I don't think "suburbs" is suitable, because the list includes places like Orchard Road, Tanjong Pagar, Raffles Place, and so forth that are clearly in downtown Singapore. -- [[User:Ran|ran (talk)]] 17:59, Sep 24, 2004 (UTC)

Suburb exists, whether there are downtowns or not, hence suburb must be included for certain areas, while the rest could retain their original titles.

Should we include mention of things like the Central Area and urban planning divisions by the URA, or is that not needed? I'm thinking it would provide a sense of orientation as well as an outlook on the country as a whole, ie. division of functions among towns. -- Natalinasmpf 03:58, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)

The current effort to group them by regions looks horrid to say the least. Is it neccesary to embark on this in the first place?--Huaiwei 12:37, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
I think it gives the template some sort of organization, rather than just piling everything together alphabetically. - SpLoT (*C*+u+g) 13:08, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
