What makes great city planning?

We believe that core considerations should revolve around accessibility, inclusivity, and sustainability.

Moving around should be relatively easy with an efficient transportation system.

City and infrastructure designs should incorporate the needs of marginalized groups such as Persons-with-Disabilities (PwD) and aging communities.

Green spaces, eco-friendly practices and technologies should be integrated into developmental planning.

Therefore, KotaKita Sabah has been established to be an the agent of change that focuses on advocating city-regional planning, for the people, by the people.
