AIM will focus on reducing environmental impact by integrating renewable energy sources, smart grids and energy efficient infrastructure to minimize carbon emissions and energy consumption. AIM will also integrate smart transportation systems reducing traffic congestion and accidents, while increasing public safety and promoting alternative modes of transportation such as public transportation, cycling, scooters and walking.
AIM’s intent is to improve the quality of life for the residents while promoting social inclusivity by providing equitable access to public services, transportation, and digital connectivity ensuring the voices of diverse communities regarding needs and preferences are heard.
