Iran News - - DOMESTIC - News Group; Be­hzad Ab­basi:

Dr. Hamid Lot­fol­lahian was se­lected as the sec­ond best Ira­nian mayor in terms of pub­lic sport de­vel­op­ment in the pres­ence of the head of the Ira­nian Pub­lic Sport Fed­er­a­tion.At one of the meet­ings of the High Coun­cil of Sports held in the pres­ence of pro­vin­cial and sport of­fi­cials, the of­fi­cials talked one by one about sport de­vel­op­ment with re­gard to pro­vin­cial ca­pac­i­ties and the im­por­tance of sports as a ba­sic strat­egy for re­duc­ing so­cial prob­lems.

Spe­cial walk­ing paths are de­signed in Ard­abil

The mayor of Ard­abil said in the meet­ing: “One of our key pri­or­i­ties has been the de­vel­op­ment of pub­lic sports in the prov­ince by pro­vid­ing the re­quired in­fra­struc­ture for walk­ing in the city with the aim of pro­mot­ing pub­lic health in this area”. Hamid Lot­fol­lahian as­serted: “We have to con­sider pro­mot­ing sports pro­grams in all projects, be­cause ev­ery ac­tiv­ity and plan re­quires sports pro­grams in or­der for us to in­sti­tu­tion­al­ize vi­tal­ity and dy­namism in the com­mu­nity and en­sure the gen­eral health of the cit­i­zens in the re­gion”.The mayor of Ard­abil said: “Pro­mot­ing the gen­eral health of cit­i­zens is a pub­lic duty, and con­struc­tive de­vel­op­ment is not the only mis­sion of the big sport and cul­tural or­ga­ni­za­tion of mu­nic­i­pal­ity”.He noted that the suc­cess of sports and youth ac­tiv­i­ties re­quires the in­creased close co­op­er­a­tion of all ex­ec­u­tive agen­cies and added: “If ac­tive man­agers in mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties fo­cus their con­cen­tra­tion solely on con­struc­tive de­vel­op­ment, they will ne­glect other cul­tural and so­cial du­ties of mu­nic­i­pal­ity, and this com­plex is more than merely a ser­vice in­sti­tu­tion; rather th­ese cen­ters are to be con­sid­ered cul­tural and so­cial or­ga­ni­za­tions as well”.The mayor of Ard­abil stated: “Me­gapro­jects may be ca­pa­ble of re­solv­ing a city’s de­vel­op­men­tal prob­lems, but they will cer­tainly not elim­i­nate so­cial and cul­tural prob­lems, and hence co­op­er­a­tion with each cul­tural and so­cial in­sti­tu­tion and com­plex will be em­pha­sized”. Lot­fol­lahian added: “The cre­ation of the long­est health road around Shora­bil Lake in 2016 led to a very pos­i­tive feed­back about peo­ple’s in­ter­est in us­ing it, and the Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Ard­abil will pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of other walk­ing plans in the city.Not­ing that sport and walk­ing in Ard­abil are among the pri­or­i­ties of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of this city, he said: “The mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s per­for­mance is not lim­ited to improve­ment in car traf­fic flow and at­ten­tion to ur­ban trans­port; rather, the city should be pro­vided with the ca­pa­bil­i­ties re­quired for walk­ing and ev­ery­one should be en­cour­aged to do ex­er­cise.

Cre­ation of so­cial vi­tal­ity is an im­por­tant achieve­ment for so­ci­ety

The Po­lit­i­cal, Se­cu­rity and So­cial Deputy of the gover­nor Gen­eral of Ard­abil also said at the meet­ing: “Only 21% of the peo­ple par­tic­i­pate in pub­lic sports de­spite the plans hav­ing been made for the de­vel­op­ment of pub­lic sports, and pub­lic sports should re­ceive par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion for the de­vel­op­ment of sports in the com­mu­nity”.

Ali Navadad added: “The so­cial vi­tal­ity of the com­mu­nity is con­sid­ered an im­por­tant achieve­ment in the sports com­mu­nity of the prov­ince, which can be achieved by fo­cus­ing on the de­vel­op­ment of cham­pion and pub­lic games. We should now en­deavor to take mea­sures so that 50% of the peo­ple would par­tic­i­pate in pub­lic sports”.

He said: “Pro­mo­tion of the com­mu­nity’s health is one re­sult of the de­vel­op­ment of pub­lic sports in the com­mu­nity, which can be achieved when all agen­cies do their tasks in this re­gard so that pub­lic sports can at­tain a good and ac­cept­able po­si­tion, which is very im­por­tant to us.
