Strategic Plan for Beitulla
The idea of plstratgic planning is how to convert disadvantage and threatens into advantage and opportunities, the following is a brief abstract of Beit Ulla strategic plan.
Status, Obstacles, and Development goals
Status: Beit Ulla is a town located about 10km northwest of Hebron city, the population is estimated to be 14000 residence. We depend heavily on agriculture, then industry and Israeli labor market for our productive resources . We have many future opportunities with the promotion of archeological sites and tourism.
Obstacles: we face many obstacles in reaching our potential as a community. The town suffers from a lack of good medical services and hospital; absence of sewage system; lack of a cultural and sports center for the youth; and supporting finances to accomplish the goals and desires of the community.
There is the existence of one medical clinic, which was built for emergencies only. At present it is not meeting the needs of the community . it is imperative for us to build a comprehensive medical center immediately.
Water, the source of life is an urgent and major need for Beit Ulla, we have a scarcity of water during the summer threatening the agricultural growth and well-being of the community, Pipelines and wells are needed to establish a reserve system.
Agriculture: is the basis for overall development, our plan was to renew/ rehabilitate 5000dunums of land for planting; establishing 300 wells to gather rain water with an estimated capacity of 100m3/each. We want to build 20km of agricultural roads to access the farmland. Finally in the green area we want to establish the land for livestock and rebuild the green houses .
Industry : an establishment of a precisely defined industrial zoon, to be located near the green area for future agro-industrial development.
Another goal is to rebuild the northern and southern main roads entering our town so the first look is a positive of the community, other infrastructure projects will be implemented during this strategic process.
you can see Beit Ulla is a growing community with desire to be more prospective with the ability to be better the lives of the people and livestock.
