Residents[edit]

The neighbourhood offers a large concentration of middle- and upper-class houses and condominiums. The local residents have an association called "TDRA" or Taman Desa Residents Association where neighborhood issues such as security and festivities arrangement are met regularly by a committee. In 2011, a new residents association, Taman Desa Phase 1 Residents Association (TDP1RA) was established to represent and put forth the needs of Phase 1 residents of Taman Desa in particular the Safety and Security needs which resulted in a Guarded Security Scheme which has proven to be very effective as petty crimes dropped significantly with almost zero occurrence within the guarded area.
