Arusha 2035 Masterplan
09/09/2017 City Plan
Dear Friends of Arusha,
For the Master Plan of Arusha City, the chosen Planning Area boundary consists of the entire Arusha City Council, parts of Arusha District Council and Meru District Council. The gazetted Planning Area boundary takes into account the current development trend in the city and a conscious decision to limit urban sprawl and safeguard the unique biodiversity footprint surrounding the area.
The boundary for the Master Plan stretches from Kisongo and Ngaramtoni in the west upto Tuvaila (Maji ya Chai ward) in the east. Towards the southern boundary it extends until Terrat.
Due to the presence of steep topography, rivers and the active volcano in Mt. Meru, developments are restricted to about 2-3 km beyond the east west corridor (Moshi-Nairobi road). As per the existing administrative boundaries, the following wards form part of the Planning Area:- The entire Arusha City comprising of 19 wards.
– 10 wards from Arusha District Council – This includes the wards of Kiranyi, Moivo, Ngaramtoni, Ngaramtoni 1, Kimnyaki, Olorieni and Mlangarini; and the villages of Oldadai, Sokon and Sekei from Sokon II ward, Sasi from Bangata and Ngorbob in Mateves ward.
