NegOcc town recipient of 4.6-hectare lot donation for teachers’ village

BACOLOD CITY, July 22 (PNA) –- The Municipality of Murcia in Negros Occidental received a 4.6-hectare lot donation from the Cuadra family that will be used as the site of the “Good AM! Teacher’s Village” in Barangay Cansilayan.

Mayor Andrew Montelibano and donor Jesus Ramon Cuadra signed the deed of donation Monday in rites held at Murcia National High School.

The area will be developed into a residential village for more than 350 teachers who Montelibano referred to as “modern day heroes worthy of decent and affordable homes.”

Montelibano said he has been looking for land donors for another housing project of his administration, and the Cuadra family responded to his call.

Processing of the local housing program’s paper works and site development will start before the end of July.

A program plan has been submitted by Municipal Assessor Randy Gamboa. Recipients of the housing program will be financially supported by Pag-Ibig.

“We will make sure that everything is in place and will be done fast. We are excited to provide good housing spaces to our people,” Gamboa said.

The housing project is expected to be completed in four months, and Montelibano said he will invite Vice President Jejomar Binay to lead the inauguration in time for the town’s fiesta early December.

“At the end of the day, the greatest legacy I can leave this town is providing my constituents with a home they can proudly call their own,” the mayor said.(PNA)
