Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je disclosed Tuesday that the city government expects to map out a newly-revised blueprint for its urban renewal projects in the wake of Saturday’s earthquake in southern Taiwan.
The draft will be revealed within a month, Ko said during a visit to Taipei’s Xingtian Temple in the morning.
Commenting on the Tainan earthquake, he said the tragic event has more or less affected the way in which city planning proposals will be carried out in future.
“Although earthquake measures have always been taken into consideration as part of the city’s urban planning, a greater determination must be presented to reinforce personal safety awareness in the event of earthquakes.” [FULL STORY]
