Abstract: The formation of Residents Committees since 1978 has aided in promoting social cohesion between residents in the neighbourhood. A case study of Kembangan-Punggol Reservoir Garden Resident committee aims to search for resident's perceptions of the committee. This research aims to find and attain feedback from the residents of their perception of the committee and level of participation from activities organized and to recommend ways to help the committee more prominent. It will also seek to find if a resident's profile will affect any of the respondents response towards the committee.Survey is conducted from 100 respondents and results tabulated. 2 different sampling techniques were used, using postal box survey forms and face-to-face surveys. An interview is also conducted with Mr Carlinn Chu, Chairman of the committee to explore the organization of the committee. The interview allowed a clearer picture of the operations of the committee and difficulties faced. Results from the survey indicated that occupation and education level plays an important part with the resident's perception of the resident committee and that race plays no barrier between the residents and the committee. However, the residents are not active in the activities and the committee as surveyed and many are not interested in grassroot organizations. There is a lack of knowledge of the reasons of formation of the resident committee and many are neutral with the performance of it. Much feedback has been gathered which can help improve and attract more residents to the committee.
