Residents of Sectors 28, 29 Vashi and Sector 12 Koper Khairane are demanding a community centre where they can organize functions and events in their neighbourhood.
Sunanda Raut, local corporator, agrees that a community centre is badly needed in the area. “It is impossible for residents to organize any public programme or gathering for events like birthday party or a local competition for the development of community”.
Raut adds, “I have asked NMMC to build a community centre that will not only have space for organizing events, but also space for indoor games, a library or a study centre. I have put the demand before general body. I hope that it will receive assent at the earliest. If everything goes smoothly, the sector will have a community centre before the end of financial year”.
