No strategic plan for Haifa

The municipality, said Lindenstrauss, failed to "plan in advance a strategic plan that redefines the land use in Haifa or determines the municipality's policies regarding commercial areas in the city." In the Checkpost and Marble Plant areas, the Yefe Nof company which is responsible for the city's building project, selected contractors without putting the two projects up for bidding. Although in the earliest stages of planning the two projects, serious parking shortages were noted, Yefe Nof never arranged for sufficient parking areas to be built at either of the two locations, the comptroller complained.
