The residents of Sector 21 on Sunday started the concept of lane meetings to discuss problems of a particular group of houses with the area councillor.
Several issues affecting the residents were discussed in the lane meeting.
The residents took up the issue of the construction of the Metro station in Sector 21 for which the acquisition of residential land has been proposed. It was felt that the park in the area needs to be developed as it is in shambles. At present, residents are not able to sit in the park.
The residents demanded that the proposal for a community parking lot should be mooted as the number of vehicles had been witnessing a steady increase.
The menace of stray dogs was another problem that was highlighted. The residents said they were scared of venturing out and had given up their morning walks, fearing the dogs.
A stainless steel bus shelter and repair of the gates in the back lanes were the other demands raised.
Sachin Sharma, an area resident, said that keeping in view the sentiments of residents, the details of neighbourhood parks which are dedicated to the residents by the corporation must be put on its website and how people can book these parks should also be explained.
Councillor Mukesh Bassi assured that no land would be acquired in the residential area for construction of the Metro station. He also said that widening of V-5 has been started and carpeting of V-6 roads will be started in a week.
He also said that in the area near V-7, the beautification of roads will be done in collaboration with some private forum. He added that he will ask the Administration for a stainless steel bus shelter in the sector.
