City of Bydgoszcz

Bydgoszcz City as a local authority government institution has competences within the city borders which derive from the Communal Self-Government Act: in managing technical infrastructure, ensuring social infrastructure, ensuring safety and public order and taking care of spatial and environmental issues. The City has technical competences and capacity for implementing projects as it comprises specialized departments with professional staff management – project management will be done by the City Department of Municipal Utilities and Environmental Protection and the Municipal Cultural Centre (MCK) will be implementing and coordinating the works in thematic WPs. In 2012 Bydgoszcz City Council adopted two resolutions on the revitalisation directions of the City Centre and a resolution on the spatial and urban land management and planning for the area of the City Centre to make it a creative hub with the arts and residents involved in its development. Another strategic document that furthers the creative activities is „The Citizen’s strategy of culture development for 2013-2020” and „Bydgoszcz Strategy of Development do 2030 – Culture is the City Energy”.
