The elaboration of the Ski Center Comprehensive Development Plan had to be consistent with natural, human and financial resources. It was based on multilevel analysis and required knowledge and expertise in spatial planning, ecology, economics and tourism management. The implementation of the project was expected to provoke substantial changes in the town, so the participation of a broad range of actors had to be guaranteed. Public discussions in different stages of the project elaboration were considered important. Public Planning Forum (PPF) as a tool supporting decision-making process was implemented at the earliest possible stage of project development (midterm stage).
