Vice Governor Cris Garcia reiterated the support of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) to the housing program in the province being pushed by Gov. Abet Garcia.
“We are one in our advocacy for the province in line with our vision of highest Human Development Index in the country”, the vice governor said in her message during the groundbreaking of the NHA Balanga City low-rise housing project in upland Brgy. Tenejero, this city on Friday.
Access to standard living like decent housing is an HDI indicator.
“SP will always support Bataeno families”, she also said.
“Your new place is flood-free, and there are many plants”, she also told recipients at the housing project attending the groundbreaking.
Gov. Abet Garcia led Bataan officials in attending the groundbreaking activity. Aside from the vice governor, Cong. Joet Garcia, Mayor Francis Garcia, NHA Regional Manager Araceli Natino, and other officials joined the activity.
Earlier on Friday, Bataan top officials also attended the turnover of 100 housing units at NHA-constructed Mariveles Heights Resettlement Project in Brgy. Cabcaben, Mariveles.
A total of 975 residential units will be built in the resettlement site.
In her message in the event, Vice Gov. Garcia said SP will continue supporting the housing program of the provincial government.
Board Members Popoy Del Rosario, Iya Roque, Ed Calimbas, Pepeng Villapando, and Rosita Sison attended the turnover ceremony.
Gov. Garcia is pushing for the construction of housing projects to provide decent houses to local residents and remove them from dangerous zones in line with the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Project of the national government.
