Dubai Municipality will undertake AED1.5 billion worth civic projects with a major focus on reshaping and restructuring the heart of the city and providing basic services to the newly-developed parts of the emirate.
The civic body is aiming to have zero visits by its customers to its offices by providing all civic services online by 2007. It has already made 90 per cent of its services online as part of the Dubai eGovernment initiative. These projects include beautification and landscape schemes, development of open spaces, and redevelopment of old areas.
New projects planned by Dubai Municipality include 29 public parks and 45 community parks which would add another 670 hectares of green area to Dubai’s urban landscape and the new Dubai Zoo whose location will be decided next month.
