Lucknow: UP CM Yogi Adityanath reviewed the progress of various projects in an important meeting with the Urban Development Department on Thursday. He also gave necessary guidelines, which are the following:

● Parking of vehicles in cities is becoming a challenge. The government, administration and the public need to work together to find a solution. It must be ensured that vehicles are parked only in designated parking spots, not on the roadside. If necessary, enforcement actions should be taken.

● Multi-level parking lots are proving very useful. Ensure to include commercial spaces in multi-level parking. Create plans for new parking spaces only after studying local requirements. Develop ‘Parking Space Rules’ for better parking facilities in the future.

● Ensure that no bikes, cars, or taxis are parked on the roadside anywhere. Arrange a designated spot for street vendors. Immediate action should be taken against illegal taxi stands. Encourage the use of electric buses in urban transport.

● Planned efforts are expected to be made for the rehabilitation of slums. Identify one slum in each municipal corporation and prepare a plan for the development of a multi-storey residential complex there, with basic facilities like schools, markets, parks, etc nearby. The market developed here should be allotted to the families of this slum. The responsibility for managing the parks built should also be entrusted to them. This will lead to the rehabilitation of slums in a phased manner across the state, significantly improving the living standards of the people here.

● Encroachment on drains is the primary cause of waterlogging. Wherever there is encroachment on drains, find a solution by communicating with the public. While taking action, ensure that the concerned family does not face unnecessary inconvenience in entering or exiting the house.

● Improperly placed advertising hoardings in urban areas not only spoil the city’s beauty but also become a cause of accidents every day. It needs to be organized. It should be ensured that no hoardings are placed on top of any building in any urban area. LED displays should be installed in place of the currently prevalent hoardings. This technology-based system will be convenient for advertising agencies, advertisers, local administration and the public. No type of advertising hoarding should be allowed anywhere except in designated areas.

● Keeping in view the increase in urban population, population density and the expansion of urban bodies in recent years, there is a need for cadre restructuring in urban bodies. Population should be the basis when determining the new arrangement.

● For the smooth running of the system in all Municipal Corporations, Municipalities and Nagar Panchayats, the availability of adequate manpower is essential. Whether it’s EO or sanitation workers, there should be no vacancies anywhere. Accountability for every task should be clearly defined.

● With the spirit of ease of living, ‘Smart City Mission’ has a big role in providing a better environment with ‘smart options’ for a quality life with basic facilities to all citizens. Efforts are underway to upgrade 17 cities in the state to Smart Cities. Each project must be completed on time and meet quality standards, ensuring physical verification of project quality as well.

● Under the Smart City initiative, special centers are being established to fulfill the needs of senior citizens such as exercise, reading, refreshment, discussion and to fulfill banking needs. It’s crucial to complete this initiative promptly as it will be highly beneficial for senior citizens.

● The efforts to install CCTV cameras in cities have shown positive results in crime control, supported by good public cooperation. There is a need to expand and enhance this initiative further.

● It is crucial to enhance efforts to increase green cover in urban areas. We should strive to make the state’s cities environmentally friendly and improve the quality of life for citizens. Achieving this goal requires public participation. With this aim in mind, we should develop an urban green and park development policy.
