52.84 ha. in NorMin identified as relocation site for Sendong victims

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

OZAMIZ CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 31 (PIA) -- A total of 52.84 hectares of land have been identified as relocation site for the tropical storm Sendong victims in region 10.

Per monitoring report submitted by the National Housing Authority (NHA) to the Post Sendong Operations Center of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC), region 10, these sites will have a total of 6,602 lots.

Of these, 31.35 ha. with 3,142 lots are located in Cagayan de Oro City (CDO) while 21.49 ha. with 3,460 lots are located in Iligan City.

In CDO, the first site is in Sitio Calaanan, Barangay Canitoan, particularly the CDO Relocation Site, Phase 2, which has an area of 5.96 ha. for 628 lots.

Development arrangements for the site provide that the land development and community facilitation will be done by the local government unit (LGU), while the construction will be handled by NHA from funds of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

However, off-site development will be handled by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Per the latest agreement with the LGU, NHA will be the one in charge of the entire Phase 2, but will respect the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) earlier entered into by the LGU and ORO HABITAT for the construction of 200 housing units in the area.

The 2nd site in CDO is still in Calaanan, particularly, CDO Relocation Site, Phase 3, involving 9.4 ha. for 1,013 lots with the same development arrangements as in the first site.

The 3rd site in CDO involves 5.0 ha., for 500 lots at Xavier Eco-Village in Barangay Lumbia, donated by Xavier University (XU), while the 4th site is the 10.99 ha. for 1001 lots in Barangay Indahag, both of which have their master plans still to be worked-out and their MOA awaiting finalization.

In Iligan City, the first site is identified in Barangay Sta. Elena, involving 15.99 ha. for 3,000 lots donated by the National Steel Corporation (NSC), with the LGU as the land developer and NHA, the funder.

In a meeting last Jan. 19, City Mayor Lawrence Ll. Cruz finally changed the NHA designs/ plans and opted to adopt the Gawad Kalinga (GK) designs and the schematic subdivision plan is now prepared and completed by NHA.

Next is the Kapuso Village in Barangay Mandulog, involving 3 ha. for 260 lots, for which the Iligan LGU is now working on its land acquisition.

Also in Iligan is the 2.50 ha. resettlement project in Barangay Luinab owned by the Diocese of Iligan City for donation to the LGU, which is now working on the transfer of title to City.

Schematic subdivision plan for the Luinab project was already completed by NHA and turned over to DPWH for initial site clearing/grading of property. (PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
