Mohammed Hassan Al Ali, Head of Projects Design Section at the General Projects Department of the municipality, said the projects would be presented in a meeting of contractors, consultants and representatives of several departments at the municipality to be held at the Zabeel Park restaurant from 9.30am.

"This meeting comes as part of our mission to establish a high level communication channel with stakeholders. We seek to emphasise on the knowledge transmission process through introducing the Landscape Unit's mission and strategy in serving the community," said Hassan Al Ali.

He noted that the Unit's approach in landscape design is based on integration in the distribution of recreational facilities to serve all members of the community.

"There are certain standards for setting up public parks in line with short and long term requirements and based on budget and planning priorities," said the official.

Al Ali said the meeting would introduce new landscape projects including parks, playgrounds, and community facilities as well as landscape work in general projects, and will also discuss facilities offered to contractors by the municipality.
