Project description:SNOWBALL is presented by a group of cities and experts on urban planning. Recent experiences based on demonstration and research (Ecocity) has showed that integrated urban planning will lead to plans of better quality, in terms of energy savings and the environment. SNOWBALL introduces two types of integrated urban planning methods: Local Transport Performance (LTP), the regional and local level that reduces the transport demand (VK9-1), and also a modal shift towards less energy intensive modes (VK9-3). The second method, Drive Slow Go Faster (DSGF), improves energy efficiency of existing traffic volumes (VK9-2) by establishing constant reduced speeds. In SNOWBALL, 6 cities will implement plans following these concepts. The 6 implementation cities are trained to support other cities later on, thus getting a SNOWBALL effect of integrated planning.
