Punggol will be realised as a Waterfront Town of the 21st Century. The key feature is having a new waterway that weaves through the town. The development area covers both sides of the waterway and comprises the Town Centre, Housing Districts (East and West), Town Park and Sports Complex.
To gather public feedback on how to bring about the
unique waterfront living along the waterway, a Call for
Ideas Exercise (see details for exercise) was launched
on 17 May 08 during the "Shaping My Punggol"
Exhibition. The exercise had closed on 30 June 08. A
total of about 390 submissions, in various formats
including text, jingles, poems and drawings, were collected from the Punggol residents, schools / organisation and the general public. Prizes awarded include top ten prizes of $1,000 each and 50 merit prizes of $50 worth of vouchers each.
