KOTA KINABALU: The Kota Kinabalu City Hall is always committed to boost the city while developing its own unique identity.
Mayor Noorliza Awang Alip said efforts to enliven and revitalise the city will also continue despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
She said this is to ensure that the city is always prepared to welcome the arrival of tourists to Sabah when the border reopens later.
"Besides that, the city hall also intends to help simplify efforts to further activate economic activities in the city, especially to help attract investment to Kota Kinabalu," she said while delivering a message via the city hall's Facebook page in conjunction with the 21st Anniversary of Kota Kinabalu City Hall yesterday.
The mayor also stated that efforts to increase recycling activities will also be further enhanced.
"The Kota Kinabalu Sustainable Centre, which will be established later, will provide 'repair and upcycle' facilities in selected areas. This centre is a small effort to educate residents to not waste available resources.
"The city's natural environment will also be given continuous attention and in response to the government's recommendation, the city hall will plant at least 2,000 trees this year.
"Meanwhile, the centre will be launched as soon as the situation allows," she said.
In conjunction with the anniversary, various activities were planned and held online earlier, such as the "DBKK Town Hall", Clothing Design Competititon, Online Contemporary Solo Dance Competition, Song Creation Competition, Acoustic Music Competition, and Innovation Talk.
Apart from there, there was also the opening ceremony of the centre and tree planting programme activities.
