Survey for residents of Riga about the habits and possibilities at evenings and nights

Currently, the City Development department of the Riga State City Municipality is conducting a feasibility study about evening and nighttime planning and management in Riga; it will serve as a basis for further development of evening and nighttime topics in the city!

In recent years, this field of study has become more relevant in connection with the change of work, leisure, and entertainment habits. More and more people work, relax and commute past the end of traditional working hours (after 18.00 in the evenings and at night until 06.00), therefore issues of health and sleep have become more relevant in this period. People’s needs for services outside of traditional working hours are also increasing, and the rise of the number of people outdoors at evenings and nights increases security risks.

By completing this survey, you will help us understanding the habits, observations, and other aspects of life at evenings and nights in Riga so that, when planning them, the municipality is better able to address the most important for residents!

Please note!
  • The survey will run until 10.05.2024.
  • Your answers will be anonymous and will be analysed in a general way.
  • It takes 15 – 20 minutes to fill out the survey.

Where should electric scooter parking be set up in Rīga?

To ensure the safety and order of road users on the city’s streets, parking zones for electric scooters and electric bicycles are gradually being introduced in Rīga so that residents and renters of these mobility devices can park them safely, conveniently and without disturbing other road users.

The first zones have been set up in consultation with rental companies, at the most popular starting and finishing points of trips, as well as at locations where shared mobility tools most often cause inconvenience to pedestrians and other road users.

Citizens are invited to mark on the map their suggestions where these areas should be located, with an address and a photo of the location. Please note that electric scooter and bicycle parking areas are created on pavements between urban landscaping elements, where they do not obstruct pedestrians or cyclists.

What should the Anniņmuiža forest park be like?

The prospective Anniņmuiža Forest Park includes the present Anniņmuiža Forest and Vecanniņmuiža Park.

On 14 June, a public consultation was held to hear residents’ views on the prospective layout of the Forest Park. Only 14 people attended the consultation, so a survey is being organised to find out more public opinion.
