Your participation matters even more now in making Pune a best-in-class and all-inclusive smart city.
We, the citizens along with Pune Municipal Corporation and the city's various public, private, civic and social entities now have an unprecedented opportunity to collaborate towards smart development of our city. The Smart Cities Mission is a platform to bring us together in order to ensure that Pune makes it to the final cut - that is, the first list of 20 Smart Cities that will be selected by January 31st, 2016. Active contribution by each of us will change the future of Pune.
Your continued participation will help in successful completion of Pune's mission and enable the city to give its best in the challenge. Pune Smart City cannot be built without Punekars. Your vision for sustainable and inclusive development will ensure that we arrive at the best solution.
Over the next two months, we will be asking for your inputs on various issues of importance in three separate phases which will help us identify what kind of smart city do we want Pune to be:
Phase 1 (Envision): We will collectively create the overall vision for Pune based on your inputs. It will also help us identify the major issues people face currently in the city.
Phase 2 (Diagnose): Our identification of development opportunities and issues in each core area will help us identify the most vital issues that need to be resolved in Pune.
Phase 3 (Co-Create): We will aim to address the issues using the solutions we identify.
Ultimately, we will have a detailed understanding of citizens' issues - both pan city and those specific to different area. This will help us to create a plan that is very close to reality, which can be implemented practically.
