PIA Press Release

DENR cadastral survey project for Maasin takes off

Iloilo City (6 February) -- The Cadastral survey project of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for the municipality of Maasin in Iloilo takes off with the presentation of the program to the members of the Liga ng mga Barangay upon approval of Mayor Mariano Malones, Jr.

The presentation was made by the project contractor Engr. Alfredo Muyargas, who explained the necessity of a cadastral survey which will redound to the benefit of the residents.

In a press release, the DENR said that Maasin was among those selected for funding in a 2008 proposal for a Cadastral Survey, with the towns of Anini-y, in Antique, Tangalan, in Aklan, and Tapaz, in Capiz.

DENR said they have been prioritized because the surveys previously conducted of these towns were only graphical surveys.

Further, Cadastral Surveys are expensive that priorities have to be set, but if there are local government units that can afford, they can have their own cadastral surveys, which are contracted to private surveyors.

The Cadastral survey covers the whole municipality of Maasin and will include three phases.

The first phase will be the installation of new Geodetic Control Points using numerical computation of coordinates under the new Philippine Reference system of 1992.

The second phase will be the installation of the barangay boundaries and mapping of the entire municipality, while the third, will cover the identification of lot owners in about five barangays that were not yet divided.

Contractor Muyargas said that the Cadastral Survey to be undertaken will be a big opportunity for the barangays to make a final boundary of their jurisdiction because this will be the basis for the computation of the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) and to settle barangay political boundary conflicts.

A Cadastral Survey normally takes about 18 months, but the DENR has given the contractor nine months to complete the survey, hence, the assistance and cooperation of the community. (ESS/PIA 6) [top]
