Singapore has also embarked on a new campaign to provide 245 hectares of "park connectors" by 2010. These are green corridors cut through urban areas of the city that will eventually connect every park and reserve on the entire island.
This transparent process, with inputs from citizens and communities, allows for local development planning by neighbourhood. "Since Singapore is land short and resource short, we had to develop an extensive planning culture. Our survival and growth depended on it." Says Michael Hawa, Director of Physical Planning
Another feature of urban planning that separates Singapore from virtually the rest of the developed world is its liberal housing policies. Instead of creating a city of car owners. Singapore created a city of house and mainly apartment owners. Over 90 per cent of Singapore residents own their own apartments or houses.
Singapore's open economy makes the city high vulnerable to events happening around the world. Example Asian financial crisis, the September 11 attack and lately the SARS outbreak.
