Recently, the Action Plan for the Renovation and Improvement of Wenzhou’s Urban and Rural Features (hereinafter referred to as the Action Plan) was officially issued and implemented, marking the overall implementation of the work on renovating and improving Wenzhou’s urban and rural features.

The Action Plan clarifies that the city’s work of renovation and improvement of the urban and rural features should follow the general requirements of “overall beauty and Wenzhou mold” and the development orientation of “a garden city with riverside and seaside”. From 2022 to 2025, the city plans to cultivate about 120 urban and rural featured model areas. Forty municipal-level urban featured model areas are to be built, including about 20 provincial-level urban featured model areas and 8 “dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains in the new era” urban model areas. Twenty-four municipal-level county featured model areas are to be constructed, including 12 provincial-level county featured model areas and 4 “dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains in the new era” county model areas. A batch of symbolic achievements with unique Wenzhou characteristics on the renovation and improvement of urban and rural features will be highlighted. One hundred future communities and 168 future villages will be constructed, forming a “Wenzhou model” for the management and construction of urban and rural features.

According to the Action Plan, the city will achieve the consensus on the feature of “a garden city with riverside and seaside”, by summarizing the general intention of the four major features of “mountains and rivers, a famous city, a port city, and a commercial metropolis”, delineating the characteristic goals of seven major feature managing areas and putting forward the programmatic guidance strategies for each goal. Therefore, the “mountains and rivers” characteristic goal is to be achieved by strengthening the construction of a garden city and the Oujiang River Scenery Poetry Road to highlight the features of integration of mountains and the city, integration of the city and rivers, riverside fashion, and cross-river synergy; the “famous city” by strengthening the construction of the national famous historical and cultural city to highlight the features of the pattern of the Big Dipper city, southern Zhejiang dwellings, and the harmonious ancient city; the “port city” by strengthening the construction of the gateway hub and the Wenzhou Bay New Area to highlight the features of the connection of the port to the world and integration of the sea and the city; and the “metropolis city” by strengthening the high-standard construction of the nine major areas and the organic renewal of the old city to highlight the features of high-end fashion, multiple functions, and one river and one street.

In addition, combining the city’s construction requirements of “one axis, one belt, and one district” and the types and distribution of the featured model areas, the “Action Plan” also proposes the concept of connecting various model areas with five corridors, which means, through integrating and improving the important corridors of great mountains and rivers, great transportation, and great greenways, and through lines-organizing and points-connecting, quality-upgrading and areas-expanding. The Action Plan is to integrate the city’s 120 featured model areas, and then, based on the types of the model areas, form five featured corridors of the Oujiang River, the Feiyun River, the Aojiang River, the Seaside, and the Nanxi River & Wenzhou-Rui’an Canal.

The Wenzhou Municipal Special Group Office for the Work of Integration and Improvement of the Urban and Rural Features stated that from January to May this year, the city’s first batch of 26 urban and rural featured model areas were in normal construction, and among the 353 construction projects involved, 238 had been started and 79 had been finished, with settled investment of about 2.8bn yuan and 43.91% of the investment progress being completed. Among them, the Yueqing Middle Canal Feature Area and the Dongtou Strait Concentric Common Prosperity Featured Area projects had more rapidly developed, with over 65% of their whole investment being settled. The Chanjie Street-Wuma Street-Gongyuan Road Traditional Featured Area in Lucheng District had successfully passed the provincial acceptance inspection and been listed in the first batch of provincial urban featured model areas.
