Mayor Herbert Bautista on Monday signed an ordinance to develop a lot in Barangay San Bartolome as a socialized housing project for the benefit of the city’s informal settler families.
Introduced by Councilors Marivic Co-Pilar and Godofredo Liban II, City Ordinance 2815-2019 states that the parcel of land in San Bartolome, measuring 920 square meters, previously owned by Avelina Osias, has been found suitable for socialized housing.
“It is now necessary for the Quezon City government to use the land for socialized housing to solve the present urban poor dwelling problem of the city in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Code of 1991 and Republic Act 7279, otherwise known as the Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992,” the ordinance said.
The Housing, Community Development and Resettlement Department will undertake social preparation selection and pre-qualification of beneficiaries of the project, as well as the processing of their loan documents.
The City Legal Department, meanwhile, will be mandated to undertake necessary courses of action to transfer the titles of the subject properties to be under the QC government.
The Task Force Housing will be tasked to prepare the project feasibility study, necessary plans, specifications, and other related documents for the successful implementation of a proposed socialized housing project on the property.
