14 The twelve principles of urban renewal
1st Urban renewal has to be planned and implemented with the residents. 2nd Technical and social planning must go hand in hand. 3rd The character of the district has to be preseved and confidence to be won again. Substance threatening construction damage must be eliminated immediately. 4th Careful floorplan changes to enable new housing. 5th The renovation will take place in stages. 6th The stock should be improved through courtyard greening and facade design 7th Public facilities, streets, squares and green spaces have to be renewed and expanded 8th Participation and material rights of the persons concerned in social planning must be formalized. 9th All decisions have to be found open; residents committees strengthened. 10th Urban renewal needs trust and solid financial commitments. 11th New forms of Ownership should be developed. 12th The careful urban renewal must be secured in the long term.

15 Example square Marie “A place for Marie", Marienburger road 42-46
The redevelopment area Winsstrasse had a lack of public open spaces. Due to the initiative of the residents could the use of an uncultivated property as a city square could be achieved. Planning and realization has been carried out together with the residents. On the 5,000 square meter area have been built public spaces, an adventure playground, a small children's playground and a neighborhood garden. Between the district and the residents of the maintenance is covered by a contract. Malaktion Gesamtansicht nach Fertigstellung Einweihung Arbeit am Krokodil Kurz vor Abschluss der Baumaßnahmen
