City dialogues with Barangay 06 for NO BUILD ZONE POLICY

The city team led by Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan met with residents and business owners at Barangay 06 along seawall area regarding the move of the city to establish a NO BUILD ZONE at the said area. This move of the local government was borne out of the recent damage brought by Typhoon Glenda last July 15, 2014. Although no casualty was recorded in Catbalogan City, many coastal barangays were greatly affected.

“Aanhi kami yana ngan personal ko gud nga karuyag kamo makaatubang ngan makastorya kay maaram kami nga deri kamo nahingangaturog paghinunahuna ano an iyo maupay buhaton ngan kon ano an mahibubulig han gobyerno.” says Mayor Step.

Mayor Step further assures that her administration will be doing all the necessary assistance with regards to their relocation. One option is the ongoing Housing Resettlement Project at Barangay Lagundi in partnership with the National Housing Authority, another option is to avail of a housing assistance through the City Social Welfare and Development Office coupled with livelihood assistance to ensure that their source of income will not be affected or should they opt for a Balik Probinsya assistance for them to safely return to their home provinces.

The said dialogue was supported by City Councilor Jeffrey Uy, CPDC Engr. Arnaldo Aroza, CEEPUO Vic Pagarao, CDRRMC Action Officer Eliot Lopez, PNP Chief Carlito Abriz and several agency representatives along with the Barangay Officials of the said barangay.
