Hoofddorp is developing into a future-proof and lively city. It’s a mix of working, living and a lot of facilities. Residents and entrepreneurs feel connected to the city and are eager to invest in it. The city is connected to the urban network within the Amsterdam metropolitan area.
The area of Beukenhorst-West – located between the center of Hoofddorp and the public transport station – plays an important role in completing the ambition of being a future-proof and lively city. The objective, which is momentarily being realized, is to create an attractive hiking and cycling route from the city center via a renewed park, fruit gardens and tennis courts to Beukenhorst-West (and back). The goal is to transform Beukenhorst-West into a mixed urban area, with a further development of the public transport station into a junction that is up to the mark.
The municipality of Haarlemmermeer achieves the ambition, to create a lively and dynamic Hoofddorp, from the philosophy that they cannot do this alone. The participation of the whole of society is needed for this. The layout plan and the development strategy for the area, are products of an intensive consultation in an open process, created in dialogue with its many inhabitants.
