The Lagos State Government says it is opening up the revised Alimosho Model City Plan for public review and comment.

The Deputy Director of Public Affairs, Mukaila Sanusi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Lagos.

To this effect, he said that the government would be seeking input from residents in Alimosho and the general public in finalising the revised Alimosho Model City Plan.

According to him, the document will be presented to the public from February 19 to March 27.

He said the revised Alimosho Model City Plan would be made accessible in various locations throughout the community for four weeks.

Mr Sanusi quoted the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Dr Oluyinka Olumide, as saying that the planning document would allow for robust participation and ownership.

“For the four-week duration, members of the public can access the document and make comments at the following centres between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

“The planned document will be available at nine locations: Alimosho Local Government Secretariat, Alimosho, Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA Secretariat, Abule-Egba, Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA Secretariat, Ipaja, Egbe-Idimu LCDA Secretariat, Isheri, Mosan-Okunola LCDA Secretariat, Ipaja.

Mr Sanusi also said that there would be a dedicated stakeholder engagement meeting after the public review period, to discuss the plan in more detail and address specific concerns from different groups within the community.

He said the engagement would be held on April 4 at the Noble Castle Event Centre, Igando.
