Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
Zone restricted for the cars on 22nd of September is part of the street near the central park. Currently this street is not highly used, but there is an idea to try out pedestrialization of this street.

Sport competition of the closed for cars street will be the main event during this day.
