92 families receive lot allocation certificates from city
By Jason B. Neola
At least 92 families were listed by the City Government of Naga as new recipients of certificate of lot allocations for St. Isidore Village located at Zone 7 in Barangay San Isidro, Naga City.
St. Isidore Village is one of the three housing sites established in 2021 during Mayor Nelson Legacion’s first term in office. The city government is allocating more than P200 million for the development of the three housing sites. The other two villages are the 8,000-square meter Liberty Village, also called La Presa, in Barangay Cararayan, and the 10-hectare housing lot inside the Carolina New Development Area in Barangay Carolina.
Sprawling on 1.5-hectare lot, St. Isidore Village can accommodate a total number of 180 houses for qualified beneficiaries of socialized housing under the LGU’s Kaantabay sa Kauswagan (Partners in Development) program.
Legacion thanked Fr. Francis Tordilla, parish priest of St. Jude Thaddeus Parish, for partnering with the city government in the identification of qualified beneficiaries to own home-lots in the city’s socialized housing project aside from the building materials it has provided in the urban poor housing project.
Legacion said 14 new housing units will also be constructed after several months in collaboration with the parish.
Engr. Rolando Campillos, head of Housing, Settlement and Development Office (HSDO), said the distribution of certificates was happily welcomed by the 92 families who were given priority in the acquisition of home-lots.
