Visited all malls and 's'malls yesterday. Focuz,RP , emerald (big bazar building) and space mall. Still focuz is leading, but now RP mall looks elegant and almost occupied and reasonable crowd (in numbers), It will attract more footprints than focus once the PVS films open. Emerald should have been marketed well which too have common space and provision for escalators , but now those non uniform shops makes a feeling of another 'Darussalam complex'

Space 's'mall have enough space, but that location is identical for Gold souk or a specialty mall like, for jewels/ornaments/fancies/ladies fashion etc.

Proposal for another airport shot down

KOZHIKODE: Even though the Kozhikode district panchayat modified a resolution brought by a member to urge the state government to initiate steps for a new airport in Kozhikode district, the demand for the same is still alive.The district panchayat member, V D Joseph Valiyamattam has moved a resolution to urge the state government take steps for a new airport in Kozhikode. However, several members opposed this and the resolution was modified to upgrading facilities at the exiting airport at Karipore.The Calicut Chamber of Commerce and Industry also has been demanding a new airport in Kozhikode. It submitted a memorandum in this regard to the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA), E.K.Bharat Bhushan and Airport Authority of India Chairman, V P Agarwal.Sources said that land, which belongs to a private company, for the new airport has already identified, and the state government should take necessary steps for the acquisition of the land. They also said that since the land is a rubber plantation, acquisition of the land won't get affected by the environment laws.

The location of the land should kept secret until complete acquisition is over. Or else by the time land acquisition starts the price would be several lakhs per cent.

Btw seriously is there such a large rubber plantation owned by a private company in Kozhikode district?

There are some rubber estates in Kozhikode dist, owned by Kottyam based publishing companies.

But I doubt these valley estates are geographically suitable for an Airport.

It has the go ahead from the centre. Its the State that needs to acquire this land from the private party. AAI has mentioned they are keen on the project and can provide support if the State Govt gets the land, and prepares a project report. Lets see how it goes.

Kozhikode Development

Hi Guys,

Attention:
jaivin, hsnse, sakrishna, rahul sadu, PPJ, skumarvclt, SLKKMR, calicutjada, sanjupalayat, simpliCITY, kmnarendran, lk777, Ren Calicut, dinakar

I would like to post something that i had posted before, but did not receive attention.

I was wondering if we (members of SSC Kozhikode) all can probably meet and also meet our collector and mayor and may be give our suggestions. For that we need to draft a report with proposals. A few changes here and there can help the traffic in Kozhikode in a long way.

What is your opinion? Shall we all meet and then meet them also? Meanwhile, what we can do is two things-
1. We can create an online poll, collecting random responses from people in Kozhikode as what they think is necessary. May be, i can help you in drafting the online questionnaire and then we can inform as many as possible through our social networking sites, e- mail contacts and then summarize.

2. Based on the proposals, we can meet these people ( Mayor and Collector) and probably also the M. P and M. L. As.

I think we need to push this a little seriously, as Kozhikode is about to make that giant stride into development (with the IT parks and others coming), so, if we don't make a right move now, Kozhikode will definitely suffer.

We are benefiting due the efforts that were made by people who were there before and if they ask sincerely, what is our contribution to Kozhikode, we may not have so much to say. I don't know, if these efforts will really pay off, but let us make a start and let us hope that it will definitely help.

We can have discussions regarding the following:-
1. A new airport in Kozhikode
2. A sustainable transportation system in Kozhikode, with better connectivity along all corridors, such as bypass, city to airport, etc.
3. More facilities at the Kozhikode railway station, such as starting a pit line. It need not be started very close to the main railway station, but can be started somewhere near Kallayi station or towards north of Kozhikode Station.


See, why i am saying it is the right time to go for a major leap in transportation systems is mainly because:-
1. it will definitely boost growth
2. it will become difficult once the area is developed


So, please, let us take some initiatives in this direction.

Vishnu,
It certainly caught my attention and I had replied also that you guys should meet up and d something about this. I am out of the country, so my presence is doubtful. I am visiting Calicut next month though, but for just a week.

Secondly, please include Beypore port development in the list as well. That is the most important project that should take off, which will bring a sea change to the city of Calicut.

Eid Mubarak to all..............
