RESIDENTS are invited to give feedback on the proposed changes to the Petaling Jaya Local Draft Plan 1 (RTPJ1) and Local Draft Plan 2 (RTPJ2). They can do so at the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) headquarters in Jalan Yong Shook Lin.
MBPJ has made amendments to the RTPJ 1 (second amendment) and RTPJ 2 (first amendment).
“These changes are done based on public suggestions and comments during our workshops with them,” said Petaling Jaya mayor Datin Paduka Alinah Ahmad.
She said during the full board meeting that the changes were necessary in view of MBPJ’s future transportation and development plans.
Changes in the RTPJ 1 include one light rail transit (LRT) station in Taman Jaya, which is made as part of MBPJ’s Transit plans (Zon Perancangan Transit) for 2014.
In RTPJ 2, 21 plots of land have been earmarked for a change in land status.
The affected plots include state land, recreational reserve land and public space.
In addition, there will be six changes involving public transport services.
Mass rapid transit (MRT) stations include the one at 1Utama, The Curve, Dataran Sunway and PJU5.
Other train stations include the Ara Damansara LRT station and the Setia Jaya commuter station.
Residents can view the full plans at Menara MBPJ from now until end of the year.

Clean up to fight dengue

PETALING Jaya City councillors are urged to organise regular gotong-royong sessions in their area as a way to battle the increase in dengue cases this year.
Between January and Nov 18, a total of 2,067 dengue cases were recorded by Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).
Sixty areas in Petaling Jaya have been identified as dengue outbreak areas, with nine areas marked as “out of control.”
“Our initiatives of fogging and larvaciding will not help bring down the numbers if the public do not do their part as well,” said mayor Datin Paduka Alinah Ahmad.
She said during the council’s full board meeting that in most dengue cases, the source was found in the victim’s home and not in the surrounding area.   Read more ......

Friday, 22 Nov 2013, 10:19am
House break-in at Jalan SS20/14.

Intruder in a black MYVI was going round Central Zone 15 minutes before he broke into the house at Jalan SS20/14. He appeared to be a young man, slim, wore a dark shirt with stripes and black pants, like an office worker.

He parked his car in front of the house, forced open the gate, then went back into his car and drove off. A few minutes later, parked his car further away and walked to the house. Seemed to have operated alone.

Robbery at handphone shop

KLANG: A video footage showing two parang-wielding men robbing a handphone shop in Bandar Puteri, Klang, here has gone viral on social media sites.
The 1.42-minute video recording from the shop’s CCTV showed the men threatening a female worker with parang before ransacking the store.
Midway through the video, a customer is seen walking into the store and fleeing immediately upon seeing the robbers.
Suresh Kalyenannan, 25, who is the store owner’s brother, uploaded the video at 2am yesterday to warn the public about the robbers.
He said the thieves even snatched a gold chain from the neck of the frightened shop assistant.
“They left scratches and red marks on Ana’s (the shop assistant) neck,” he said yesterday.
He added that a barber next door came to Ana’s aid when she heard her screaming but the robbers had already fled the scene by then.
“She is still shaken by the entire incident,” he said.
The two suspects had allegedly entered the store on the pretext of buying top-up phone cards.
The owner lost more than RM1,000 in the robbery.
The video was first shared on the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foun­dation (MCPF) Facebook page before being uploaded on YouTube.
The video on MCPF’s page received more than a hundred comments con­demning the act while some called for the police to act immediately.
South Klang police chief Asst Comm Mohamad Mat Yusop said police were currently studying the CCTV footage.
