The new plans include extending the walking street, a new bike lane through town, fashionable paving stone sidewalks, and closing off Rovakatu (the main drag) to cars at the end and making it two-way. You can check out the plans at the Rovaniemi city page, and those of you who are local will be able to vote between two alternate proposals this November.
