Mayor launches documents to chart city’s future

Nor Hisham says the two plans anticipate what Kuala Lumpur should aim for in 20 years.

The Kuala Lumpur Smart City Master Plan 2021-2025 will detail initiatives to address population growth in the capital city.

“There is a growing trend globally where more people are moving to big cities.

“It is crucial for us to anticipate what Kuala Lumpur would look like in 20 years and plan accordingly to ensure the developments are sustainable, ” said mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan after launching the master plan and Kuala Lumpur Climate Action Plan 2050 at Menara DBKL 1 in Jalan Raja Laut.

He added that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) would work closely with ministries, government agencies, non-governmental agencies and professional bodies in implementing the master plan.

Nor Hisham also spoke on DBKL’s plan to build more council homes for newlyweds and young people from the B40 group.

“Proper facilities such as recreational areas would be provided to ensure their quality of life, ” he said, adding that a council home project was being planned in Taman Danau Desa.

The climate action plan, Nor Hisham noted, would address

the increase in the emission of greenhouse gases in the city, and was in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

“Lately, we often have to face problems such as flash floods, landslides and storms due to climate change, ” he said, adding that the plan would complement the Kuala Lumpur Low Carbon Society Blueprint 2030.

The two documents would be made available to the public next year.
