Cities are complex systems and face various internal and external challenges on their path towards sustainability and resilience. These are characterized by ambiguous problem definitions or unclear, conflicting and dynamically changing goals. Hence, long-term thinking and forward-looking action as well as flexibility and adaptability are indispensable in urban planning and development. In order to elaborate broadly accepted strategies for future, especially the involvement of citizen’s perspectives and needs is a core concern for actors in urban planning. While case-related citizen participation already has a longer tradition, long-term collaboration agreements with citizens in terms of strategic and forward-looking planning is at an early stage. Korneuburg, a medium scale district capital next-door to the metropolis of Vienna, grappled with identity finding between the poles of urbanity and village quality of living, while low municipal budget, considerable population increase, heterogeneous interests and perceptions of its self-image challenged the city. Within a broad participatory process a mission statement for urban planning and a master-plan, containing guidelines for implementation of the desired vision for the next twenty years were elaborated. Finally also an obligation for further collaborative urban decision making – the Charter for citizen participation – emerged as an unexpected spin-off product. This contribution discusses the integrative approach within the project, the dynamics and novelty of the process and associated challenges of long-term oriented collaborative urban development. It is shown that the city not only commits itself to a broadly accepted framework for future urban development in the upcoming decades, but also points the way ahead for a cultural change regarding communication and decision making with citizens. This development calls for new perspectives in thinking, reshaping of cooperation designs and for flexibility, creativity and mutual trust.
