The Mayors of the two cities met to promote culture, education, and economic development.
What’s it about? A delegation led by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg visited Chennai and met with officials about several initiatives. In a meeting with Chennai Mayor R. Priya, the two agreed to promote education, economic development, and culture.
- They discussed some of the projects implemented in Chennai, like modernising solid waste management. Officials from the previous DMK government travelled to San Antonio before implementing the Cooum Eco Restoration project.
- The current DMK government has revived the elevated corridor along the Cooum. After this, many eco-restoration projects will happen at the Cooum river based on ones in San Antonio and Singapore.
Previous projects: Apart from the elevated corridor, the Corporation prepared a detailed project report on a nature trail near College Road along the Cooum. The project was cancelled due to the elevated corridor connecting Chennai Port and Maduravoyal.
