Bhubaneswar: Smart City Bhubaneswar wins prestigious American Planning Association award; 1st Indian city to do so. Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik congratulate Bhubaneswar – Smart City and its denizens on winning the prestigious Pierre L’Enfant International Planning Excellence Award instituted by American Planning Association.
It is indeed gratifying to see our Capital City making the world sit up and take notice of its citizen centric vision that aims to achieve sustainable economic growth and improve quality of life for all sections. This is for the first time in the history of APA Awards that an Indian city has been recognised for its planning efforts.
It has been our avowed objective and constant endeavor to develop Smart City Bhubaneswar as the best in country and among the best in the world. Global recognition like Pierre L’Enfant International Planning Excellence Award and the honour of being a finalist at the World Smart City Awards 2016 at Barcelona last year only bolster our efforts towards the goal.
“I am proud that Bhubaneswar is not only developing as a world class city but also being acknowledged as a model for other cities around the world,” said CM Naveen Patnaik.
