Informal Settlers No More – Mayor EdSa [ Wednesday, 14th of May 2014 | 3 years ago ]

Three hundred house and lot units located in San Fernando Heights, Barangay Malpitic here were awarded to almost 400 informal settler families (ISF) on May 12, 2014 in compliance to the Supreme Court’s Mandamus clearing all waterways of ISF to support the Manila Bay Protection and Clean-up Campaign.

The beneficiaries are from Barangays Saguin, San Jose, Pandaras, Del Rosario, San Agustin and San Pedro, who have lived along the San Fernando River, San Agustin Creek, Saguin Creek and Balimbing Creek in this city.

The San Fernando Heights Resettlement Project Turnover Ceremony was led by Mayor Edwin D. Santiago and 3rd District Representative Congressman Oscar S. Rodriguez together with National Housing Authority (NHA) Deputy Area Manager Engr. Romuel Alimbuyao.

“To lessen the everyday struggle of our fellow Fernandinos living beside creeks, the city government, in partnership with NHA, awarded housing units for those who are in the danger zone especially this rainy season,” stressed Mayor EdSa.

“For the awardees, you are now the model community of the city for never again will you be called informal settlers,” he added.

Congressman Oca Rodriguez, who spearheaded the project in 2013 during his term as mayor of this city, led the much-awaited awarding of door keys to the beneficiaries. He handed these over to Maribel David, the first of the six ceremonial awardees and president of homeowners in San Fernando Heights.

Also present during the program were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, NHA officer in charge and project manager for Pampanga, Bataan and Zambales Ines Gonzales, City Councilors Nelson Lingat and Noel Tulabut, and the barangay captains and kagawads of Malpitic and San Jose.

After the turnover, each housing unit will soon receive individual water and power services to be installed by the San Fernando Electric Cooperative and San Fernando Water District. CSFP-CIO
