SymbioCity Kenya is looking for experienced international and Kenyan landscape architects to design a layout of an integrated mixed-used market in Ontulili, Meru County!
The rehabilitation of the four hectare idle space in Butere town will create a park with multiple purposes, from providing space for leisure, to facilitating recycling and reducing crime. However stalled implementation is causing frustration.
Refurbishment works have just begun and the market is springing back to life. New businesses are being opened and existing ones expanded. A few traders shared their aspirations with SCK Communications.
A technical working group is preparing the installation of double story and stand-alone metal containers, cold storage facilities, and a mini bio-digester.
Over 3000 residents of Jewathu, a low income settlement in Nakuru County who suffer from recurrent flooding and waterborne diseases are hopeful of a reprieve.
The upgrade of Ontulili Market enjoys great support of the Meru County government and the community, and is the benchmark against which the County’s gateway and strategic junction towns will be developed.
