GOOD DEVELOPMENT PRACTICES FROM THE MUNICIPALITY OF DIOS-OLYMPUS

The Municipality of Dion-Olympus, in the context of the continuous elaboration of projects for the improvement of the quality of the residents’ life and visitors’ experience in the Municipality, has already implemented a series of good practices, while being in the development phase and subsequent corresponding projects. Specifically, utilizing the program of the European Union “WiFi4EU”, three points within the Municipality, in the communities of Leptokarya, Litochoro and Platamonas, have already gained free wireless internet access. This program started initially in 70 municipalities of Greece, among them it was the Municipality of Dion-Olympus. The program created nodes for the reproduction of free internet signal in public places, while there is the provision for the installation of nodes in all the twelve communities of the Municipality.  The municipality, implementing the planning of the Mayor Vangelis Gerolioliou, proceeded to the modernization of 15 urban bus stops, in order to improve the service provided for the citizens of the Municipality. The project, funded by the “PhiloDimos 2” program of the Ministry of Interior, concerns urban bus stops  in the three municipal units of the Municipality, specifically 5 stops in East Olympus, 8 stops in  Dion and 2 stops in  Litochoro. According to the Deputy Mayor for Development, Planning & Finance of the Municipality, Mr Dimitris Patsiarikas, among others, new shelters will be installed, along with  lighting through a photovoltaic system, so that passengers may have  safely at the bus stop at night, while reducing the environmental footprint. In terms of their design, these are innovative, functional “new generation” shelters, consisted of new seats, providing  protection to the users of the town buses from the weather conditions, while waiting, offering visibility in all directions. At the same time, at these new urban bus stops, there is the provision of free wireless internet access. A new program is about the protection of stray pets. The Municipality of Dion-Olympus has placed a number of houses, in various places throughout the Municipality, so that pets (mainly stray dogs), have a shelter from the cold. It is noted that the winters are particularly harsh in the “shadow” of the highest mountain in Greece, both for the residents and – much more – for the stray animals of the wider area, while the study of the municipal shelter for stray pets is underway.
