KOTA KINABALU: The city of Kota Kinabalu is expected to be squatter-free by 2015, Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim said on June 15.
He said that to achieve the goal, the Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) was formulating strategies to rid the city of squatters, which included involvement in the housing industry in addition to activities by state government agencies.
"We will proceed with demolition works to achieve our squatter-free goal," he said at the swearing-in of members of the DBKK board of advisors here.
On future plans, Iliyas said several development projects had been identified, including a bus terminal in Kepayan, improving the public transport system and restoring old buildings in the city such as the Natikar building, Sinsuran Complex and Bandaran Berjaya.
"We also plan to construct a new building for the DBKK office," he said.Iliyas said the programmes are aimed at developing Kota Kinabalu as a Nature Resort City on par with other developed cities around the world. -- Bernama
