Corporation officials said people could vote by logging on to mygov.in or www.chennaicorporation.gov.in or obtain the polling paper from the 15 zonal offices.
Officials said proposals, including parking management, transit-oriented development, bus rapid transit system, multi-modal integration, LED street lighting, waste reduction and recycling, and intelligent traffic management, were shortlisted for the pan city component.
“We will finalise one neighbourhood from the four shortlisted areas based on voting from residents across the city” said a senior corporation official.
Till the time of filing of this report, T Nagar received the maximum votes followed by George Town. Most residents voted for non-motorized transport (disabled-friendly footpath, cycle track, etc.), multi-modal integration, waste reduction and recycling, intelligent LED street lighting, and transit oriented development.
To make it to the first list of 20 cities, which is to be released by the central government next year, a city has to formulate a ‘smart city challenge mission proposal’. If selected, each smart city can carry out development work worth 1,000 crore over five years.
