Let us come together and create a Smart City Vision to make Bhubaneswar a sustainable, inclusive and livable place. A vision shapes and calls for a preferred future for the city. It has economic, spatial, social and environmental dimensions that reflect a city´s unique physical and cultural character and it provides direction for the activities of the municipality, citizens and other stakeholders.
The city of Bhubaneswar will strive to ensure a clean, safe, sustainable and a green environment where all communities can live in harmony yet preserve their distinct identities - to serve as a melting pot of culture and ethnicity. A city that is proud of its unique wildlife, long-cherished heritage and cutting-edge technology and where all three can find a seamless integration , where its citizens are ensured of a high quality of life by having access to basic and advanced education, aesthetic public infrastructure,world-class healthcare, employment opportunities and a stimulating environment for the pursuit of all forms of science, art and literature.
Lets rebuild Bhubaneswar as a paradise where its citizens are in judicious and harmonious co-habitat with environment, cultural heritage, cleanliness, safety and integral development. A city which provides every individual a shelter, hygienic food, multiple commutation facilities, employment opportunities, advanced infrastructure, hi - tech roads, sufficient scope of sports and entertainments, diversified educational facilities, world class medical facility, multiple tourism platforms and all these are reconciled in a society which is free from crime and corruption.
The Vision Statement should not have more than 50 words and should capture the wider hopes and aspirations of the citizens of Bhubaneswar. It should be inclusive, forward thinking and timeless.
