RDC-10 endorses housing project in Brgy Pagatpat

The Regional Development Council (RDC-10) endorsed the site and land development as well as the housing construction components of the Pagatpat Resettlement Project of Cagayan de Oro City.

During the 115th RDC-10 meeting, the Council approved to endorse the two components of the project to the central offices of the Department of Public Works and Highways and the National Housing Authority.

The 14.11-hectare resettlement project is expected to provide housing to about 1,700 internally displaced persons and 470 information settler families. It is proposed to be located at Zone 6, Sitio Pamalihan, Barangay Pagatpat, Cagayan de Oro.

Jaime Rafael Paguio, vice-chairperson of the RDC-10 Social Development Committee, said the project will cover those affected by recent calamities in the city giving priority to the urgent and critical housing needs of evacuees and informal settlers to be affected by the right of way acquisition of the Japan International Cooperation Agency-assisted Flood Risk Management Project for Cagayan de Oro River and the national government-funded Camaman-an – Lapasan Waterways Project.

The city government will be responsible for providing the land for the project and it will undertake the preparatory activities.

The Pagatpat Resettlement Project is estimated to cost P964.92 million. The site and land development are estimated at P78 million while the housing construction is at Php854.28 million. (pia x)
