second evaluation of the "Vision Akyaka" process has successfully

THE AKYAKA VISION:
We see an Akyaka that
protected its natural and architectural structure,
perfected its infrastructure,
leads a vivid social and cultural life,
unites communal values and
shares this fortune all year round with its visitors.
To agree on contemporary and participatory
methods to evaluate any approach that
can have an impact on natural diversity
To protect the nature in the area between the two rivers by planning further
building on the slopes of the hills,
using the typical architectural style of the town
To cooperate with all involved groups to overcome problems that may eventual
arise in the future
Perfection of infrastructure as streets, canalisation, waste water
waste collection and systems, subterranean cable systems and
park areas with
contemporary standards and methods.
Social capacity building to enhance public abilities and to enrich
social and cultural
life without destroying the
local character and to offer
places where all people can
meet to follow this aim.
A tourism strategy that
makes Akyaka to a trademark
and is valid all year round.
Offering regional organic
products to local inhabitants
