2020 | Nanyuki Kenya

Nanyuki is Laikipia's largest town. Straddling the equator, it was first registered as a town in November 1920 with the official recognition of a post office. Known as the gateway to Mount Kenya, the town now boasts a population of over 50,000 citizens. It's the staging ground for climbs of Mt. Kenya. It's also a supply point for many wildlife conservancies and ranches in the center of the County, and the focal point for the Mt. Kenya Flower and Horticulture Industry. Perhaps most importantly, it is becoming known for its quality of life - hosting many safaris, weekend retreats, and holiday and retirement homes nearby.

Preparations

Four elements characterize our preparations for Nanyuki@100

Smart Towns

Public participation in the planning of urban development for the soon-to-be registered city. Laikipia's pioneering Smart Towns initiative focuses on 8 towns and trading centers introducing the quadruple bottom line of waste management, affordable housing, public-private partnerships for livelihood and commerce, and public spaces.

Public Private Partnerships

led by our own Chapter of the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the private sector is working hand-in-hand with the County government to grow opportunities for investment, business success, affordable housing, infrastructure, energy supply, and waste management. The Chamber's 630+paid members are ready partners in Nanyuki's planning and greening efforts.

Green Spaces

Green spaces are central to the health and wellbeing of our citizens. In a country and a county known for its wildlife, biodiversity and majestic scenery, it's only fitting that these celebrated national traits are carried forward into our town planning and public spaces are maintained, created, and preserved. We draw heavily on the civic engagement of much larger towns and cities, encouraged by the lessons learned by the Dubai Award winner, Public Space Network. We use their Place Making Toolkit to guide our efforts, and employ their championship approach to developing the strength of community and conservation.

100 for 100

To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we will secure 100 acres of riparian land and public spaces along the Likii and Nanyuki Rivers. 100 acres of riparian parks and public spaces is a fitting tribute to our national heritage, and appropriate to our 100 year birthday party. We already work with the Mount Kenya Ewaso Water Partnership, the Laikipia County Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Laikipia Forum, and the Laikipia Natural Resources Network to make our birthday goal a reality.
