No more banners in KL

THE ban on banners and bunting in the Bangsar township has now gone citywide, as Kuala Lumpur City Hall will soon extend the ruling to cover the federal capital following a directive from the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry.

To curb the spreading of commercial banners, bunting, flyers and stickers in Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidn said he had directed City Hall to ban the banners after receiving feedback from the KL-ites.

“Lembah Pantai residents have been particularly vocal about the proliferation of these banners especially in areas like Bangsar and I agree with them that it has indeed become a nuisance,’’ Raja Nong Chik said, adding that he wanted the ruling to include other areas as well.

Nong Chik also advised residents to pull down illegal banners and bunting in their neighbourhoods.

As for the ‘legal’ ones; he said that it was the responsibility of the owners of the banners to bring them down when they no longer served their purpose instead of just leaving them the site.

Yesterday Star Metro reported that banners, bunting, flyers and stickers promoting products and services will soon be banned in Bangsar.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall deputy director-general (services) Datuk Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz said the local authority was in the midst of studying the feasibility of banning such banners and initially the rule would be enforced in Jalan Maarof, Bangsar.

Amin said City Hall would not issue licences for new banners and no renewal for those that had yet to expire.

The move was made after getting feedback from residents associations and rukun tetangga in the city that have been pushing DBKL to stop the issuance of licences to companies who put up banners and buntings.

“It is no secret that the local authority has been fighting a losing battle against illegal banners and buntings that are being put up at every nook and corner in the city, that’s why we have been helping DBKL bring these ‘eyesores’ down,’’ said a disgruntled Bangsar resident.

Bangsar has become a hotbed for advertisers who put up all sorts of banners on poles, streetlights, traffic lights, trees and mailboxes.

The situation got so bad last year that a serial bunting slasher started going around Bangsar vandalising banners.

For the past several months many banners along Jalan Maarof, Jalan Bangsar, Jalan Ara and Lucky Garden have been slashed into two.

The slasher was regarded by some residents as a sort of vigilante-cum-Robin Hood character who was helping DBKL clean up the township of the unsightly bunting, but as time went by, the torn bunting were not removed and left hanging in tatters.

Outdoor Advertising Association of Malaysia (OAAM) past president Datuk George Frederick said he fully supported Raja Nong Chik’s decision in banning banners and buntings in the city.

“I agree with Raja Nong Chik on this. The people in the industry must learn how to self-regulate. They must understand the aesthetics and the environment that go with the business,’’ he said, adding that DBKL must also do regular enforcement to rid the city off these rubbish.

Another industry player who wished to remain anonymous said: “ Views of the residents should be taken with concern as past conduct of such activities is testimony of how unregulated the banners and buntings has inconvenienced residents,’’ he said.

“Bunting have always been restricted to government campaigns, in DBKL however, approvals of such activity for commercial leaves a lot to be desired,’’ he added.

Bandaraya KL Disasarkan Duduki 20 Tangga Teratas Dengan Pendapatan US $15,000 Menjelang 2020 – Dato’ Raja Nong Chik

MELAKA, 11 April (Bernama) — Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur disasarkan menduduki tangga 20 teratas dalam indeks boleh berdaya huni dengan pendapatan tinggi sebanyak US$15,000 menjelang 2020.

Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan dan Kesejahteraan Bandar Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin berkata, pada masa ini, Kuala Lumpur menduduki tangga ke-79 daripada 130 bandaraya dalam indeks boleh berdaya huni mengikut Economist Intelligence Unit (EIA), sebuah badan penyelidikan Amerika Syarikat.

“Antara bidang yang akan diberi penekanan dalam usaha melonjakkan Kuala Lumpur di persada antarabangsa ini termasuk peningkatan kemudahan pengangkutan dan aspek kehijauan,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas menutup Seminar Penduduk 2011 anjuran Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).

Seminar tiga hari berakhir hari Isnin dihadiri oleh lebih 200 wakil penduduk seluruh Kuala Lumpur. Ia dirasmikan oleh Datuk Bandar DBKL Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail untuk mendapatkan maklumat yang lebih terperinci tentang Bajet DBKL dan juga penerangan mengenai “Greater KL” dan tempat-tempat ikonik.

Beliau berkata program transformasi Kuala Lumpur itu juga sebagai memenuhi program di bawah Bidang Keberhasilan Utama Negara (NKEA).

Raja Nong Chik berkata bidang pengangkutan mengambil masa untuk ditingkatkan kerana penambahbaikan infrasturuktur mengambil masa dan kesannya tidak akan dilihat dalam masa yang cepat.

Mengikut laporan DBKL, mod pengangkutan awam Kuala Lumpur mencakupi 12 peratus mengikut data 2009 berbanding kawasan metropolitan utama lain seperti Singapura, Hong Kong dan Tokyo, yang mempunyai mod pengangkutan awam lebih tinggi yang melebihi 50 peratus.

Mengulas lanjut, beliau berkata EIA juga mengambil kira elemen kebersihan dan kehijauan bagi penarafan bandaraya boleh berdaya huni.

Beliau berkata pendapatan tahunan sebanyak US$7,000 isi rumah penduduk Kuala Lumpur pada masa ini perlu dilonjakkan dua kali dalam mencapai sasaran US$15,000 dalam tempoh 10 tahun ini.

Raja Nong Chik hopes to put KL in top 50

KUALA LUMPUR is ranked 79 out of the 130 listed livable cities. The ranking has given Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Datuk Raja Zainal Abidin a new vision — to see it in the top 20 by the year 2020.

He said to achieve that status, there are several measures that need to be fulfilled and one of the main criteria is an effective infrastructure.

“The Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan are pride of the country. For a start, we hope to achieve Kuala Lumpur’s status as the preferred top 20 livable cities through the Greater KL/Klang Valley project under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP),’’ he said during a tea reception held in conjunction with the closing ceremony of the month-long FT celebrations in Precinct 3.

He said under the ETP, the Greater KL/Klang Valley will be transformed into a vibrant city and economic hub with quality infrastructure, green spaces and a comprehensive transportation linkage and WiFi availability.

He said as for Putrajaya, the focus was to transform it into a Green City.

“The distinguishing feature of Putrajaya is that 40% of the city area is designated for green open spaces with artificial wetland and 38km-long waterfront spanning 12% the total area of Putrajaya,’’ added Nong Chik.

He said the population of Putrajaya is 70,000 and with more vibrancy added, it would attract more people to the green city.

“Putrajaya is more than a government enclave. We are confident that with more green features, we will be able to attract not only more people to live here but also attract the business communities,’’ said Nong Chik.

Over 6,000 FT citizens attended the tea reception which was also graced by KL mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail and Putrajaya Corporation president Tan Sri Samsuddin Osman.

Nong Chik also presented a total of RM177,000 to 590 students from Kuala Lumpur who are pursuing courses in Egypt. Others who received monetary contribution include senior citizens, single mothers, disabled communities and Parent-Teacher Associations.
