ANGELES CITY — Some 150 displaced families from Barangay Margot received their residential lot certificates in Barangay Sapangbato donated to the city government by the Belvedere Vista Corporation.
Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. personally handed over the certificates of lot to the first batch of 150 beneficiary-families at the Sangguniang Panlungsod on April 12, 2022.
The Belvedere Vista Corporation donated a total of 3.9 hectares to the city government, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, on December 2021, as part of a Memorandum Agreement with the city.
Under the agreement, each of the affected family will receive a 100-square meter lot.
“We have exhausted all resources as well as efforts in pushing to provide decent housing to the affected families in Margot. Hindi po natin sila pinabayaan. Nakipagtulungan po tayo kina Vice Mayor Vega-Cabigting at mga City Councilors para maisaayos po ang kanilang kalagayan,” Lazatin said.
According to Councilor Atty. Arvin Suller, who was also present during the turn over, this is the first batch of the distribution of certificate of lots to the qualified beneficiaries. The schedule for the suceeding batches will follow suit.
“Ni-raffle na rin po natin para po malinaw at walang lituhan. Bali may mga assigned block and lot na po yung mga lote,” Suller explained.
To recall, the displaced families in Margot also received P7,000 financial assistance from the city government on December 2021, and earlier this 2022, respectively.
Also present during the signing are Vice Mayor Vega-Cabigting, Councilors Marino Bañola, Dan Lacson, and JC Aguas.
