As a county government our job is to make sure you have the environment that brings out the design work that you’re doing”
“It is our responsibility to make sure that you’re planning well, everything is well coordinated and we will partner with you in that regard as developers, interior designer, architects to make sure that we’re not compromising the input of stakeholders. From the public participation perspective, it is important for us that stakeholders such as yourself bring your voice to bear in the development conversation.”
She said “we are constantly having change of user requests, development requests, approval request but most of the time we don’t hear the voices of the neighborhood associations so I would plead with ourselves to plug in and raise any objections when it’s necessary to raise, partner with us as a department for public participation because that’s where your voice gets heard ,we must all contribute on how Nairobi city evolves, In a way that accommodates everybody and all the stakeholders involved.”
