Iwate prefecture called for setting up local ordinance to towns and cities, which ban on or restrict constructing new house in the stricken areas. The mayor of Ofunato city, Mr. Kimiaki Toda, responded positively to it and answered to reporters. ‘We would like to set up municipal ordinance and try not to build private houses in a danger zone.’

He also defined his position that possible danger area at the tsunami will be designated as ‘the disaster danger area’ and ban on living. The designated area shall be used as the site for plants and shops instead. All residents will live on the safety high ground and commute to these working places from there. ‘The most recommendable plan is that the designated area shall be purchased by the city under the financial support from the government.’ He added.

On the other hand, Mr. Masanori Yamamoto, the mayor of Miyako city, is very cautious on the issue. ‘If there are residents who do not accept setting up such ordinance, we need a discussion.’
