 Warga Negeri Selangor yang dihormati, 

MyPj adalah gabungan  aktivis bandar dari pelbagai kaum dan fahaman politik. Matlamat kami adalah menjaga kepentingan komuniti bandar, dengan aktiviti sukarela membantu untuk mencapai  kelasterian bandar.

Cabaran bandar seperti  kesesakan trafik, jenayah, banjir,   kekurangan sekolah, khidmat polis dan khidmat bomba, kekurangan kawasan lapang, kawasan hijau dan taman kerana  salahguna kuasa pihak berkuasa  sentiasa berleluasa. Sebagai warga bandar kita perlu sentiasa waspada.

Pernah dengar TOD (Transit Oriented Development) ? Dibawah polisi TOD, KAWASAN berhampiran setesen MRT LRT KTM akan punya kepadatan penduduk berganda-ganda. Walau pada dasarnya baik tetapi kerana fokusnya adalah kepada kepadatan atau membina menara setinggi mungkin, tanpa mengambillkira keperluan asas, warga bandar yang menerima musibah.

Pada pemaju, mereka nampak RM$$$$ tanpa mengira akibat. Tanpa peraturan dan garispanduan, kuasa disalahguna. Itu yang sedang berlaku dimana kita lihat kondo melebihi 50 tingkat dibina dikawasan yang kita tahu tidak dapat menampungnya, diatas alasan TOD. Di Kelana Jaya, yang tertinggi masa kini ialah 59 tingkat. 

Olih kerana itu MyPj gabungan aktivis PJ telah memulakan petisyen kepada MB untuk menarik balik polisi ini, di kaji dan ditetap peraturan, setelah mendengar maklumbalas rakyat. 

The Transit Oriented Development (TOD)  is a Selangor State policy initiative which has been forced upon urban residents particularly in Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, and other urban councils within the state, allowing an increase in plot ratio from 1:4 to 1:8 in all developments  connected to the LRT and MRT. Even with the plot ratio limit of 1:4, which we are used to, the city’s infrastructure  and utilities are already under severe pressure and we are feeling the strain.

TOD was supposed to be a good policy. But a blanket policy without strict procedures, customisation to local challenges,  rules and guidelines is likely to be abused.

ABUSED it has been! 

Most recently, the controversial  A&W Project is a classic case of how flawed the TOD policy is. The State Policy as in its structural plan has been used by the authorities and developers as a blank cheque. 

The TOD will have the greatest impact on our citiy; its population density, traffic, sewage, utilities, policing, schooling. The quality of life in PJ and SJ will be greatly affected. Yet the TOD was formulated, approved and executed without sincere public participation or thorough process and sincere implementation. 

On this basis, we urge you to join the #TolakPjTOD movement to get the State of Selangor to put on hold  the existing TOD policy in its present form and initiate thorough impact studies with sincere  public participation so that a holistic policy complete with strict rules and guidelines can be legislated and strictly followed. 

In the interim to prevent further abuses we call upon our mayor, councillors, planners and OSC members to strictly follow the existing MBPJ guidelines.
