The City Council and the City Assembly adopted the decision for starting of development the Sustainable urban mobility plan-SUMP in November 2015. The process of development of SUMP is ongoing and we expect that it will be finished and adopted this year. City of Kruševac will be the first city in Serbia that will have the SUMP.
