Municipality of Penteli

« Municipality of Penteli » takes part in the European Local Democracy Week - a paneuropean event coordinated by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe - as « Partner city »

The Mayor of Penteli is Mrs Dimitra Kechagia. The municipality is part of the Regional Division of Northern Attica and a member of the Regional Union of Municipalities of Attica. Penteli is said to be "The Lung" of Attica. In our Municipality there are suburban forests, groves, squares and parks. A total of 50 acres of organised public spaces, 350 acres of urban green spaces, and 30 acres of organised areas of leisure and sports facilities. Part of the morphology of the Municipality are streams, which, in addition to natural rainwater pipes, are an elongated axis of greenery and free promenade, which cross the urban fabric and provide the possibility of recreation and reconnection with the local natural environment. Both the Penteli-Chalandri stream and Mount Pentelikon are key components of the city’s identity, as they unite the urban with the suburban green and the water element, forming a natural grid that improves the quality of life and the environmental conditions. Therefore, our Municipality, due to its location and morphology, inevitably faces and manages civil protection problems deriving during the summer months from often wild forest fires and during the winter months due to heavy snowfall.
