Eunos Heights HIP with EASE Residents’ Gathering

Over 500 residents participated in our Residents’ Gathering, held in conjunction with the Home Improvement Programme (HIP) with Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE), on 13 October 2012.

In his speech, Eunos Zone ‘3’ RC Chairman, Mr Fong Yoong Kheong, shared with residents that there was a delay in the implementation of the HIP but it was a pleasant one, as the HIP was beefed up with EASE. Over the past few months, RC members and volunteers had visited all the blocks to gather feedback and garner support for the HIP. He also thanked Eunos Grassroots Adviser Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed for making HIP possible for Eunos Heights residents.

 

The Residents’ Committee organised the residents’ gathering to kill 2 birds with 1 stone – 1) Encourage participation in the HDB HIP Polling; 2) Allow residents to gather and make friends with one another.

 

We were honoured to have the audience of Mr Sim Wai Chin BBM, Chairman of Eunos Citizens’ Consultative Committee.

 

 

 

The event was made possible by the RC members and volunteers

HDB Home Improvement Programme for Eunos Heights (Blk 619 – 629)

Dear neighbours,

HDB held a straw poll and mini-exhibition at Blk 623 to gather feedback and gauge the level of our support towards the Home Improvement Programme (HIP) from 7 to 8 July 2012. I am glad to inform you that we have achieved at least 75% support in ALL 11 blocks!

Prior to the straw poll, RC members and volunteers had been working with the HDB to encourage residents to submit their straw poll. However, not everyone managed to do so and HDB officers had to follow up with calls.

For the upcoming Official Poll, the results from the 3-day polling would be taken as final and HIP would be carried out in the block only if there is at least 75% support from its residents. You would be receiving the HIP information booklet and polling slip on 4 or 5 October 2012.

Some residents shared with the RC on some concerns. We would like to share some of them and the response we gathered from HDB:

1. There are only 3 mandatory items for HIP:
a. Installation of clothes hanger rack (FREE)
b. Repair of Spalling Concrete (FREE)
c. Water test on toilets to check for leakages (FREE)
d. The rest of the items are optional

2. Our HIP is packaged with the Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE), so do support the programme as our elderly residents stand to benefit.

3. Some residents requested to be prioritized for HIP works as they are experiencing spalling concretes and ceiling cracks. We have highlighted this issue to HDB and contractors.

4. Toilet WC would be water-efficient, using 2.5 to 4 litres of water instead of the current 6 to 9 litres.

5. The EASE programme (Optional) provides for slip-resistant coating on floor would be applied to 1 toilet, 8-10 grab bars, up to 5 anti-slip aluminium ramps. Residents would be advised by occupational therapist.

6. RC members also sought assurance from HDB that there would be no reduction in carpark lots.

7. For Blk 621 residents, we have spoken to HDB on your concerns on the standardization of the LUP door and the new HIP door. We would share these updates in our Facebook group.

8. There are a slew of measures from HDB to assist residents who have financial issues.

HDB Home Improvement Programme Official Polling
