In his presentation, His Excellency highlighted the primary objective of creating the city, which is to establish a sustainable community accessible to all citizens, rather than being limited to a specific social class or group. This would ensure the concept of a high standard of living for all members of society.
Al-Shuaili also mentioned that Sultan Haitham City is not the only future sustainable city being planned by the government. Several other cities, such as Busher City, Munah City, Sohar City, and Salalah City, are also being considered for development.
Additionally, Al-Shuaili emphasized that Sultan Haitham City aims to accommodate deserving individuals within the government’s system of providing residential lands. The city will also facilitate land exchanges for citizens who were previously granted lands. Furthermore, it will promote investment, real estate development, and foreign ownership. Approximately 5% of the city’s area will be allocated to housing assistance programs for citizens in need.
Furthermore, His Excellency highlighted that the city will have an efficient transportation system, including railways, bicycles, buses, cars, and pedestrian pathways. These measures will address traffic congestion issues and enhance mobility within the city.
