New Year doesn’t assure any novelty or changes around you but it definitely comes with new hope and lots of expectations. Now that we bid adios to the year 2018 and welcome the year 2019, there are a lot of changes and developments that we as a citizen of Udaipur would like to see in the city. Below is the list of those 12 resolutions that authority needs to take in Udaipur this New Year which will lead to a better future for the citizens in Udaipur.
Better Road conditions
This has been an all-time problem for the Udaipurites, no matter what the season is. Uneven roads, potholes, and dry dust covering your face while you drive leads to frequent accidents. Not just that, but it also results in long traffic jams creating an improper traffic structure in the city. Which leads us to our next point.
Organized traffic structure
It seems like there is a season of following the traffic rules. During some part of the year, wearing a helmet would be necessary or you would be fined and during some part, even the traffic lights won’t work properly. It creates an irregularity in the traffic structure of the city which ultimately makes a citizen think it is okay if he breaks the rule.
Lake conservation and cleaning
If you observe carefully, our city is unimaginably beautiful. Not just in pictures but also in reality. All it needs is proper attention, maintenance, and regular cleaning. Just cleaning the lakes would immensely add up to the above statement. Lakes such as Lake Pichola, Lake Fatehsagar, Lake Doodhtalai, etc. all have the same story. If our Lakes itself isn’t clean, then there’s no point of dreaming the city to be like Venice.
Taking care of the tourist attraction points
Tourism is one of the major income generating sources for the city. Thus it is very important to maintain them and add to their beauty. The tourist attraction points don’t just end up on prominent places but also the heritage and cultural festivals which boost up the tourism rate in the city. Maintaining the beauty of the places and adding up more festivals and programs such as Lake Festival and Shilpgram festival would definitely attract more tourists in the upcoming year.
An ideal clean city – Udaipur
To discuss this point, I would want to take an example of the city of Indore which is being considered as the cleanest city in the country. The municipal corporation in Indore has adopted some smart ways that have changed the way garbage was hitherto disposed in the city. These methods included door-to-door garbage collection and night cleaning which were very effective in reducing littering on the road.
The news of a flyover being constructed in the city has been in air from quite a long time now. Still, it is very difficult to say when it will be constructed. The list of resolution for the year 2019 should definitely be added with the point.
Implementation of No vehicle zone
Currently, there is only one ‘No vehicle zone’ in the city which is at Fatehsagar paal. It really made a great leisure spot for all the citizens without any traffic hassle. More such ‘No vehicle zones’ should be added especially where there are narrow roads and more traffic such as ‘Old City’ area, etc.
Promoting Nightlife in the city
Nightlife is a major void when it comes to the city of Udaipur. After 10:00 pm, the entire city gets closed down resulting in zero nightlife. To promote the same, strict security system should be implemented along with festivals and programs to promote nightlife in the city.
Preserving the Heritage of Udaipur
While we are in Udaipur, one thing is for sure that we would be completely surrounded by Heritage sites. But it is aptly said that with great power comes great responsibility. And so it is necessary that proper attention and care is given to the heritage sites of the city which is quite lacking in the city. For example, Gangaur Ghat and even the Ambrai Ghat, both of which offers a breathtaking view of the city, is all messed up. People come here to wash their clothes or to bathe. Some measures should be taken against issues like such.
Smart City – Public Wifi Zone
It shouldn’t be just in the name but also in the actions. Smart city Udaipur should be equipped with smart actions and facilities that can help the citizens. And one of such smart move can be creating wifi zones in the public areas.
Development in the outskirts of the city
It looks like, amidst the attention given to the tourist spots and the city area, the outskirt area of the city is often being forgotten. No development can be seen in those areas as such and the maintenance as well is not taken care of. The major examples of these areas are Rampura Chouraha, Pratapnagar, etc.
Animal security and control
Cows sitting on the roads, stray dogs disturbing the chores of people, pigs, and horses finding a place to live, these issues in the city create an imbalance between animals and people. These animals should be assigned a proper place to live where they are not injured by the fast-moving vehicles on the road and rather be taken care of with food and a healthy living environment.
With the above 12 resolutions for the authority, we hope this New Year shall be happy for the city as well as you.
