A growing population and demand for services in Mandi has strained its surrounding environment and infrastructure. Utilizing a Smart City framework used nationally in India, this project identified promising features present in the city and determined potential future initiatives. We created a map of the local amenities and engaged residents and officials to highlight areas that could benefit from further development. Our fieldwork surveys and documentation identified potential areas for improvement in waste management and collection, parking spaces, road networks, and business centers. We proposed: (1) waste organization, separation, and collection, (2) city areas and processes for waste management, and (3) a multistory complex to alleviate congestion.
