Urban Development Initiative (UrDI) For the Canaan Area of Port-Au-Prince, Neighbourhood Plan: Onaville, 2016
Onaville, located on the far right of the Canaan area, is the neighbourhood with a medium population density (3.500 population per km2). The upper part is a bit hilly but still moderate and development is possible. Onaville does not face many environmental constraints and therefore has a high potential of becoming a rich area for urban development. While Onaville holds few sports facilities, public spaces and some retail services, more is needed to support the population growth of the area.
The following land use proposals in this section are based on a participatory process within three months’ time-frame. The UN-Habitat team maps the existing situation and the community validates and proposes ideas. The urban Lab rechecks the suggested interventions and modifies if necessary. After that, a neighbourhood assembly is organized to showcase the overall vision and a land use is later developed.
