Doonites will have to become smart.
first session of smart city talks
Buildings with Uttarakhand architecture can extend their heights
Dehradun, 16 Feb 2019; Mayor Sunil Uniyal Gama said residents of Dehradun will have to become smart in order to make their city smart. Mr Gama was adressing the first session of Dehradun Smart City Talks in Graphic Era Hill University as a chief guest.
Mr gama said that for the successful working and management of a smart city it is important that the citizens of that city also become smart. Artificial intelligence and sensors can make smart dustbins but at the end of the day the citizens will have to become smart enough to properly dump the garbage in these dustbins. He added citizen engagement is the most important part of the project. He said that Graphic Era is the biggest educational institute in the state and is doing a commendable job by associating its more than15000 students with this smart city project.
The Vice Chairman of MDDA Dr. Ashsih Shrivastava said that to make Smart City Project a sucess we need to accept it as a citizen revolution rather than a government agenda. The project began around one-and-a-half years ago and is all set to be implemented soon.
Integrated Command Control Centre is the most important element of this project. With the use of artificial intelligence this control room will be able to keep an eye on all the activities of the city and also regulate them. He further added that constructing an iconic building on the collectorate premises is also a part of this project. The intention is that just like if we go go to Dubai, we click pictures at Burj Khalifa, similarly people who will visit Dehradun will take pictures of this building.
Dr Srivastava added that buildings built on Uttarakhand Architecture will be free to increase their heights by one floor over the permited number of floors. The state government has recently passed a notification in this regard and it will be implemented in the entire state from April this year. The success if any ambitious project depends on political support and Uttarakhand government has fulfilled all our requirements untill now.
MLA and Former Mayor Mr. Vinod Chamoli said that the saying goes that anyone who comes to Dehradun once, never leaves it. This city belongs to everyone who lives here and therefore we will have have to work together to make our city a smart city.
While speaking in the talk jointly organised by the School of Planning & Architecture and Gati Foundation, AGM, Dehradun Smart City Ltd, Surya Kotnala Presented proposed details of the whooping ₹1407.5cr project.
