Projects in Action

Afula has planted seeds in the national awareness as the acknowledged capital of the valley and as a leading city in which it is fun to live.

The thrust of development continues and strengthens! Projects in infrastructure, building, start-up, commerce and services take their place alongside the development of social services and the concern for the individual from birth to maturity that provide residents with a quality of life and a standard of living as seen in the leading cities in Israel.

We strive to increase the population of Afula to 100,000 residents, while always improving and developing.

Projects such as the municipal park for leisure activities, the municipal sport and relaxation center that includes the city pool, the city soccer stadium and resort, the culture hall – all are leaders in the north. The music conservatory where 800 young people study instruments and vocal music combined in an orchestra and ensembles, the roster of after-school activities and tutoring that take place in three community centers, the municipal art gallery that shows works and exhibits by the most prestigious artists in Israel all provide the basis for the quality of life and the leisure activities in the city.

A new youth center that serves as an orientation facility develops and aids young people both during their military service, and later as young families. There are also a center for parents and children, a center for mature residents, a memorial center for the military fallen, all of which support and serve their distinct populations.

The Atidim 2010 Project was recently announced and will be located near the railroad station that will be built, including a high-quality employment area that will give precedence to hi-tech entrepreneurs, a technology center, and centers for logistics and for the technological enrichment for the city's youth that will advance sophisticated industry in Afula.

Afula is blessed with a developed commercial life and is a magnet for city and valley residents. Numerous restaurants and coffee shops add a culinary side to the mosaic of services that residents enjoy.

Residential building continues at a high pace including apartment houses and sites for private homes. Special emphasis is placed on the city's appearance. Afula won Five Stars of Beauty for five years in a row. Playgrounds, boulevards and squares, plantings, illumination and gardens have made Afula into a blossoming, well-groomed city.

All of these advantages say one thing – this is Afula's time. Afula – the city that is fun to live in.
