The J & K administration is trying to respond to the needs of common people and also to provide them with opportunities for economic growth.
In this direction recently Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha inaugurated the two-day National Workshop of Smart Cities Mission on ‘Streets & Public Spaces’ in Srinagar.
He said that cities must be flexible to respond to the needs of citizens, competition and changes in the market and nurture core competencies for economic growth.
He expressed gratitude to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for organizing the national workshop in Srinagar. He welcomed the Mayors, Municipal Commissioners, Chief Executing Officers and officers representing 100 Smart Cities to J&K for knowledge sharing and experiential learning through project visits of Srinagar Smart City.
Most important element of a city is its people. With infrastructure and modern facilities, it is equally important to have vibrant public spaces to enhance aesthetics, ensure quality of life and bring positive change, solace in the lives of the citizens.
Srinagar Smart City is a role model for other cities of the country with impactful pedestrian plazas, recreational spaces by the waterfronts. One can feel the soul of this city with excellent urban design of streets and public spaces.
