Sharjah Municipality

Founded in the year 1927, Sharjah Municipality is one of the oldest municipalities in the UAE and the Arab Gulf region. Its modern system is initiated when in the year 1971 a decree was issued defining its domain of activities to embrace the supervision of all public utilities and the rendering of various services. The decree gave the Municipality a strong start to work towards a civilized and economically and socially well-developed emirate. However, in this short expose the role of the Municipality cannot be detailed. The Municipality is a civil governing institute that manages all services and utilities offered to the modern civil society. The municipality has gone through many stages of development since its foundation affecting its administration structure, branches, budget and functions. Commercial Centres Sharjah City is well known for its various malls and souks (traditional markets) but the picturesque Central Market (Blue Souk) is probably the best known. The souk was built in 1979 and is characterized by its special arabic islamic design work which was guided by the desire to recognize traditional aesthetics by H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi Supreme Council member and Ruler of Sharjah. Shopping Malls Mega Mall City Center Al Fardan Mall Al Tawaun Mall Sahara Centre Mall Sara Shopping Mall Gold Center Car Market Sharjah is the biggest vehicle market in the entire Arab Peninsula ; traders from all the gulf countries, Africa , and the Middle East visit this market daily. The market location in Abu Shaghara gave the market its international importance. The market is built on a large area of 10,465 square meters including 415 outlets selling used cars, 21 computerized workshops for car checkup, and 194 workshop for car polishing, as well as the auction market “Haraj”. Municipality and the Traffic department offices offer their services to traders and customers. Cars Market includes: Showrooms Auction area (Haraj) Municipality Office Traffic Department Office Vehicle Checkup computerized workshops Car Polishing workshops Photos The convenience of having all the necessary aspects of car buying and selling in one area has boosted car trade in Sharjah creating a ‘one stop shop’ where all the formalities of car trading can be completed in one area. Residential and Public Parks in Sharjah Emirate Since its foundation, Sharjah Municipality has started its wide covering green projects to construct public and residential parks in different areas and cities of the emirate, believing that such parks provide important open spaces to Sharjah residents and tourists visiting the emirate. While establishing these recreational projects, Sharjah Municipality has taken into consideration the valualble directives of H.H. Shiekh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohamed AL Qasimi – Sharjah Ruler, to provide open areas with children’s recreational facilities, special places for families and ladies, in order to make them as social clubs for Sharjah society where people can meet and enjoy the open air. Green areas have been created to provide sports facilities and space for a range of outdoor activities such as football, basketball, walking, and jogging. Sharjah city now boasts 21 parks with a total area of 411 thousand square meters, whereas 12 gardens are under construction in new areas, which are part of a plan to cover all Sharjah areas. Drainage Department Sharjah Municipality Drainage Department manages main sewage treatment plant (located at industrial area 5) and 3 main pumping stations (up to April 2008). The sewage treatment plants utilize the sewage bacteria to consume organic material and convert ammonia to nitrates. Chemicals (chlorine) and ultra violet light are used to disinfect (destroying pathogens) the treated effluent water. Surplus solids are removed and biosolids are generated. The final sludge is treated and used as fertilizer.
