This year, Žďár nad Sázavou will complete a social services center for almost CZK 23 million, which will house an asylum hostel and dormitory for homeless men. The construction, which started last year, will be completed in July, Deputy Mayor Rostislav Dvořák (KDU-ČSL) told reporters today. The city has a total of over CZK 220 million in this year's budget for investments and repairs. The biggest events will include repairs to public areas in the Vodojem housing estate and Nádražní street in the center.

Žďár nad Sázavou with 20,500 inhabitants has an approved budget for this year with total revenues of CZK 562 million and expenditures of CZK 635 million. The city will pay the deficit of 73 million crowns from the money left over from previous years. According to the head of the city's finance department, Tomáš Vlček, the use of savings for important projects is now more advantageous due to the risk of high inflation, which would make these events more expensive in the future.

The street in the Vodojem housing estate has been gradually repaired by the city for two years, this year's stage will be final. The town hall has a budget of CZK 40 million for it. Reconstruction of Nádražní Street with the pedestrian zone leading to the square will also continue, which should cost 11.5 million this year. The city plans to start building a local road near the Saller shopping center and repair the Velký Posměch pond near the new part of the Jamská industrial zone so that it can hold more water.

Photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roof of the city office this year, and the city promises further energy savings from the installation of new technology for water filtration in the indoor pool.

Žďárská radnice will also renovate several playgrounds this year, and is preparing a project with conservationists, for example, for the installation of birdhouses and insect houses in the city. Some school booths should have cameras that allow children to watch the birds. "The city is really not just about those roads and bricks, but also about creating good living conditions," said Mayor Martin Mrkos (Žďár-živé město). According to him, the renewal of field roads will continue, and climbing plants will be added to the fences and walls in the city.
