Anniversary marked with social initiatives

The PJ City Bus free service with 26 vehicles now covers six routes.

Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) celebrated the 15th anniversary of its city status on June 20 this year with several social programmes.

“Under the theme ‘PJ Prihatin, Komuniti Sejahtera’ (PJ Cares, Prosperous Community), MBPJ has allocated RM4.7mil for several community empowerment programmes,” said MBPJ’s Corporate Communications Unit in a statement.

“These include Petaling Jaya community grants; programmes on urban poverty eradication and smart, sustainable and resilient city; market and stall promotions; Petaling Jaya neighbourhood safety team; as well as empowerment of teenagers and persons with disabilities (PWD).

“The social initiatives, which are held yearly, are in line with MBPJ’s Strategic Plan 2021-2025 and guided by the 17 elements of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals,” the city council’s statement added.

In its effort to make Petaling Jaya a prosperous and resilient city based on its PJ Smart Sustainable and Resilient 2030 strategic plan, MBPJ has also implemented several major programmes and projects over the years.

These include PJ City Bus, Karung Kitar project, PJ SEED, PJ City Food Bank, urban farms, Petaling Jaya Neighbourhood Security Team (PKKPJ), PJ Eco Recycling Plaza and PWD-friendly initiatives.
