To wonder about the future Saint-Germain imposes a careful reflection on the existing site. Indeed, its future can only be imagined by taking under consideration what is already present. For instance, we have imagined to turn the A road 13 into a more urban road, thus becoming the new support of the economical development linking the north to the south of the city. Working from the existing enable to replace the forest at the heart of the territory, where it belongs. In the future, where more than ever, city, nature and infrastructures will be inseparable, the relationship linking Saint-Germain to its forest will guide their development into the Greater Paris.

The study has been the subject of an exhibition and debates in December 2012. From the propositions studied, we invited inhabitants to rediscover their territory and to ask to themselves this ambitious question : How do you want Saint-Germain to be tomorrow ?
