Residents of Shezi, a 290-hectare sandbar at the confluence of the Keelung River and Tamsui River in Taipei, will decide the community’s future course of development in a vote between February 27 to 28, with voters able to cast ballots or vote online, reports said Sunday.
Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je disclosed in the morning that since it will be the first plebiscite held in the city, he is calling on to its residents to take an active approach to the upcoming ballot, dubbed “I-voting.”
“The development plans and discussions will be put out in the open for public review,” Ko said, cautioning those involved in the project not to dwell on striking it rich but to think about the long-term benefits for residents in Shezi. [FULL STORY]
