City Holds Beam-setting Ceremony for Yongle Urban Renewal Project

City Holds Beam-setting Ceremony for Yongle Urban Renewal ProjectThe city government held a beam-setting ceremony at the construction site of the Yongle Urban Renewal Project on November 28.
 
Dignitaries attending the ceremony include Urban Development Commissioner Lin Jou-min, City Councilor Hung Chien-yi, local borough chiefs, Yongchun Urban Renewal Project Self-help Association Leader Liu Te-pin, and a number of community residents.
 
During his address, Commissioner Lin noted that there have been some controversies since the community applied for urban renewal review. To settle the different views among stakeholders, the city government organized over 4 urban renewal negotiation sessions, as well as 2 meetings on urban renewal review and evaluation.
 
Despite the temporary halt on works on July 20, 2017 due to a decision by the Supreme Administrative Court, the city government was able to complete the remaining procedures in compliance with regulations on urban renewal project review in 4 months, allowing constructions to resume on February 13, 2018. 
 
Lin noted that through urban renewal efforts, the city government was able to accelerate the process of urban renewal project review and establish a comprehensive negotiation mechanism to protect the rights of stakeholders. He wished the best for constructions and look forward to the completion of the new complex.
