The space at Tanglin Halt may have shut down, but you can vote on plenty of other places to fix up.

If the recent viaduct transformation into a cool arts space is anything to go by, it appears that the government is pretty serious about getting ideas from the public about abandoned spaces around town and making something hip of it. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is also soliciting ideas on revamping “forgotten spaces” around Singapore. These can be anywhere from spaces between buildings, hidden alleyways to neglected backlanes. Oh and the top 10 ideas will get a $1,000 cash prize. Got an idea? Go here.

Also seeking the public's input is the National Parks Board. NParks wants to hear what you have to say about the future design of the Jurong Lake Gardens and is looking for it to become the west’s national garden.

It's not all good news though. The community garden at Tanglin Halt recently came under the chopping block for the Selective En Bloc Redevelopment Scheme, forcing regulars out of the area as the site got cleared out by the Singapore Land Authority. If you don't want that to happen to your favorite alleyway, best to speak up now.
