In Be'er-Sheva, a new project, the first of its kind, began to renew the private open spaces adjacent to the residential buildings, especially in the older neighborhoods. This is an initial pilot that started on Masada Road, in the Bet neighborhood, and is expected to expand to additional areas in the city.
Renewal of the private space includes landscape development including economic irrigation and climate-adjusted plants, installation of "green" lighting, development of community gardens and of course supervision and accompaniment of professionals throughout all work. This is a community-environmental project shared by the Be'er-Sheva municipality, the Ministry of the Environment, and the Jewish National Fund. The project is another essential element to strengthen the connection between the residents and the city for the creation of well-maintained spaces.
In addition to the work in the private space, development and upgrading work is being carried out throughout Masada St. between Abba Ahimeir and Tchernichovsky Street. The work includes replacing infrastructure, stratification and road renewal, renovating sidewalks and adding bicycle paths, renovating and replacing lighting poles, placing new street furniture, landscaping, and adding concealed waste bins.
