15 acres of the totally 156 acres and 10 guntas of the serene Vaccine Depot available under the more than 100 years old vaccine institute would be utilized for building a 1000 sq.mtrs Glass house.
The estimated cost of the entire development along with musical fountain, landscaping (6000 sq.mts), food court and utilities will be Rs.25 Crores. Yeddyurappa said Rs 25 crore will be earmarked for the theme park and glass house at Vaccine Depot in Belgaum, to commemorate the second World Kannada Meet (WKM). The theme park will be developed with statues of freedom fighters, littérateurs and pro-Kannada fighters.
The Save Vaccine Institute Action Committee has opposed this making of a glass house. Conservation and Social Scientists of repute have spent their time and personal resources to think things through and present a suitable plan to the authorities. They have also suggested that an agency like INTACH, which has the wherewitthal to give the best plan and implement it be please be contacted, engaged with, and taken into confidence in this matter.
Ever since our erstwhile CM Shri Kumaraswamy wanted to build a Vidhan Soudha there, a group of concerned citizens of Belgaum have tried to engage with the administration and the elected representatives regarding what is most suitable for Vaccine Institute.
Then the Vidhan Soudha was shifted to Hlaga-Bastwad and that moment had declared that Vaccine institute will be developed into a Heritage park.
