  • From Samantha Smith on Letter of Intent signed for Spatial Planning and Housing Measures

    It’s about time that they bring back the option of assisting locals to build their own homes. Years ago, the OYOHF used to offer loans to locals for this. It allows your locals to be more independent and sufficient in being able to get the assistance to build and own their own dwelling. We went backwards instead of forwards when this stopped.
    Our older population, for the most part, own their own homes. They do not have the expense of having to pay rent from their mentions.
    It is a real concern for the younger population who does not have access to family land nor access to loans to build a home. When they reach the age of retirement, how will they survive on pension with the high rent costs and costs of living on the island.

  • From Kees Jansen on New environmental regulations to protect fragile flora and fauna

    Oei, this regulation will be a great challenge for the garages on Saba.
    The cost of upgrading their workplace to meet this new law will be significant.
    In the end, we all have to pay for this.

  • From Krish on Saba & Statia have joined the Dutch Caribbean Hospital Alliance (DCHA)

    This blog post effectively outlines the establishment and purpose of the Dutch Caribbean Hospital Alliance (DCHA). It clearly details the alliance’s formation, recent expansion, and its potential benefits for the member hospitals and medical centers.
    The post highlights the collaborative nature of the DCHA, emphasizing its role in facilitating education, training, and improved access to complex medical care within the Dutch Caribbean region. This collaborative approach can potentially lead to improved healthcare services and reduced reliance on overseas medical facilities for residents of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, and St. Eustatius.

  • From Dave Levenstone on Island Councils and Executive Councils Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba to join consultation round legislative amendment WolBES and FinBES

    The big question would be based on transperency to say how many residents on Saba made use of the internet consultation and how many were native Sabans?
    Sad part is that the representatives of the people of Saba did not find it fitting to come to the community and explain and hear the position and standpoint of the community.
