Forward momentum

With the new year upon us, let us take a moment to look back on last year’s accomplishments.

Highlights include the official opening of the Stade de Luxembourg and the laying of the foundation stone for the Beggen water treatment plant extension. But it doesn’t stop there – the last year was brimming with activity that shaped our capital and impacted our everyday life. Some projects are still ongoing, such as the Pétrusse land restoration project and the Mobilitéitsplang fir muer, while others were completed, such as the social housing units in the Grund and the new crèche in Gasperich, to name but a few.

With this, we remind ourselves that despite the pandemic – which dominated many of this year’s activities – we have continued to make progress. We managed to move forward with a vast range of projects, ideas and discourses, and you helped us – I thank you for this!

We here at the City of Luxembourg are determined to keep this forward momentum going in the new year. Together with our partners, we will do everything we can to reach our goals and continue to listen and respond to the needs of residents, visitors and businesses alike.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this, take a look at the plans of each member of the college of aldermen for 2022 and beyond, as well as our budget strategy that illustrates our commitment to the capital’s development. We also take you behind the scenes with the Service Seniors (Department of Senior Services). While the pandemic has had a major impact on this department’s activities, its staff members and the public have found new ways to overcome the difficulties they have faced. We also showcase the Lëtzebuerger Filmpräis with Guy Daleiden and Yann Tonnar, the cultural highlights coming up in 2022, and a number of other topics.

I wish you a happy reading, good health and a happy New Year!
