Like other counties in the country,Nairobi metropolitan services NMS administration plans to establish, implement and develop some of the projects proposed by residents in public participation forums.
These projects are expected to be implemented by various companies that have been contracted to carry out a number of responsibilities.
These projects are in the county Integrated development plan of 2018 to 2022.
However, among the projects expected to be implemented, the urban road authority KURA was estimated to receive a major allocation of 47 billion shillings.

Some of the planned projects include the distribution of security lights in the Uhuru Gardens area.
The construction of residential houses in the Kibra area at a cost of 550,280,000 shillings.
