The architect Dana Burstein, who is the head of planning at Eden (The Jerusalem Center Development Company), leads this tour on HaNevi’im Street toward East Jerusalem. HaNevi’im Street is one of the oldest thoroughfares in Jerusalem, which links the downtown area with the business center of the Arab population and the Old City. It also serves as an important partition for the ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods in the Western part of the city. During the tour, Burstein will describe the special role the street has played as a city seam that links diverse populations. She will also present the future plans for the street that the Jerusalem Municipality is currently advancing, as well as works carried out by Eden in order to develop the space on both its western and eastern parts. While walking along the street, Burstein will talk about municipal planning issues in Jerusalem which can be witnessed on the ground: preservation as opposed to development, traffic in the downtown area, public involvement, and planning for a variety of different populations. The possibility of joining both parts of the street will also be discussed.
