One important component of the vitality of Jyväskylä city centre are the people living there. The Vision of the Centre, drawn up for the development of the city centre, stipulates that the aim is to increase the number of inhabitants in the city centre through infill development. The goal is to double the number of inhabitants from 15,000 to 30,000.  In the city centre, there is an exceptional number of zoning projects underway, a total of 14.  Most of these will enable housing-based infill construction.
