ISLAMABAD Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to take the representatives of all the sectors, sub-sectors and markets of the city on board to form a consultative forum for execution of future developmental projects. CDA Chairman Imtiaz Inayat Elahi announced this while addressing the residents of Islamabad at Convention Centre on Wednesday. He said that the authority wanted to institutionalise the old system of Sector Citizens Committees in a bid to seek citizens suggestions for the development of the Capital and to ensure better facilities to them. The constitution of citizens committees would be announced in a couple of weeks, he added. The CDA chairman said that the projects executed with consultation of the quarters concerned were more beneficial and productive than those envisaged by bureaucracy in their offices. He said that people representing different sectors, would be involved in the affairs of the civic agency so as to develop the Capital in line with the aspirations of the people. He said that the Capital had been facing several major and minor civic issues including environmental degradation, wastage of water, encroachments, poor maintenance of road infrastructure and unhygienic conditions. He further said that market coordinators had already been deputed in different marakiz (centres) and the system would be extended to the markets so as to get latest input of the traders and common citizens for betterment of the markets and resolving the day-to-day affairs at the earliest. The Chief of the CDA said that as Islamabad was going to complete 50 years of its establishment in 2010, every resident of the city should come forward and play an active role in the Golden Jubilee Celebrations to make them a success. He said that CDA had changed its priority from the mega-projects to the revision of the basic amenities to the residents as per the chartered duties of the civic and development agency. He said that more funds would be allocated to improve the neglected sectors.
