BANGALORE: The Garden City has of late been on the receiving end as far as taking care of its parks goes. But this announcement could redeem some of the negative image.
JP Park, one of the largest parks in the city, is to soon become the first park to get international standard infrastructure. The park is to get a swimming pool, fountains, illumination and other modern features. Rajarajeshwarinagar MLA M Srinivas announced this on Friday.
He was speaking after the foundation stone laying ceremony for the housing project for SC/ST beneficiaries at Akyappa Garden in B Ramaiaha colony.
Around 426 houses would be constructed for the beneficiaries under this project by the BBMP and the houses will be ready within March next year, said Srinivas.The approximate cost alloted for the housing project is Rs 1,600 lakh.
The development work in the park would begin by December 5, 2009, he added.
“Various other infrastructure and housing projects have been initiated in this constituency,” he said.
“We have already started work on housing facilities in the constituency at the cost of Rs 22 crore and more than 2,000 houses are to be constructed,” said Srinivas.
“There are about 40 to 45 per cent backward class population and we have suffient funds to provide houses for all these people.
And not just for the SC/ST community, housing facilities will be provided to the other backward classes too. Palike officials and banks are holding talks regarding this,” he said.
Srinivas was all praises for Chief Minister Yeddyurappa. “The Chief Minister has allotted sufficient funds for the development of the constituency,” he added.
