City to build ‘Taman Maju Bersama’, stop RPTRA development
The Jakarta Post
The city administration has planned to involve citizens in developing a green open space named Taman Maju Bersama.
Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno said Taman Maju Bersama (Move Forward Together Park) was different compared to the existing integrated child-friendly public spaces (RPTRAs), which was one of the signature programs of former governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama.
He said unlike RPTRAs, the planned park would involve citizens in the development process.
“The citizens will be involved in designing the activities and managing the park,” Sandiaga said, as quoted by kompas.com. He also hoped that citizens having vacant land would voluntarily offer their land to develop Taman Maju Bersama.
By developing the new park “theme”, the administration will no longer build RPTRAs.
Previously the administration said it faced difficulties in finding city’s assets that could be used as RPTRAs; therefore it would stop developing the park. The city currently has at least 290 RPTRAs. (vny)
