UNDERLYING PROBLEM

Given that Fort Tanjong Katong is on the verge of being disregarded, how might we publicize its existence and promote its significance through tangible means, such that this valuable historical site will be more widely-known, especially among the Katong community, and will hopefully receive continued protection in the year 2008 and beyond?
