RESIDENTS at the Gat Lebuh Noordin Flats in Penang will have their say in choosing the colour to be used in a repainting project.

Pengkalan Kota assemblyman Daniel Gooi said a voting session would be held today for residents to choose among three colour options.

“The residents have a choice of beige, orange, and grey.

“The voting session will be from 5pm to 8pm and each unit is entitled to one vote.

“This is an initiative by the state government to allow the voices of the people to be heard in policies.

“Instead of letting the state housing department choose the colour, we decided to let the residents decide for themselves,” he said at a press conference at his service centre at Pangsapuri Pelangi in Lintang Macallum on Monday.

Gooi also said that the state approved the repainting project in June.

“The project is expected to be completed within 24 weeks which is by Dec 7 this year,” he said.

The repainting will cost RM284,900 and is funded fully by the state government.

“The project will be launched by Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, who is also Tanjong MP, and state housing, town and country planning and local government committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo on Sept 7,” he said.

The Gat Lebuh Noordin Flats scheme was built in 1970 and has 383 units.
