“The competition was held to recognise residents representative councils (MPP), which realised initiatives to this end, especially in urban villages.
“It also aims to create neighbourhoods that emphasise on physical safety and embrace the spirit of loving the city, in line with MBSJ’s vision of becoming a smart, vibrant, lively, friendly, green and sustainable city,” said Azfarizal.
