QC gov’t to build more housing units for informal settlers

06/05/2012 [ ]

The Quezon City government yesterday announced that more than 800 socialized housing units for the informal settler families will soon be constructed in at least four other housing sites in the city.

Secretary to the Mayor and Housing Task Force chairman Tadeo Palma informed Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista during a regular executive meeting that the city’s pro-poor housing program will be expanded to include four additional projects this year.

The first two of the socialized housing projects are the Bistekville I in Barangay Payatas and Bistekville II in Barangay Kaligayahan, the Tribune was told.

In an interview with members of the Quezon City Press Club, Palma said negotiations have already started for the project plans and other concerns, including actual design, to finally jumpstart the Bistekville III in Barangay Escopa and Bistekville IV in Barangay Culiat.

The city official also said the Quezon City Association of Filipino-Chinese Businessmen Inc. led by its president Bobby Chua-Ching will finance 10 units of the housing projects, either in Escopa or in Culiat.

Palma added Bistekville V, also in Barangay Payatas, in a property of the Antonino family, and Bistekville VI in Barangay North Fairview, are also in the pipeline.

Both Bistekville V and Bistekville VI will accommodate more than 200 informal settler families, he said.

At the same time, Palma disclosed that more than 22 informal settler families had already moved in at Bistekville I while 44 others are scheduled to transfer to their units on June 12.

“Mayor Bautista indeed wants to fast-track the development of his socialized housing projects to provide decent resettlement homes for the city’s underprivileged residents, particularly the responsible poor,” Palma said. Arlie O. Calalo
