Background of Area

Huitian area is east to north seven, west to Haidian District Shangzhuang Town and Dongbei Wangxiang, south to Changping District and Chaoyang District, north to Shahe Town. It has two towns and three streets. The total area is 63.16 square kilometers, including 130 Community (administrative village). The Tiantongyuan area covers an area of 27.8 square kilometers, including Tiantongyuan South and North Street and Dongxiaokou Town. The Huilongguan area is 35.36 square kilometers and now includes Huilongguan Town and Huoying Street. The administrative division adjustment is expected to divide Huilongguan Town into 3 streets of Huilongguan, Shigezhuang and Longzeyuan.

Along with the acceleration of the urbanization process, especially the rapid development of the surrounding Zhongguancun Science City and the Future Science City, the population of the area continues to gather. At present, the total population of the Huitian area is 1.089 million, among which the resident population is 832,000 and the floating population is 257,000. The number of people transferred to the central city is about 295,000. From a structural point of view, the population aged 18 to 45 in the Huilongguan area and Tiantongyuan area accounted for 70% and 65% of the total population respectively. From the academic point of view, the college education in Huilongguan and Tiantongyuan districts accounted for 65% and 57% of the total population respectively. From the employment point of view, more than 65% of the population is employed in Haidian, Xicheng and other foreign areas.

The population density has increased, and some problems have become increasingly prominent in this area: First, traffic congestion, the morning and evening peaks are more than an hour longer than the city average, and the full-day congestion time is up to 8 hours. Second, the occupation is unbalanced, and more than 80% of the resident population work in other areas such as Zhongguancun, CBD, and Wangjing. Third, there are insufficient service facilities, especially the lack of high-quality cultural, commercial, educational and training institutions that meet the needs of local residents.

In order to solve the above problems in the Huitian area, in August 2018, the Beijing Municipal Government researched and formulated the “Three-Year Action Plan for Optimizing the Public Service and Infrastructure in the Huilongguan Tiantongyuan Area (2018-2020)” (hereinafter referred to as the “Plan”). The Plan firmly grasps the development pain points in the Huitian area, focusing on building large-scale community governance demonstrations and building a beautiful and happy new home that matches the world-class harmonious and livable capital, which can effectively enhance the people's sense of acquisition, happiness and security.

Under the guidance of the "Plan", in accordance with the requirements of the district committee and the district government, Changping District actively implemented the special action task of "resolving and rectifying and promoting". The district special office issued the "Zhangping District" on December 13, 2018. "Special Action to Further Promote the Implementation of the "Improvement" Work (Trial)", and in January 2019 issued the "Notice on the First Batch of Enhancement Projects for the 2019 Special Campaign for the Special Action for Resolving and Remediation in Changping District" . All towns (streets) and enterprises in Tiantian District collected the first batch of upgrading projects in 2019. The project focuses on the convenience of residents in the Huitian area and the construction of green parks. It focuses on key areas such as the surrounding villages along the parade village and the key villages along the urban and rural areas. . Do not pursue the large volume of the project, the large amount of funds, based on "small and convenient", highlighting "small but fine", to reflect the initiative to respond to the concerns of the masses, focusing on solving a number of problems around the masses and enabling the masses to quickly feel.
