Vélizy-Villacoublay: an attractive environment

With over 20,000 inhabitants and six residential neighbourhoods (Mozart, Le Mail, Louvois, le Clos, Vélizy le Bas, la Pointe Ouest), the town of Vélizy-Villacoublay enjoys a privileged position. The town's residential areas, business park (INOVEL PARC) and shopping centres, all on edge of the Meudon national forest and at only 11 kilometres away from Paris... all these elements combined to give this city a sense of balance which is unique in the Paris region. The Town Council is committed to preserving this special environment and pays particular attention to green spaces, but also to the Inovel Parc economic activity center.

Quality of life and social harmony

Providing the inhabitants of Vélizy with a pleasant, fulfilling environment and quality of life is the common goal which unites a wide range of aims and initiatives: encouraging children's development through a Local Educational Project, helping teenagers to flourish, providing a range of activities and home services for senior citizens, offering high quality cultural programming with "L'Onde" - Theatre and Art Centre -, as well as maintaining the sports, cultural and leisure facilities for more than 80 associations totalling approximately 10,000 members.
A number of major property development projects will be undertaken in the coming years: new projects which play an essential part in preserving and improving the town's living environment and in developing its economic competitiveness.

An effective, diversified transport network

Our bus network is undergoing changes, with alterations being made in partnership with Phébus-Transport in order to provide even higher quality service and better serve the needs of local residents.
Due to open in 2012, the forthcoming Viroflay/Vélizy-Villacoublay/Châtillon tramline is one of the town's major projects and represents a firm commitment to the future. With a capacity of over 4,000 passengers an hour, this new means of transport represents a conclusive resource for the town's development.  

With all these advantages, Vélizy-Villacoublay is ready to rise to the challenges of the 21st century and preserve its quality of life...
