The South Tangerang administration has allocated Rp 49 billion (US$3.3 million) to build a 20-hectare alun-alun (town square) located in front of the administration office in Ciputat. 

"The square is planned to occupy a 20 ha plot of land. In the first stage, [we’ll develop] 4 ha,” South Tangerang Housing and Land Agency land use division head Rizkyah said on Friday. 

Rizkyah acknowledged that the wide size of the square made land acquisition more challenging. “We’ve allocated Rp 49 billion, and Rp 40 billion has been used. So this year, we’ve still got Rp 9 billion left. It’s most likely that we’ll continue the project next year,” he said. 

"In the master plan, it is not only an office, as there will also be an alun-alun for ceremonies and other governmental events,” South Tangerang deputy mayor Benyamin Davnie said, as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com. (stu)
