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

Update on Home Improvement Programme for Blks 619 to 629

Dear residents,

The Home Improvement Programme (HIP) Working Committee had our second meeting on 30 May 2012. There had been some delay to the programme as HDB was working towards enhancing our HIP with the inclusion of the Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE) programme.

First, let me share with you on the HIP:

The objectives of the HIP are to improve conditions of ageing flats and to address common maintenance problems. The scope of works consists of:

1. Optional Improvements

  • Toilet Upgrading (Can opt-out subject to passing a water test to prevent any future ceiling leak problem)
  • Replacement of Grille Gate
  • Replacement of Entrance Door (for existing non-fire entrance door only)
  • Replacement of Refuse Chute Hopper
2. Essential Improvements [fully funded by Government for Singapore Citizens]
  • Repair of Spalling Concrete (internal)
  • Replacement of Waste Pipes
  • Repair of Structural Cracks
  • Replacement of pipe sockets
  • Upgrading of Electrical Loading
Money Matters
Cost Payable for Optional Improvements [estimated to cost $12,600 per household] by Singapore Citizen Lessees as follows:
2/3-room: up to $630 (5%)
4-room: up to $945 (7.5%)
5-room: up to $1,260 (10%)
Executive: up to $1,575 (12.5%)
Government will foot the remaining share.
Essential Improvements [estimated to cost $13,000 per household] would be fully funded by the Government.
Singapore PRs need to pay 100% of the upgrading cost i.e. essential improvements (compulsory) as well as optional improvements (if they do not opt out).
Now, let me share with you regarding the EASE programme:
Objective for EASE is to enhance the safety of seniors living at home through installation of elderly-friendly features. Residents have the choice to opt in to the EASE programme.
Scope of Works:
  • Slip-resistant treatment on floor tiles
  • Grab bars within flat
  • Ramp/s within flat, where technically feasible
  • Gentle ramp @ entrance, where technically feasible (< 120mm)
Money Matters (Estimates only!):
Cost payable for full EASE package [estimated to cost $2,000 per household] for Singapore Citizen lessees:
2/3-room: up to $100 (5%)
4-room: up to $150 (7.5%)
5-room: up to $200 (10%)
Executive: up to $250 (12.5%)
Government would foot the remaining share.
PRs would be required to pay full upgrading cost.
Polling
Polling is required to indicate the support for the whole package. Only eligible Singapore households can participate in the poll. Polling is by block basis. HDB will carry out the work only if 75% or more voted “YES”.
How Long are the Works?
It takes about 10 days to complete the HIP with EASE for each household.
Mini-Exhibition cum Straw Poll
To provide you with more information as well as receive feedback, the Working Committee would be conducting the Mini-Exhibition cum Straw Poll on 7 and 8 July 2012, 9am – 5pm.
HDB representatives and RC members would be visiting our residents from now till the Straw Poll to update you on the programme. We look forward to your strong support for the programme to successfully benefit all our residents.
