Garbage clearance
a. Daily clearance of garbage in a proactive manner. There is improvement but a system has to be in place, this will stop the menace of pigs, stray dogs& rodents, reptiles and prevent health problems.
b. Aggressive awareness campaign by BBMP on educating residents through posters, notices and audio visual road shows.
c. Boards at  prominent places instructing  people not to  litter, urinate and  defecate at public places and  vacant sites  
d. Educating school-children in the area on the importance of having a clean and healthy environment who, in turn, will educate their families.

Labor Camps
a. Immediate eviction of camps in a coordinated and complete manner.
b. Heavy fines to be levied on owners and contractors who do not provide temporary accommodation/facilities to laborers during construction

Road Space
a. Unauthorized trucks occupying road space and owners/contractors dumping building material on the roads should be heavily fined
b. Eviction of unauthorized vendors on the road side and pavement
c. Eviction of construction sheds along the footpaths of Main and Cross Roads .These encroachments need to be evicted on an urgent basis in the interest of the community.

Vacant plots and Sanitation:
a. Ensure that both owners as well as BBMP agencies maintain vacant plots. Legislation might be needed for this.
b. Proper maintenance of parks that have been created in the last few months.

Meeting proceedings

Officials from BESCOM, BWSSB and BBMP also attended the function along with residents, with a very frank and fruitful interaction.

It was mentioned that there is a perceivable change for the better on the condition of roads and garbage clearance but a lot more needs to be done with proactive initiative for permanent solutions with coordinated action by civic agencies, BBMP and BDA. Responsibility of garbage management rests on residents too, they need to be aware of this.

The civic officials promised resolution of residents’ grievances relating to garbage management, proper lighting of roads, maintenance of parks and water supply through close working relationship with the residents and association.

The residents requested for early decision on their petition to BBMP and BMTC, on shifting of the bus stand from Parangipalya bus stand in HSR layout  to either the junction of 17th Cross and 19th Main road or the area near the KEB power station ahead of Purvankara  apartments on 24th Main Road where ample space and turning radius (for the buses) are available.

The MLA of the area, Satish Reddy (Bommanahalli) attended the meeting for some time and assured full support towards resolution of the many issues pertaining to infrastructure.

Most of the previous office bearers were once again re-elected during the election.
