Subd cmte to inspect socialized housing project in Balubal

THE City Council committee on subdivision and landed estate chaired by Councilor Edgar S. Cabanlas will conduct an ocular inspection of a subdivision project in Barangay Balubal.

This was agreed during the committee meeting yesterday in response to the application for Subdivision Development Permit of the King Sun Plain Homeowners Association (formerly Creed Farmer Village Homeowners Association, Inc.)

The socialized housing project covers an area of 39,076 square meters, containing 162 lots.

During the meeting, a representative of the HOA said there about 45 families already occupying the subdivision lot.

Engr. Eva Gales of the City Engineer’s Office said previously the application for DP was returned to the HOA since they did not specify the detention pond. She said the city requires at least a minimum of two-percent of the area for the provision of a detention pond.

Engr. Gales said the HOA gave up the portion of its community facilities for the detention pond situated at the lower portion of the subdivision. The area is supposedly intended for parks and playgrounds.

However, Engr. Gales said it is beyond the minimum requirement of one-percent since the HOA provided two-percent of the lot area for community facilities. The area is adjacent to the San Antonio Homes, she added.

A representative of the City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD) recommended the approval of the application since the association already complied with all the requirements set by the office.

Councilor Cabanlas scheduled the ocular inspection on August 4, 2022 at 9:00 o’clock in the morning.

Councilor Jose Pepe Abbu, Jr. was also present during the meeting and acted as the floor leader. (SP/JBDacer)
