Around Sayamashi Station

Sayamashi Station West Exit District Redevelopment and Maintenance Project
The area around the west exit of Sayamashi Station was dangerous because the rotary was undeveloped and the sidewalk was not secured, so a redevelopment and maintenance project was planned.1998, The Sayama City Station West Exit District Redevelopment and Maintenance Project Council has decided on a policy of "developing the station front that is unique to Sayama City by clearly differentiating it from other stations along the railway line and incorporating nature and scenery."However, it became an administration and a person scheduled to be enforcedUrban regeneration mechanismIn response, there was a movement from citizens, including landowners and city council members, to request a review, and it became unpredictable whether the plan could proceed as it is.Citizens' groups of plan reviewersSayama Town Development Network(There is a group that promotes the Sayamashi station west exit redevelopment project in the promotion group), and several groups belonged to it.The main request for the review is the reduction of the budget scale.Among them, on January 2006, 1, a written opinion was submitted requesting a review by 23 landowners, but in the list that was revealed later, there are actually 71 landowners, which is controversial. It became.2007XNUM X Month X NUM X Day,Seibu RailwayIs "2007 Railway Business Capital Investment PlanAnnounced.Among them, the Sayamashi station building improvement work accompanying the Sayamashi station west exit redevelopment project2007Survey and design every time2008Start of construction,2009The plan to be completed was announced.20074 of the monthSayama City Assembly Member ElectionThere was no change in the composition of the city council, which is dominated by city council members who advocate redevelopment and maintenance projects, and the public will to promote the plan was shown.On June 6, the same year, the rights conversion plan for the Sayamashi Station West Exit redevelopment project was announced.Minister of Land, Infrastructure and TransportApproved by, construction started in September 20072009Town opening2011The construction is scheduled to be completed and the construction will start in earnest ("Public Relations Sayama" July 19 issue).In the Sayama mayoral election on July 7, the same year, the incumbent who advocated the promotion of the west exit redevelopment projectYukinari NakagawaThe mayor was re-elected and the West Exit redevelopment project will continue to be promoted.The demolition work of the station building began in September of the same year, and the stores around the station were closed, residents were relocated, and the land was leveled in order to secure land for the station building construction.2008Station building renovation work started in November.In the same month, a temporary bus stop was set up due to the improvement of the road.From November to December of the same year, the "nickname of the town" was solicited.2009In March, it was decided to be "Sky Terrace".2010On March 3, the town opened in the west exit area of ​​Sayamashi Station, and the new station building and some facilities were put into service.Bus stop maintenance, etc.2012Completed by July, the west exit area redevelopment project is completed.A completion commemorative event was held from the 7th to the 14th of the same month.[11]..On the 18th, the complex public facility "Sayama City Citizens' Exchange Center" was opened, and all the facilities developed by the West Exit District Redevelopment Project were put into service, and the project was completed.2014On May 5, Sayama City Station West Exit Sky Terrace won the Excellence Award in the 12 Cityscape Awards Urban Space Category.[12][13]..This is an example of a station square along the private railway line, which had hardly received any application for the award, and attracted attention as a new model for the issue of what should be the future urban redevelopment in the suburbs of the city. Keeping in mind the harmful effects of existing redevelopment projects that can be seen nationwide, such as "constructing a large redevelopment building, recruiting tenants, and leaving the creation of the flow of people to the commercial facilities that have moved in", such uniqueness We are looking for a city that is suitable for the front door of Sayama City, which is different from the ideal way of redevelopment.Instead of attracting large-scale commercial facilities to the station square, which has high commercial value, we have set up a "citizen square" that is conscious of the connection with the existing urban area, secure a new place for citizen exchange and excursion, and gained by the height difference of the terrain.

Sayama City Station East Exit Land Readjustment Project
The area around the east exit in front of Sayama City Station is said to be very intricate and access to the station is poor, and the land readjustment project has been discussed for many years, saying that a station front suitable for the face of the city should be created.There was a conflict between the residents and the government who were reluctant to evict, but after that the project proceeded and the road was constructed. A part of the road was opened in 2010, and the construction site reached the east exit station square in 2013.

Iriso Station area maintenance project
Iriso Station was originally opened in a rural area in the old days, and there was no big city planning at the time of opening, and there were shops and houses around the station.Meiji Era-Taisho eraSince then, more than 100 years have passed since it became mixed and crowded.While there are many people and cars passing by, the roads leading to the station are all narrow and the sidewalks are not maintained.The front of the station has only an extremely small space since it opened, and it has a rotary andStation squareBecause there is noTransit BusIs also in a dangerous state.For this reason1980With the completion of the overpass, redevelopment studies began, but1996There was no progress even after the opening of the west exit of.On the west exit sideMusashinoFarmland that leaves the impression ofWooded areaHowever, it was diverted to parking lots and material storage areas, and there was concern about disorderly land use that was not suitable for the station front.
2000 eraAfter entering, the Iriso Station East Exit District Development Project and the Iriso Station Area Land Readjustment Project were planned.Sayama city1995Although a part of the school grounds of Sayama City Irima Elementary School (at that time) was set up and the "Iriso Station Area Development Office" was set up and efforts were made to reach consensus with the landowners and residents, some landowners strongly opposed it. , No concrete progress was made.2008In October, we decided on the basic concept of developing about 10 hectares of the east exit area of ​​Iriso Station using the land readjustment project method, but since consensus building with the landowner did not proceed after that, we decided to proceed with the project by the land acquisition method. Conversion.2011In March, in the business areaSayama City Irima Elementary SchoolWas closed down, and the school site (1 square meters) was used as a relocation / alternative site for redevelopment, and preparations were made for the start of the redevelopment project.From August to November of the same year, an intention confirmation survey was conducted for all landowners.There are many opinions that the north side of the east exit area agrees with the start of business compared to the south side.Imano Agricultural Cooperative-Sayama teaIndustrial Agricultural CooperativeHanno Shinkin BankSince the Iriso branch and others have indicated that they have agreed to the land acquisition, they have set a policy of preliminarily developing about 4 hectares on the north side.However, there was still no agreement with the major landowner in front of the station (1 corporation and 2 individuals) in terms of the amount of land acquisition, and the major landowner in front of the station expressed his intention to oppose the business.2013In May, Sayama City announced that it would abandon the implementation of both plans and freeze the plans because the cooperation of the landowners could not be obtained and the future outlook was uncertain.[19][20].. "We will continue to position maintenance as an important policy issue for the city" (Iriso Station Area Development Office), but in October of the same year, the "Iriso Station Area Development Office" was closed and moved to the Sayama City Office.
