Sofia to grow to 1.4M people by 2020

Date: 20.02.2009

The updated urban development plan of Sofia, presented before the city hall environment committee, envisaged that the number of Sofians will reach 1 377 690 by 2020.

According to Petar Koroumbashev, a Bulgarian Socialist Party municipal councilor, the forecast was highly underestimated. The plan also envisaged for two new cemeteries to be built and for the extension of the cemeteries in Bakurena Fabrika borough and of the Central Sofia Cemeteries park.

Experts have decided not to include in the plan the construction of a new cemetery near the village of Kazichene after people living there protested against such a move.

Another provision in the plan might not be taken well by Sofians, BTA quoted analysts as saying. It envisions shrinking the Zapaden Park by 32ha, which are to be used for construction of low-rise buildings.
