Cooperation between the municipalities
Cross-border exchange involves regular meetings of the City Council with the municipalities in the Canton of Zurich.
Cooperation between the core city and the surrounding municipalities (i.e. within the functional space) is becoming increasingly important in many areas (such as infrastructure, spatial planning, etc.). Challenges in key political areas can no longer be adequately resolved within established political boundaries.
The City of Zurich is very interested in an intensive partnership-based exchange with the municipalities in the Canton of Zurich. There is an urgent need in many policy areas for thought and planning to be applied beyond the city boundaries. Against this background and as a result of the European project CityRegion.Net, the City Council of Zurich has met the Municipalities of the Canton of Zurich twice a year since 2010. Current topics and issues are discussed in areas that require cross-border coordination or cooperation.
