Going back to your city, there is one must in the longing
Still there as it used to be,
Nostalgia about Jogja enshrined in the song, may begin to lose its meaning. Jogja actual version now seems more distant from the first picture that makes many people misses. Every corner of the city can no longer welcome with friendly because full of new building construction that disturb the scene and full of noise pollution. Especially when you have to start looking for alternate paths to avoid stuck on weekends. Instantly your mind was struck by a moment of confusion, this jogja what is jakarta ya?
Terociknya comfort Jogja this has been a hot topic of conversation in the last five years. Not just just a long weekend when Jogja is flooded with local and foreign tourists, the usual days in Jogja have also been judged to be changed so uncomfortable. Unfortunately yes if this special city that is famous for this comfortable heart finally can no longer make you longing.
The construction of malls, hotels and apartments is getting crazy, permits seem so easy to give
Often when asking for someone's address, eh now even the hotel is used as a benchmark. Because so many hotels in Jogja today? Head north meet hotel, south meet apartment, east meet mall, west meet inn. Jogja used to be called angkringan city, now more where, angkringan or inn? In 2015 alone, the number of hotels in Jogja has reached the number of 1,160 units. What now is this privilege?
Of the total units, 60 of them are star hotels with 6000s rooms and 1100 other hotels is a jasmine class with 12,660 rooms. Not to mention this year, dilansir Tempo, there are additional 10 three star hotels that stand in Yogyakarta and Sleman. What is the end of these hotels is not surprising and exceed the capacity of tourists who come to Jogja itself? Perhaps this is the time, the local authorities look back at the permits of the establishment of hotels, malls, apartments or any towering buildings. Hopefully more restricted.
Bully billboards actually become decorations in every corner of the city. Maybe it's a sign of a stretched economy, but it's still disturbing
Is it wrong that some people believe that these billboards are gradually overwhelmingly drowning many of Jogja's cultural identity? In the past, five years ago, visual junk still existed on many levels, not so much as it is today. Is it a mistake, when some people think that the city government of Yogyakarta is more concerned with income than enforcing the rules?
Look around Jogja, so many outdoor billboards are even installed in forbidden locations. Super large-sized billboards are scattered on protocol streets and crowded centers and shopping. Almost all urban intersections are crammed with large billboards, more than one. Call it the intersection Gondomanan, Wirobrajan, and Jalan Solo for example. Hopefully the advertisement of billboards could be one of the city government's resolution in 2017. Hopefully no more billboards are blocking traffic signs and disturbing the riders.
Jogja congestion also increasingly became more and more things that need serious attention. Just so you know, the number of motor vehicles in Jogja increased by 8900 units per monthIf Jogja was once known also as the city of bikes, now it has really faded seems. Because the data states that the number of motor vehicles increased by 8900 units per month, then the congestion also sporadically appear and no longer inevitable. 5 years ago, is not Jogja street solid only at certain times only? At the time of departure and school or work, for example, or when the long holiday has come. Now? almost every hour, the streets of Jogja are very crowded and tend to jam. Want to cross aja difficult.
The increasing number of private vehicles, of course also the impact of the minimal and poor public transportation in Jogja. Is not that the theory? In the past, city buses are easier to find, in Sleman area there is also yellow city transport, minibus Jogja-Kaliurang also still easy to find. Now? Trans Jogja is also not much and not all majors are available. Other public transportation can be spelled out by taxis and motorcycle taxis. If you used to think riders in Jogja than in Surabaya for example, presumably now it is not much different.
Then in truth, Jogja want to be a city like what? Should the identity meltdown to follow the flow of modernity? Ah Jogja, may your comfort return as usual
If Surabaya wants to be smart and green city, Bandung wants to be the basis of creative city and smart city, then where will Jogja evolve? It may be true that some people think that this is the real consequence of a modernization. Nor does it mean to blame the facts or refuse modernization itself, or even want an original Jogja as designed by Prince Mangkubumi. But, does not anyone want Jogja to stay comfortable amid the current of modernization that will somehow stop?
The city is a physical manifestation of the cultural art of a society
About hotels, malls, apartments, billboards and all the hoaxes that accompany, is not everything oriented to the rupiah? If first, Merapi can be viewed from a distance, now it is no longer visible because covered billboards and billboards. Do not you want your Jogja back? The government should be on the side of the people, not the greedy investors. Do you agree?
