In order to prevent traffic congestion in the Valparai town area, parking facilities should be provided and the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation bus stand which is in a state of disrepair should be brought into use.
In Valparai, toilets with modern facilities should be set up and sidewalks, safety retaining walls, sidewalk stairs should be repaired in residential areas and a permanent solution should be found to prevent river water from entering houses during the rainy season in the banana orchard, Kakkankalani and Kamaraj Nagar areas.
Tourists will be more attracted if various projects are implemented to beautify the Valparai town area and attract tourists. This will increase the revenue to the municipality.
Boat House: The boat house, which was started on behalf of the municipality and is lying dormant, should be opened for use after completion of the botanical garden works. Due to the Valparai Hills, a solar power fence or moat should be set up around all the residences to prevent wildlife from invading the residential area.
The existing Panchayat Union schools should be converted into municipal schools and the necessary building facilities should be provided. The government college here should focus on students from the Valparai area.
