News & Notes 648:Call for Interim Members for l'Avenir d'Auroville – Town Development Council
As you are aware, we are putting together an intensive process to address key issues around town planning and development to result in a restructured town planning office for Auroville. This process is expected to take 5- 6 months.
The existing l'Avenir d'Auroville – Town Development Council is now reduced to a few members out of which 1 person will be absent during summer, 1 person is ill and only 2 persons are involved in the day-to-day activities. But until we have a new restructured planning office in place, the TDC has to take decisions to spend from the allocated grants to be received from the Government of India, give building permissions, do planning, interact with people in the bio region etc.
The Working Committee and Auroville Council have therefore decided to strengthen the existing TDC with an additional 5-7 interim members.
Interim members will be a mix of part time and full time, representing skills of administration, organisation, management, communication, finance, architecture/ planning and bioregional work.
New or any present member should not have any conflict of interest in the decisions to be taken by l'Avenir d'Auroville – TDC.
The Auroville Council invites all Aurovilians to propose 7 names maximum.
The deadline for nomination is May 18th, 2016.
The interim members will be chosen by the Auroville Council and the Working Committee through consensus from the list of names received from the community.
Please send your nominations to avcoffice (at) auroville.org.in with a short description of the reasoning for your choices.
Thanks for your participation,
The AVCouncil and the Working Committee
