The Capital City District (Urban) Future Land Use Plan shows the entire extent of the Capital City, at a size which will accommodate a population of one million, both to the west and east of Hombolo Ridge.
All the land designated for urban purposes should be reserved for the proposed Capital City. To this end, no development should be permitted which does not conform to the policies established in this chapter. However, substantial parts of the urban land may not be actually developed for many years to come (land designated as Urban Expansion Reserve on the Future Land Use Plan, 350,000 population).
As an interim use, those lands which are not intended for immediate urbanization should be used for a variety of agricultural uses, grazing, reforestation and erosion control measures. However, houses and other structures should not be permitted, except for utilities and services related to the urbanization process. In addition, the Kikombo growth centre, at the eastern extremity of the urban land in the Ihumwa area may be expanded in accordance with the policies outlined under Villages and Growth Centres earlier in this chapter.
