Gov. Abet once again chose to celebrate his birthday with the Capunitan fire victims as he led the groundbreaking ceremonies of the first 1Bataan Village in Brgy. Daan Pare.
“Kagaya po ng sinabi ko noong isang taon, tibayan po natin ang ating loob, konti na lang po. Ito na po yung kaginhawahan na inaasam natin para sa ating sarili, para sa ating mga anak at sa ating pamilya,” Gov. Abet said as he addressed the beneficiaries of the socialized housing project.
Department of Human Settlement and Urban Development (DHSUD) Regional Director Atty. Lyndon Juntilla, Mr. Julius Enciso of HLURB, Architect Henry Mayuga, Mr. Glen Paul Flores and Ms. Mylene Chiuco of DENR, Congressman Joet Garcia, Vice Governor Cris Garcia, Orion Mayor Antonio Raymundo, Balanga City Mayor Francis Garcia, AFAB Chairman and Administrator Emmanuel Pineda and Sangguniang Panlalawigan members are among those who witnessed the event.
The soon-to-rise 1Bataan Village which is included in the Community-Based Initiative Approach (CBIA) and mandamus program for the rehabilitation of Manila Bay is set to build 2,872 residential units with amenities like banca parking, multi-purpose hall, basketball court and will be replicated in 6 municipalities in the province.
