In an initiative for preparing a better Master Plan 2031, Udaipur Municipal Corporation has requested the state government to extend the date by 15 days, so that more valuable suggestion can be received from the locals. Following the same, a common meeting was called this evening in the seminar hall of UMC, where local corporaters participated to give suggestions of their respective wards.
Today, in this meeting called for taking suggestions for upcoming master Plan 2031, most of the city areas along with prevailing problems were neglected and no appropriate provisions were made.
In the meeting called by Mayor RajniDangi, corporators along with their suggestions stressed on including urban parts, where priority must be given to sewerage, traffic, road network and no-construction zone.
Udaipur Urban Improvement Trust (UIT) is preparing final outlines of Master Plan 2031, drafted on 24th July this year which will cover nearly 125 Villages around the city, covering total area of about 650Sq Km. On implementation of the Plan, UMC governed area would increase to around 100sqkm, presently which is 65sqkm including all the 55 wards.
According to Dinesh Shrimali, Leader (opposition),” UIT must also include or make provisions for No-Construction Zone, so that dwellers of the area can carry out required repairing works of their respective houses, located on banks of Lake Pichola and fatehsagar mainly.”
Archana Sharma, Corporator, BJP, suggested that a proper sewerage system should take over existing one, so that a check can be applied on ever increasing water pollution. She moreover suggested making provisions for facilitating parks and gardens in empty spaces of the town.
Mohammad Ayub Khan, Corporator, Congress, advocated on solving traffic problems of the city areas. He also suggested that all those houses which are in fragile conditions and at least 50 years old must be demolished, and their re-construction should be provisioned in the Master Plan.
Prem Singh Shaktawat, Corporator, BJP, recommended improving quality of road network within the city. As Udaipur is a tourist destination, it can leave a bad impression to its visitors with bumpy roads.
Correction: All houses which are in fragile conditions and 50 years old should be demolished. Before it was written “50 year old buildings should be demolished”. We apologize for the mistake.
