City Development Plan for Mysore

PREFACE TO THE CITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF MYSORE
This City Development Plan (CDP) document has been prepared by Mysore City in the context of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). The document has been prepared through a systematic consultation process with citizen groups, elected representatives, and Government departments/ agencies. Infrastructure Development Corporation (Karnataka) Ltd. (iDeCK) 1, which is an organization empanelled for the purposes of the JNNURM by the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India, has assisted Mysore City in developing this CDP. This CDP seeks to set in place the directions and principles, rather than aim at being a definitive and conclusive document. Primary emphasis is on principles, directions and reform, rather than on specific projects that the City needs to develop. Given the complex and consensual nature of the exercise, it is clear that while such a consultative process gives room for all the views to be articulated, it is certainly not possible to adopt every view point. The final vision will therefore reflect a preponderance of opinion, rather than be a unanimous view. A two-phased approach has been adopted to chart the direction of the City’s development. A consultative, normative approach to envision the future, complemented by a bottom-up approach of specific project interventions in the City. It is also clear that the Vision articulated in this document will continue to evolve, even subsequently, with learning and feedback from various stakeholders. Mysore City recognizes this need for ongoing fine-tuning of the CDP, and proposes to incorporate any essential and crucial issues into a revision that will be brought out in periodic reviews.
