A new city

A skeleton plan to enlarge the area and population of the city
of Beit Shemesh. The city is planned to reach a population 120,000
and 20,000 dunam in area.
The plan proposes a new city center and new neighborhoods
on the northern hills of the exciting city. The plan is based on
the inclusion of the valleys and the forested slopes
in the texture of the city. (1990 - 1993)

Initiator: Ministry of Housing
