In the last general body meeting of Panvel Municipal Corporation (PMC), proposals worth Rs 70 crores were cleared. The five years term of the corporation will end at midnight on July 8. In 2016, the civic body was formed and the current representatives are part of the first corporation.
During the meeting, a proposal for the new building of the Kamothe ward office was cleared. The ward office will come up at sector 11 in the Kamothe mode. Paresh Thakur, leader of House, said that Kamothe is an important node of PMC and the new building has been planned, keeping the rising number of visitors at the ward office in mind.

The sports complex will be ground plus one storey building with a provision of a multipurpose hall, a badminton court and other sports facilities. A similar sports complex spread over 14,000 sq feet will be constructed in Kalamboli.

A proposal regarding this was tabled and cleared without any discussion in the last meeting. “The Traffic park will help youth to learn traffic rules. This will look like a mini-city.
