Abu Dhabi — The residents of Al Falah in Abu Dhabi have called for building a health centre in the city and increasing the number of police patrols. They also stressed the need to pay more attention to maintenance of houses.

These suggestions came during the 18th Multaqa Forum the Abu Dhabi City Municipality held with the residents of Al Falah city.

The forum aimed to identify the residents’ needs and served as a platform for them to give feedback on the municipal services that are offered.

“Thanks to the support of our strategic partners, the municipality is seeking to make these forums a genuine platform for sharing concepts, suggestions, identifying the needs of citizens and responding to their queries ... The municipality has confidence in the views and ideas expressed by citizens and their role in supporting ... the path of the municipality’s plans,” said Al Mazroui.
