YES! We won 30k

30 Dec 2016
We did it! What an exhilarating night!
RA SS20 Central was awarded RM30,000.00 by MBPJ in the ‘Inisiatif Habitat’ category at the Majlis Penganugerahan "SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY AWARD PETALING JAYA 2016 DAN PELANCARAN PJKITA", held at Hotel Royale Chulan, Mutiara Damansara.

This award follows our entry in this MBPJ competition among RAs and KRTs in Petaling Jaya.
Our team of RA committee members, Dato' Koh, Dr. Joe, PC Chua and Yin Choo, put together the competition submission and view graphs presentation material. Dato' Koh was our presenter to the judges on 18 Dec 2016.
Our submission was grouped under 4 topics under our initiative tag-line:
1) Upgrading of Padang Facilities and Beautification of SS20 Central Zone
2) Cleanliness and Anti-Dengue / Zika Campaigns
3) Re-cycling Project
4) Composting of Garden and Kitchen Waste
While the team members have done the work in entering and winning the competition, the effort is by the whole SS20 Central community. For example, the effort put into the padang upgrade, beautification of our entrance, cleanliness of our common areas, organising and participation of residents in Anti-Dengue / Anti-Zika campaigns, single stream recycling project, composting, etc. Contribution of effort and funds in specific projects also came from our residents.
Special thanks to the following people who have given us tremendous help and support in making Central Zone a 'liveable' neighbourhood:
1) YB Yeo Bee Yin (ADUN Damansara Utama)
2) AM Jamaliah Jamaluddin (Councillor Zone 9)
3) Mr Lee Lih Shysan (Pengarah Jab Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal dan Pembersihan Awam, MBPJ) and staff
4) Pn Zuraidah bt Sainan (Pengarah Landskap, MBPJ) and staff
5) MBPJ Health Dept, Vector Unit
6) Anggota Polis, Balai Polis Damansara
7) KPJ Damansara
9) Pn Eileen Thong (Chairman, KRT SS20 Damansara Utama) and AJKs whom our RA has very close working relationship.
Let us continue to work hand-in-hand to share the RA's vision to have the best living enclave and put in an effort to reduce our environmental carbon footprint.
Thank you once again and Happy New Year 2017!


With Mr Billy Wong, MBPJ Councillor for SS2
