YCDC plans to open Yangon City Hall as a public place

Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) is planning to open Yangon City Hall as a public place, said Hlaing Maw Oo, secretary of the YCDC.

The Yangon City Hall is currently occupied by departments; Office of Yangon Mayor and the office of the committee members. However, they are dealing with office procedures for about seven million people and there is not enough space for them at Yangon City Hall. The YCDC has another office in 46th street. The Yangon City Hall is located around Sule Pagoda and it has to be opened for public as similar kinds of place abroad are open to the public as well, she said.

“We have opened an office for one stop services for land and building ownership matters at the ground floor. Development partners proposed holding seminars, ceremonies and meetings at the city hall and Yangon Region Chief Minister and Mayor want to do it,” she said.

Some said traffic congestion in the downtown area are caused by the City Hall where public services are provided. So the authorities planned to move the YCDC office to other locations except for managerial departments, she added.

“We may have to move some of our departments to the place where Archive Department office was planned to build. We have not confirmed that we will transform the (old) Archive Department office, which is now located inside the compound of the air compressor factory into a museum. But it will be opened for public,” she said.

According to a report for budget of 2019-20 FY for Yangon Region by Public Account Committee of the parliament, it is needed to submit the project in details although the budget proposal of Ks7 billion to build the office of the Archive Department located inside the compound of air compressor factory in Botahtaung Township is an ongoing process.

Although MP Thet Htar Nwe Win and MP Yan Shin discussed and asked about the project at the region parliament, Myint Thaung, regional minister for planning and finance didn’t clarify about it.
