TBRA’s blogsite was launched by the ADUN of Tanjung Bunga, Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, who is also the Chief Minister of Penang. At a simple ceremony held at the Penang Swimming Club, on 9th December 2006, Dr. Koh clicked on the mouse button to log on to the TBRA blog site witnessed by YB Dato Seri Chia Kwang Chye, MP for Bukit Bendera and committee members of TBRA.

Dr. Koh welcomes the role of civic action groups such asTBRA in providing another channel of communication to government and its elected representatives and its mission to work together to make Tanjung Bunga a better town for all its residents.
TBRA was officially registered in August 2005 and has been actively campaigning to the authorities on several environmental and development problems that the residents have voiced out.

Mr. Lim Hooi Siang, the founding chairperson of TBRA, stated that many projects and programs are being planned by the committee to improve Tanjong Bunga and its amenity for residents but the Association is currently giving priority to environmental and development issues. He points out that the Association’s motto “Making Our Town Better Together” is aimed at promoting an inclusive and participatory approach to decision-making in the planning, development and improvement of Tanjung Bunga as a model garden town in the State.

Dr. Koh then held a two-hour discussion with the TBRA committee on various issues highlighted by TBRA in a memorandum and petition that was submitted to him some months ago.
