  Home >> LACG >> Letter for forming an LACG


From,                                                                                                   Date: _______________






Dear Sir/Madam,  

Subject: Forming a Local Area Citizen Group (LACG)  

The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (BMC - Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) has notified the “Charter for the MCGM-Local Area Citizen Group Partnership 2006” with effect from 1st April 2006. The Charter invites citizen groups to become formal partners of the MCGM through a sustainable & institutional mechanism involving various activities concerning civic issues.  

A Local Area Citizen Group (LACG) is defined as a group of owners or occupiers of residential, commercial and/or institutional premises of a defined geographical area, who have come together and are recognized as formal partners of the MCGM to enable better delivery of civic services and provision of civic infrastructure in that area.  

Activities that an LACG can take up range from survey, planning & implementation, awareness creation, monitoring, joint working with MCGM, communication to and from citizens, etc. This would not however absolve MCGM from fulfilling its duties.  

Further details regarding this concept can be found at the website: Please also find enclosed the Summary of the Charter, for your quick reference.  

To ensure that our area benefits from the above concept, it is appropriate that we take up this responsibility and form our own LACG to address the various civic issues concerning our locality.  

I am a resident of the area and hence would like to take the initiative of forming an LACG that would cover the area under Ward ___, Councillor Ward ___ and LACG Area __. This has been highlighted in the enclosed area map.  

I would be grateful if you could send me your Letter of Support for the same, in the format enclosed, at the earliest possible.  

If you wish to be actively involved in the functioning of this LACG, please do let me know.  

Looking forward to your response,
