My Block Sparkles 2016 – Round 3
5 August 2016

Launched in 2013, My Block Sparkles is an annual competition aimed at raising awareness as well as encouraging residents to keep their estates clean.

Based on the quality of the Social Dimension Proofs submitted as well as the Physical Dimension Assessment by our panel of judges for Round 2, we have selected one Residents’ Committee (RC) per constituency for the advancement to Round 3 of the competition.

The Social Dimension Proofs submitted include photographs, Powerpoint presentations, and even videos of the campaigns and activities which the RCs organised to promote the competition. The Physical Dimension Assessment was a point system assessment based on the level of cleanliness, amount of obstructions/illegal fixtures/dangerously placed items found in the block.

We hope that all residents will continue to keep their blocks clean and safe. All households within the top 3 winning blocks will be entitled to a one-off S&CC rebate. A plaque will also be installed at the void deck to recognise the efforts made by residents.

Operation WE Clean Up @ Hong Kah North
8 May 2016

‘Operation WE Clean Up!’ is a one-day exercise coordinated by the Keep Singapore Clean Movement to involve everyone, both young and old, to demonstrate their support and yearning for a truly clean Singapore.

Together with Dr Amy Khor Lean Suan, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Health and Minister of the Environment and Water Resources, MP for Hong Kah North and Vice-Chairman of Chua Chu Kang Town Council, residents in Hong Kah North took part in clean-up activities in the estates as part of the campaign.

While we were pleased to see residents actively participating in the exercise to show their support, residents themselves also felt a sense of accomplishment after sprucing up their estates. It is through such activities that we hope to also raise community awareness; encouraging residents to play a part in keeping their living environment safe and clean.

Commemorative Tree Planting Day 2016
22 March 2016

Last year, we came together as a nation to mourn the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, founding father of Singapore and our nation’s First Prime Minister. Mr Lee, a strong supporter of Singapore’s greening efforts, had a dream to turn our country into a garden city. Since the inception of the annual Tree Planting Day, he has never missed a single tree planting event.

One year later, we decided to honour that dream.

Together with Sparkletots Pre-school, Chua Chu Kang Town Council held 2 commemorative tree planting events; one in Chua Chu Kang, and another in Bukit Gombak. Both were respectively attended by Mr Gan Kim Yong, Minister for Health and MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC (Chua Chu Kang), and Ms Low Yen Ling, Mayor of South West District, Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Education & Ministry of Trade and Industry, MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC (Bukit Gombak) and Vice-Chairman of Chua Chu Kang Town Council.

It was a both a fun and meaningful day. The children had an opportunity to voice out their understanding of our nation’s progress over the years, and they enjoyed the short session out in the sun as they assisted Mr Gan and Ms Low with the planting of the Tembusu Trees.

As we progress together as a nation, let us continue working together to uphold that garden city dream for both our children, and our children’s children.

KEAT HONG 2020 Logo

Singapore, 13 February 2016 – Mr Zaqy Mohamad, Adviser to Chua Chu Kang GRC GROs (Keat Hong), unveiled extensive plans to rejuvenate Keat Hong at the constituency’s Lunar New Year celebration dinner. The plans fall under the vision of KEAT HONG 2020 where the constituency will see a significant part of the estate revitalised over the next four years into a vibrant and contemporary residential hub, incorporating the latest facilities to encourage an active lifestyle. This is the first time the constituency has branded all these developments under one banner.

Said Mr Zaqy Mohamad: “Keat Hong is a neighbourhood with a lot of history; where many residents have lived here for two generations or more. The estate, therefore, needs to be rejuvenated with the “hardware” component, while strengthening the community spirit with the “heartware” component.

We would also like to empower our residents with more say and involvement on how their estates can be improved under KEAT HONG 2020. They will have more opportunities to voice out their views and suggestions through our sharing sessions. The first sharing session will kick start in April 2016 under the Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP).”

Fostering Community Ties and Encouraging an Active Lifestyle

* “Heartware” will take the form of community initiatives by People’s Association and Grassroots Organisations to strengthen the community spirit in Keat Hong.

* The upcoming five-storey Community Club @ Keat Hong, located opposite Lot One Shoppers’ Mall, will be the first Community Club in Singapore to have an 18-lane bowling centre as well as a ceiling to floor LED wall located at the centre of the plaza where residents will be able to enjoy movie screenings and possibly, ‘live’ sports matches in future. Residents can also look forward to the family-friendly 24-hour gym when it opens in December 2016.

* Apart from this iconic lifestyle hub, together with People’s Association, the Grassroots Organisations will continue to serve the residents with initiatives which are tailor-made and catered for the different groups of residents.

Renewal and Provision of Additional Facilities

* “Hardware” consists of at least $50m worth of upgrading projects which will be undertaken by Chua Chu Kang Town Council, Housing and Development Board (HDB), Land Transport Authority (LTA), NParks and various agencies.

* Children in Keat Hong can look forward to Singapore’s first-ever “castle-themed” playground and an innovative new-concept cycling station called “Speed Racer” which uses human kinetic energy to power an electronic racing game board.

* Under the NRP, Blocks 401 – 428 in Choa Chu Kang Ave 3/4 will see improvements to their common areas. The heart of the precinct will take on new life as a Mega Active Lifestyle Hub, consisting of a playground, fitness corners, and game courts suitable for residents of all ages.

* Apart from the upcoming sharing sessions for this particular NRP which will kick start in April 2016, residents can also expect to receive similar invitations to attend sharing sessions or to provide their suggestions through surveys in the near future for various projects like Large-scale Town-wide and Repairs & Redecorations.

Improving Connectivity to Public Transport & Amenities

* Mooted by Mr Zaqy Mohamad, residents can expect the traffic flow to improve with the stretch of Choa Chu Kang Ave 4, between Choa Chu Kang Loop and Choa Chu Kang Drive, to be widened by the second quarter of 2016.

* Residents will also benefit from the phased implementation of sheltered linkways within 400m radius of the Choa Chu Kang MRT to major pathways. These will be implemented in phases, in tandem with the development of the new Community Club, road widening works as well as the bus interchange upgrade.

In addition, there are other initiatives being planned under KEAT HONG 2020 and these will be revealed in due course.

 

B.E.A.T Dengue
14 January 2016

Dear Residents, 

Recently, various media reported that not only are the number of dengue cases expected to increase this year, but the cases are also expected to spike earlier than in previous years.

We will continue to diligently inspect the estates for potential dengue breeding sites, and to carry out our scheduled fogging.

We also encourage residents to be vigilant of mosquito breeding in their homes. About 80% of mosquito breeding sites were found in our residents’ homes. The external areas such as construction sites, shopping centres and surrounding areas make up the remaining 20%.

We hope that residents continue to take all necessary precautions to keep safe from dengue.
