Corporation of Chennai is preparing a proposal towards Smart City Challenge which would include city wide smart urban solutions as well as identification of areas within the city for its implementation.

The proposal would be defined primarily based on voice of Chennai residents. An extensive citizen engagement programme is established by Corporation of Chennai to document the views and concernsfor the same.

Residents may post their opinion and ideas on civic services such as transport, parking, water supply, sanitation, energy, housing, IT solutions,health, education, safety and security. Your views, opinion and solutions on urban issues faced by Chennai would not only support a better tomorrow for Chennaites, it will also make Chennai a strong contender for getting shortlisted as one of the first 20 cities in India to implement Smart City Solutions in Phase 1.

Chennai citizen and community is its biggest strength. Let’s participate to make this proposal inclusive and meaningful for every common man, every citizen.

The last date to submit your comments is 15th November, 2015.

Ideal location should accomadate futuristic tech to upgrade and have long term expansion goal, which should be outskirt of city. If it is inside should reduce & address existing painful problem. So either T.Nagar as per CoC choice or MM Nagar as per natural choice

Sholinganallur is the preferred area for smart city project as this is close to IT corridor,colleges and schools. Being in development phase compared with other localities, there is huge opportunity to implement all aspects of smart city in a planned way.
