PGMA inaugurates housing project for science workers

Manila (1 June) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has recently inaugurated a housing project for close to 500 employeers of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and a public school building in Molino, Cavite.

Dubbed as "Science Villas", the housing units sit on a 13.1 hectare site in Barangay Molino 3, Bacoor Cavite parceled into 570 homelots and allocated to 170 current and retired employees of the Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI), 200 employees of DOST and its agencies and 50 employees each from four other government agencies.

The housing project is directly funded by Pagibig, the governments socialized housing agency which will be fully completed in October 2010.

The science villas started when the Molino lands were acquired by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) now ITDI under the Friar Lands Act of 1120 for agricultural research and experimental sites. In 1975, one percent)of four hectares) was set aside for scientific and housing purposes.

In 1992, through a memorandum of Agreement with the National Housing Authority (NHA), the ITDI director used part of the Molino property as a demonstration site on the application of interlocking bricks.

Three years later, the ITDI sought the assistance of HUDCC to revive the housing project using a portion of the Molino property afterwhich President Arroyo issued an Executive Order declaring ITDI Molino property as a housing site in June 2001.

In June 2003, Pagibig's direct financing scheme was worked out to facilitate the development os aid property. (pbc/piA) [top]
