After the incorporation of Taichung City and Taichung County, to promote the development of Fengyuan region and meet local economic development needs, re-development of large scale public lands were conducted to introduce new urban functions and to strengthen the development orientation of Fengyuan. Fengyuan camp of the army (Taichung Region Joint A-type Vehicle Maintenance Plant) is located on the intersection of Fengyuan Boulevard and Zhongzheng Road and it the major gate of Fengyuan. It has been under isolation and low usage status for a long time. To promote the development of Fengyuan region, after confirming with Ministry of Defense on its willingness to release this land, Taichung City Government initiated related city planning and review. With the developmental plans of Greater Taichung 123 and Fengyuan Sub-metropolis and the geographical location and transportation advantage of this area, Taichung City Government plans to make it the new core gateway area to spur Fengyuan’s economic development. Under visionary guidance and the consideration of regional balance development, appropriate land usage and new industries that are conducive to overall development will be introduced to reinvigorate this area, creating regional development features, enhancing the utility value of urban lands, and bringing about the flourishing development of Fengyuan and its surrounding regions in order to achieve the goal of balancing the regional development of Greater Taichung.
