Tagum City housing project extended to LGU employees

Tagum City – Some employees of the local government unit of Tagum can finally have their own house and lot through the resettlement project Tagumpay Balai Residences initiated under Mayor Allan L. Rellon and Vice Mayor Eva Lorraine Estabillo’s shared leadership.

312 LGU employees of the City Government of Tagum had their first general assembly earlier this month at the city hall atrium where they also formed the Tagumpay Balai Residences Homeowners Association.

The Tagumpay Balai Residences will be situated in the LGU-owned 5.2 hectare lot in Purok Abaca, Barangay Mankilam. This socialized low-cost housing project will be financed by the National Housing Authority (NHA) which will also fund its land development.

NHA and the Tagum City Housing and Land Management Office presented the blueprint of the modern duplex-style housing design to the beneficiaries who would each receive 100 sq.m. total land area of house and lot.

The project is expected to be completed two years from now, Mayor Rellon remarked during his speech and will provide affordable and liveable homes to city employees.

Under the similar program, Mayor Rellon signed the Complex Subdivision Plans of the two (2) LGU-owned and initiated resettlement sites last May 6 which is a vital requirement in processing the notice of award to deserving homeowners of Apokon Grand Subdivision that has 628 settlers and Manuel Suaybaguio Sr. Phase III or Sto. Rosario Apokon Village that has 101 settlers. Ziyarah Manalo/CIO Tagum
