suburb?[edit]

A rather remarkable stub - are you serious that in Norway a suburb has a capital?!? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Andre Engels (talkcontribs) 05:25, August 22, 2002

who said bærum was a suburb? bærum is a county of sorts. when you say suburb i imagine big flats/apartments. bærum has forests and houses. it's sort of like a rich, american suburb, only more diverce and less dencly populated. a lot of the people here does also work in bærum. there are suburbs in norway to, but they are closer to the city, and (i think) on the east side, not on the west. (which is the rich side :p) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.166.254.195 (talk) 17:14, September 3, 2006 (UTC)

A suburb is a residential areas outside larger cities, and as such, Baerum has to be considered a suburb (compare the importance of Baerum to Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger, cities which has app. the number of inhabitants). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.161.77.36 (talk) 09:46, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
In short: Bærum is not and never has been a city, it is more of a district within which there happens to be many agglomerated settlements. Punkmorten (talk) 17:55, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
bærum is actually a city named sandvika.--84.208.75.65 (talk) 19:19, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Bærum is not a city named Sandvika. Sandvika is the main city in Bærum. Sandvika achieved city status after meeting criteria regarding number of inhabitants and infrastructure. Sandvika also has its own city council, so yes it is indeed a city.

Addressing the other discussion regarding suburb and county: It is more a county than a suburb according to American standards of suburbs and counties. Driving pass Orange County outside LA from time to time I do see a lot of resemblance. Following dictionary definitions a county is also a region consistent of several places, while a suburb is referred to as the residential ares outside a city (which would rather be Holmenkollen and Bygdøy). As noted above, one of you said that Bærum has their own industry and city center with many people working inside Bærum. This also has to be taken into consideration. I conclude that Bærum is a county, not a suburb. Chrisniel91 (talk) 21:43, 30 March 2013 (UTC)Chrisniel91Chrisniel91 (talk) 21:43, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

notable people: Line Victoria Sverdrup[edit]

Who is Line Victoria Sverdrup? She does not show up any where as either model or ski jumper. I suggest we remove her from the wiki as notable person Chrisniel91 (talk) 22:00, 30 March 2013 (UTC)Chrisniel91Chrisniel91 (talk) 22:00, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

notable people: Princess Martha Louise[edit]

The royal family has moved from Lommedalen to London. I suggest removing her as notable people. Perhaps just put a note saying they have moved. FlyttetChrisniel91 (talk) 22:06, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
