VISION COPPET

Study for the development of the old town and its Main Street

By Bovard & Nickl SA, civil engineers and surveyors, and Jean-Yves Le Baron Sàrl, landscape architect

Approved by the communal council in March 2018, this study goes beyond the basic question of the road through the old town in proposing:
5

to reduce the width of the road, to increase the width of the pavements, to slow the speed of the traffic and to reduce the noise level overall.

5

to enhance the visual attraction of the three key entries to the old town.

5

to select materials of construction that matched well with each other and with the colour palette already existing.

5

to coordinate the finishings of the work such that there is harmony between the accessories including lampposts, flower planters, etc.

5

once alternative parking is available, to rethink the use of the Places des Ormes and du Four, so that they again become places for public use.

5

to re-open and make attractive the course of the River Greny.

5

and to build on the success and new look of the remodeled road through the old town by opening up views to the lake and château from the center.
