Request for donation of lot owned by city under study

The City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate chaired by Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas will soon tackle the request of the Barangay Council of Indahag for the city government to donate a portion of a lot in Quarry, Touch Foundation, Poblacion as site for the additional structural development of the barangay.

The Gavel learned that the barangay council requested City Mayor Rolando A. Uy to donate 3,000 square meters out of the 7,000 square meter lot which is owned by the city. According to the barangay officials, the barangay area has been congested due to developments, especially in the business sectors.

The biggest issue facing the community is the lack of space for future projects and structural developments that would meet the needs of the barangay’s residents, said barangay officials. It also mentioned that it is difficult to locate vacant spaces close to the new multi-purpose hall.

It was learned that most of the properties in Poblacion are owned by private individuals who built businesses to hasten the barangay’s development. Mayor Uy and City Legal Office favorably endorsed the request to the committee for appropriate action.
