Tehran does not have the urban characteristics to live in

According to Eghtesadnews, quoting the Deputy of Communications and International Affairs of the Islamic Council of Tehran, Mohsen Hashemi stated at the Tehran 1400 event: Tehran was a small village and summer town of the ancient city of Rey, which was gradually rejected 250 years ago during the Qajar and Pahlavi eras. کرد. Initially, Tehran had a population of 25,000 people, which in the Pahlavi period experienced an explosive population growth and the population of this city reached 5 million people. However, during the 40 years of the Islamic Revolution, the population of Tehran has doubled, and if we consider the satellite cities that have become part of Tehran today, we must say that the population of Tehran has tripled.

He added: “Tehran has not experienced sustainable and balanced development and now it can be said that Tehran should go in the direction of becoming a place to live, but has not yet acquired the characteristics of a city to live and how Tehran should be a city to live in the 1400s.” , We have to think fundamentally and in this way we have to pay attention to a few points.

The head of the Tehran City Council stated: The use of fossil fuels and suspended particles in Tehran in this style, as well as private transportation, which has caused Tehran to become more and more polluted, and in general, air pollution is the most important issue. It has made Tehran not a place to live, so we must provide Tehran with resilience in this field by creating transportation without pollution.

He continued: “Another issue is resilience in the discussion of earthquakes and floods. Almost everyone is waiting for a terrible earthquake in Tehran, and if we observe the past actions, maybe we have done one percent of the work that should be done, especially in the discussion of back relief.” We are, and therefore, deep work must be done in this field as well, so that we do not witness mass deaths in the event of an earthquake.

Hashemi pointed out: “Apart from Tehran’s resilience in the issue of earthquakes and floods, we should also think about Tehran’s resilience in social harms. Today, we have problems in terms of social harms from all angles; Drug addicts, working children and similar issues have led to cultural and social issues to be made more livable in Tehran in the 1400s.

The head of the Islamic Council of Tehran continued: In the field of urban planning, very big mistakes have occurred in Tehran and all mayors, whose number has reached 50 during the last 100 years, along with their services, have made huge mistakes in this area, which has caused us to have balanced urban planning. If not, then this should also be considered in the 1400s to make Tehran more livable.

Expressing that citizenship rights are another need of Tehran in the future that should be considered, he said: “The specialized commissions of the city council have various and effective programs in these fields and we hope that the municipality of Tehran will submit its plans to the council as soon as possible.” Provide so that with the approval of the council we can reach a city that is suitable for the lives of all citizens.
