Hawassa City Deputy Mayor and Head of the Urban Development and Construction Department, Melkias Batre, said the land supply and administration system in Hawassa is better and is being managed properly.
Hawassa Deputy Mayor and Head of the Urban Development and Construction Department, Melkias Battre, told Addis Zemen. The city administration is managing the limited and common land.
He said the city administration is preparing the land in various ways and providing the required services in accordance with the broad demand.
He said the cadastre started in the cities is due to the existence of a healthy land administration in the city. He said the registration of urban land and land-related assets with technology is very important and should be strengthened.
He said the cadastre, which was launched in urban areas to modernize land management, has been implemented in five sub-cities of Hawassa.
He recalled that work had slowed down due to security concerns in the area. He added that cadastre work is underway with the addition of two more sub-cities.
The cadastre’s job is to verify the information coming from the main landowner, the city’s land management and land development, and the information provided by the so-called landlord. They said.
He said the overall land administration system can be run in an orderly manner. He said the technology will enable you to know and use the land in the city and provide accurate information on how much revenue the city should earn.
According to Deputy Mayor, Melkias said the land will be transferred in two ways. He said the land will be transferred to investors in various sectors who can make a significant contribution to the city by creating job opportunities.
He said land will be auctioned twice a year in the city. This, he said, is an indication of how desirable and living the city is.
He said in addition to the two roads, land will be provided to investors.
He said land will be prepared for urban agriculture, manufacturing, industry and cost-effective condominiums to be built by the city administration. He said the city administration has prepared and transferred more land than planned in the past nine months.
He said the land supply and administration in Hawassa city are better. He said there are more than 40,000 pieces of land in the city. He said about 8,000 lands have been included in the cadastre system so far. He said the city administration has a lot of work to do and is working on it.
He said the Hawassa City Administration is working hard to make the city one of the most populous cities in East Africa, especially to protect and preserve Hawassa Lake, which is a major asset of the city.
