Jana Urban Space prepared and submitted the masterplan for Sawai Madhopur -2035 in 2015, and it was subsequently notified in 2017. Three plan projects were identified as part of the masterplan to transform the quality of life for its citizens and convert it to a “pull city” from a “push city”. Project WILD – the restoration and rejuvenation of 12 KM of Lutiya Nallah as an important water body, green mobility corridor and public space was one of the plan projects. Six government owned sites were identified along the nallah to create public spaces of great value, including a sports arena, public parks, markets and a convention centre. All of them are connected via the continuous green mobility corridor along the nallah and are connected to the rest of the city via roads.
An event ground was proposed in the area between Man Town and Old Town to catalyse new growth and generate jobs. It was envisioned as a waterfront space that could be used for melas, fairs, concerts etc as well as an everyday public space, along the edge of the nallah. The city’s annual Dussehra Mela is currently held in this area, and would continue to be held in a grander scale at the event ground.
The event ground was also sited adjacent to the market by the nallah to accommodate spill over activities and vending.
