The Lagos State Government has signed three model city plans to guide
physical development of different areas of the metropolis in the next 10
years. This is in line with its determination to ensure a better, safe and
economically viable human settlement in the state.
The model city development plans are to be focused on Ikoyi/Victoria
Island, Agege/Ifako-Ijaiye and Apapa areas of the state.
Toyin Ayinde, the immediate past Commissioner for Physical Planning
and Urban Development, speaking during the presentation of the plans
after their official signing, said that they were approved by the State
Executive Council under Governor Babatunde Fashola and that the model
city plans had earlier been signed for implementation.
