ORION, Bataan – The National Housing Authorities (NHA) is eyeing the construction of 40 modules of mid-rise three-storey type building including infrastructure development worth approximately P 1 billion for the 1,089 displaced families affected by an accidental fire that hit Sitio Depensa, in the coastal village of Capunitan, this town, last January 29,2019.
Mayor Antonio L. Raymundo, Jr. yesterday told The STAR that the government housing agency is keenly awaiting for the technical staff endorsements to start the rehabilitation project in the designated transfer site composed of 7.5 hectares acquired by the municipal and provincial governments with an estimated cost of P 18 million in the coastal area of Sitio 2, in Barangay Daang Pare, about 2 kilometers away from the fire scene.
Mayor Raymundo and Bataan Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia have discussed with NHA officers and planning authorities the possibility of starting this month the building of 40 units of three- storey structures to house the displaced fire victims .
He said that the contract with NHA provides that each family accommodated in the mid-rise structures would pay P 300 monthly rental fee for 30 years, however, pertinent facilities would be installed in the periphery with complete community center amenities in the relocation site like public school, public market, church, police center and other social services .
The relocation site is reportedly the largest single housing venture of its kind to be set up in the historic peninsula adopting Disiplina-style village built by NHA in Valenzuela City, Bulacan.
According to Mayor Raymundo many of the affected families lived in makeshift bamboo houses and encroaching the river banks and shorelines which are dangerous during times of calamities.
Most of the severely affected residents are reportedly composed of illegal settlers from the coastal towns of Masbate and Cebu provinces .
