23rd July 2002 - URA Draft Concept Plan
After examining the
URA's Rustic Coast proposal for Changi, I was perplexed. Though the intention of the Identity Plan was to build a sense of rootedness in Singaporeans, the plan reflected little of the heritage of Changi. Were the stories I had the good fortune of encountering unavailable to most? This webpage compilation is thus a first stab at making some content available with the help of many individuals; see the individual pages for authors. This is an ongoing project.
