  1. Include permanent seats / participation for interest groups in urban planning & EXECUTION. In many instances, decisions were made and actions carried out unilaterally.

    It is high time we reclaim public passageways like pedestrian pavements, 5 foot ways, alleys, and road reserves from unauthorized intrusions which endanger public health, ie exposure to vehicular traffic, physical hazards like tripping and hot stoves, unhygienic food preparation and breeding of pests.
    Include participation by reps from political divides to agree and pre-empt politicizing decisions and actions.
