Rødberg is a mountainous town surrounded by picturesque natural landscapes, yet most of its public space is covered in asphalt and dominated by cars. The town has developed around the hydropower plant Nore I, yet lacks effective connection with the water. It is an outdoor activities area, a gateway to some of the most beautiful natural and cultural sceneries in Buskerud, yet has no liveablle and attractive outdoor spaces for people to meet and spend time. All of these challenges we see also as a vital potential for Rødberg’s future development as an attractive and productive hub and destination in the region.
‘Destination Rødberg’ is our vision for Rødberg as an attractive place where urban and rural dynamics mix and interconnect.
Our strategy is crafted around re-discovering the qualities and the resources of the town and the region and re-introducing them in the present life and environment for beneficial and sustainable future development.
