Gwangju City Autonomous Districts Continue Disputes Over Boundary Adjustment Plan

 

5 districts of Gwangju are having disputes over boundary adjustment.

Yeongju Ahn will tell us more.

 

Gwangju city autonomous districts continued their disputes over the next districts boundary adjustment plan. Some residents living in Buk-gu and Gwangsan-gu areas that are expected to be incorporated into other districts have expressed strong oppositions, while the Dong-gu district office stressed the need for boundary adjustment.

 

Amid the heated controversy over the plan, Dong-gu district is the most willing district that supports the change of boundaries among autonomous districts as Dong-gu has seen a dramatic population decrease in the recent years. A Dong-gu district official said only 8% of Gwangju’s population resides in the district, and for the balanced development of the city, boundary adjustment is inevitable.

 

On the other hand, there’s a strong backlash against the plan from residents in Buk-gu and Gwangsan-gu area. The Buk-gu and Gwangsan-gu offices announced that they will follow the willingness of the residents, however, some Buk-gu residents put up banners expressing their opposition to the plan, while some Gwangsan-gu resident autonomous organizations announced their position and stated objection to the plan.

 

Regarding this, a city official said each district is considering the advantages and disadvantages of this plan, and there hasn’t been a proper opinion collecting procedure yet, and added that even though the city would reports the final plan to the Ministry of the Interior and Safety, it will most likely hold a residential vote on whether or not the district boundaries should be adjusted to prevent possible zoning conflicts.
