OUR GRASSROOTS ADVISER

April 2020 Message

Dear Residents

 

Exciting developments in your neighbourhood

The government has rolled out more measures to fight the spread of the Covid-19. Everyone entering Singapore has to observe a 14-day Stay-Home-Notice. Please follow the quarantine requirements and if you need help, do ask our grassroots volunteers or me.

Meanwhile, please buy groceries sensibly. There’s ample supply for all households. And continue to practise the seven habits of good public hygiene listed at: tiny.cc/neahabits.

Now, let me share some good news! All remaining eligible blocks in Nee Soon South have been selected for HIP in 2020.  HDB will implement these projects and engage a consultant team to execute the HIP design works. More details will be announced in 3Q 2020. The blocks are:
– 816, 817, 819 to 830 Yishun Street 81
– 865, 866, 867, 868, 870 to 874, 875,876 to 878,879, 880 Yishun Street 81
– 850 to 855, 858 to 860, 861, 862, 863 & 864 Yishun Avenue 4 / Street 81/ Ring Road
– 832 to 841, 844 to 846 & 848 Yishun Street 81/ Ring Road.

There are more projects in the pipeline:

a. After years of requesting in Parliament, the Yishun Sports Hall will finally be upgraded. It will have two covered tennis and multi-sport courts, a new cafeteria, an air-conditioned table tennis area, a bigger dance studio and a bigger gym. The Yishun Swimming Complex will also be upgraded.

b. A new operator for the Lower Seletar Reservoir Water Venture has been appointed by NParks. Residents can look forward to bigger and better water activities.

c. We have won another large-scale town-wide project. The big field surrounded by the 700-series flats will be transformed into a grand park, to be enjoyed by many generations of residents.

d. The HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse will be opened to the public this year.

Your constant feedback and support keep my team and I motivated. These are complex projects that require extensive engagement and research. But we persevered to engage with multiple authorities and these efforts have finally paid off.  Together, let’s look forward!
