Residents are to be resettled before construction begins on Shilin District’s (士林) Shezidao (社子島) peninsula in Taipei, the city’s Department of Land Administration said yesterday.

About a dozen people gathered by the Organization of Urban Re-s (OURs) — an association dedicated to reformation for fair and reasonable usage of urban space — yesterday morning held a banner outside Taipei City Hall that read “Shezidao wants development, not zonal expropriation of the whole area.”

The city government in February last year used its “i-Voting” online polling platform to allow Shezidao residents to decide the direction of the peninsula’s development, OURs said.

Although the “Ecological Shezidao” plan gained the most votes, only 35.16 percent of eligible voters took part in the poll, the group said.    [FULL  STORY]
