Urban and Environmental Services are in charge of preliminary, construction and environmental planning of public areas. Public greenspaces include parks, playgrounds, fenced dog parks, street greenspaces and woodland parks. The plans are drawn up using the Services' own resources as well as purchasing planning services from consultants.
Announcements of the public display of environmental plans reviewed by the community committee are announced in newspapers and on the Internet. Propositions for environmental plans are on display at the Oulu10 services for two weeks.
