Pangasinan housing projects on track

LINGAYEN- – -National Housing Authority (NHA) General Manager Marcelino P. Escalada, Jr. commended the provincial government for its implementation of the 2nd phase of the Maniboc socialized housing for employees/teachers and Aplaya West Resettlement Project intended to provide shelter for the ‘poorest of the poor.’

Escalada, who visited the two housing sites located at Barangay Maniboc and Sitio Aplaya in Barangay Pangapisan Norte of Lingayen town on February 24, said the projects are concrete manifestation of how the national government and the local government units (LGUs) are cooperating.

 “If we are able to replicate this project, we will be able to address problems on illegal settlers,” Escalada said as he specifically pertained to the resettlement project.

Escalada also commended the housing designs because they meet set standards like gender-sensitivity, flexibility and comfort of the design. “Hindi lang siya bahay but it is a home where people can live and children can participate,” he said.

Land clearing and development for the housing project which consists of 317 units started last year. Physical accomplishment to date is about 70 percent.

Meanwhile, PHUDCC officer-in-charge Angelito Pedeglorio said the project is intended as resettlement site for families living along danger zones like the Agno River bank.

Meanwhile, the Espino administration has started its clearing operations two weeks ago for the 2nd Phase Villa Maniboc socialized housing. Target date of land development completion is 180 days.  (PIO/RRB)
