The non-profit organisation Tjärnkraft and the Municipality of Borlänge want to emphasise the area’s positive qualities. To this end artistic commissions will be developed in dialogue with residents in Tjärna Ängar.
Located a few kilometres from central Borlänge, the Tjärna Ängar residential area comprises a great diversity of residents and is a very active community that seeks to strengthen the qualities and raise the profile of the area. There is a feeling that people who don’t live in the area deliberately avoid it on their way to, for example, the sports ground. Why can’t they stop by for a visit?
The multi-dwelling units were built in the early 1970s. The district is characterised by play areas and green spaces. Tjärna Ängar adjoins residential areas such as Jakobsgårdarna and Bullermyren. The municipal housing company Stora Tunabyggen AB has initiated a renovation project entitled New Tjärna Ängar, to renovate flats, existing houses and the surrounding green areas.
Borlänge Planning and Land Office is developing new zoning plans for Tjärna Ängar, including a new urban district park and a new square. The municipality is also planning to provide the area with more dwellings.
