VISAKHAPATNAM: As the city has been prioritised for development under the Smart Cities concept by the Union government,  all the heads of the departments of the GVMC should actively involve themselves and guide the consultants to bring out a fruitful vision document as per the requirements of the consultants, said MV Satyanarayana, commissioner of the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation.

The preparation of the vision document, by consultant aXYKno of Nagpur, is at an advanced stage.

At a special review meeting on the document Tuesday, the commissioner requested the consultants to prepare the document duly taking into consideration the recently finalised City Development Plan (CDP). The commissioner wanted the document to be prepared taking into account the available land use pattern in the city in the short and long-term developments.

The short-term vision plan should be for five years for the core areas of the city extending to around 200 considering the important immediate developmental projects in education, health and sanitation, traffic and transportation. This is against the backdrop of the division of the state.

The long-term perspective would be for 10 years aiming at the extended area of 630 for developmental projects in housing, environment, industry and tourism sectors, the proposed PCPIR and Vizag-Kakinada transit corridor, the commissioner told the consultants.
