A new picture of a park city that integrates urban and rural areas and covers all areas is slowly unfolding in Dadukou.
Reshaping regional value “Park Dadukou, Colorful Art Bay” is accelerating
From the old industrial base of the “Ten Mile Steel City” to an ecological and livable modern new city, the urban transformation of Dadukou District has taken more than 10 years.
On the basis of early exploration and accumulation, how to further shape the city image and regional value that matches the positioning of the central city, and how to take responsibility and show its role in promoting the construction of a modern new Chongqing is another must-answer question given to Dadukou District in the new era.
In this regard, Dadukou is also anchoring the construction goal of “Park Dadukou, Colorful Art Bay” and writing vigorously:

Chongqing Rail Transit Line 18 has begun trial operation without passengers. Rail Transit Line 21 and Line 29 are in the early stages. The work is accelerating and will be fully integrated into the “Chongqing Half-Hour Commuting Circle”. The “eight vertical and eight horizontal” backbone road network is taking shape at an accelerated pace. Nodal projects such as Diaoyuzui Interchange and Chenjiage Interchange have been completed and put into operation. The second phase of the Jinsheng Road Network and Chongqing Steel North-South Arterial Road and other projects have been successfully opened to traffic.

Instead, you can see the picture of a beautiful city full of greenery, livable and suitable for business. “Park Dadukou, Colorful Art Bay” has replaced “steel” and become the new pronoun of this city.
Rebuilding the quality of human settlements and giving residents a new look to enjoy a new life
“The community is clean and tidy, with all the facilities for fitness and children’s play, and there are many old neighbors. It’s more comfortable to live here.” Not long ago, Aunt Chen, who had left Dongzheng Community in Yuejin Village Street for more than 20 years, moved back with her family. . In recent years, many people like Aunt Chen have moved back to Dadukou.
The renovation of old communities is connected to people’s livelihood and well-being, and to urban development.
Since 2020, Dadukou District has taken the opportunity of in-depth implementation of urban renewal and upgrading, adhered to the renovation concept of “turning old into nostalgia”, and in accordance with the overall goal of “five-year task, three-year completion”, high-quality promotion of 24 areas in the district , 1.37 million square meters of old community renovation, striving to transform a number of old communities with “characteristics, history, and memories” so that the people can enjoy a new life.
Where will the money come from for such a large-scale centralized renovation in a short period of time? How to coordinate demands from multiple parties?
Dadukou District has innovatively explored a set of diversified fund-raising methods of “superior subsidies, district-level supporting facilities, residents’ contributions, and social fundraising”. At the same time, it has strengthened the coordination of the four parties of “government, residents, three divisions, and enterprises” to explore joint creation and strive to Achieve “each serving a dish and sharing a table” to ensure sustainable development.
Among them, the government takes the lead, coordinating fund raising, communication and coordination, monitoring and supervision, and exploring new governance ideas such as “party building + property management” and “evaluation + rewards”, so that the old communities can not only be renovated smoothly, but also be managed well in the future. Residents play the leading role, responding to the needs of the people by asking the people for “what to change”, asking the people for ideas “how to change”, and asking the people for “how good the changes will be”, dynamically optimizing and adjusting plans, and stimulating people’s enthusiasm for participation. . The “three divisions” will participate together to give full play to the professional service advantages of planners, architects, and engineers to promote the renovation and upgrading of old communities in Dadukou with high quality; enterprises will work together to attract social forces to participate through public service provision and the realization of idle resources. invest.
In addition, the district also adheres to the principle of “one project, one feature, one street, one bright spot” during the renovation, focusing on protecting and highlighting unique urban memories such as historical background and regional characteristics, and preventing “the same phenomenon in a thousand cities” during the renovation, so that The city retains memories and allows the masses to remember nostalgia. For example, Dongzheng District integrates the history of “Steel City Development” into the community environment; Baishatuo District protects historical relics from the revolutionary period and reshapes the style of Baishatuo Old Street.
Today, the renovation work of 24 areas covering 1.37 million square meters in the district has been fully launched, benefiting 26,542 households. Among them, 15 areas covering 1.13 million square meters have been completed. It is expected that the renovation of 24 areas will be completed in the first half of next year. Dadukou District won the municipal government’s 2022 annual inspection incentives due to its remarkable results in the renovation of old communities.
Reconstructing the harmonious countryside and creating a “return to the garden and countryside” in the city
The “Jin’ao Pastoral” in the golden autumn is colorful and picturesque.
“It used to be a barren mountain, but now it has changed a lot. It has beautiful pastoral landscape, rich farming experience, and is basically overcrowded every weekend.” Since the construction of the “Jin’ao Pastoral” complex project was launched in Dadukou District, Zhang Jing, the person in charge of Jiangshang Yunqi B&B, is one of the first people to “eat crabs”.
“Jin’ao Pastoral – Bashu Beautiful Courtyard Demonstration Film” is an important part of the “Jin’ao Pastoral” complex.
Last year, Dadukou District implemented the construction of a beautiful courtyard demonstration film in Bashu in accordance with the construction standards of 4A-level scenic spots and the five requirements of “ecology, wisdom, history, nostalgia, and three governance”, and built 108 farmhouses in the “Jin’ao Pastoral” complex project area. The renovation will focus on renovating and beautifying house courtyards and village public spaces, upgrading surrounding functions and environmental facilities, promoting the “three improvements” of farm house quality, courtyard appearance, and village value, and creating a harmonious and beautiful “Peach Blossom Land” in Sichuan and Chongqing cities.
At present, the quality of 108 farmhouses has been improved, three key courtyards have been built, including Xianjiayuan, Chaotianzui Courtyard, and Shiziping.
