Perm Strategic Masterplan
The goal of the Perm Strategic Masterplan (PSM) is to create a strategic framework and to establish the foundation for profound and lasting change in Perm. It is to inspire and initiate ongoing transformation and repairs of this historic city.
For nearly a decade now Perm has continued to prosper economically, increasing and diversifying its influence locally and nationally. While this success is to be celebrated, it has also highlighted isolated and secluded distribution of growth and renewal within various pockets of the city.

The aim of the PSM is to deliver a world-class model of urban restructuring and guidance which combines best design, technology, environmental and socio-economic development, while satisfying the urgent requirements vital to the dignity, integrity and aspirations of the people of Perm. Key to success is to transform Perm into a city of thriving, diverse communities and source of local, regional and national pride.
