Dads amend laws to strengthen housing programs in Cagayan De Oro

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 10 (PNA) -- The city council had enacted an ordinance to amend an existing local law to strengthen the housing program here.

City Vice Mayor Rainier Uy, the council's presiding officer, said Tuesday that Ordinance No. 13178-2016 was enacted to amend a 2005 and 2006 Ordinances, also known as the Comprehensive Socialized Housing Program.

He said that the newly approved Ordinance provided an additional guidelines for the housing program for the underprivileged and the homeless in the city.

Uy said that the previous housing programs of the city government were a dismal failure because it failed to accomplish its mandate to provide the housing needs of the target beneficiaries.

The housing beneficiaries in the past also failed to pay the required amortization and ultimately sold the awarded house and lot and transfer to other areas to join the squatters in blighted communities, Uy said.

Uy said that the cycle continues because of the failure to address the housing problem in the city and elsewhere where there were displaced settlers.

The newly approved housing ordinance cites the city government’s responsibility to promote social justice and make available decent housing and basic services in urban and resettlement sites, he said.

Uy said that ordinance also disclosed that the city’s population, which is growing at the rate of 2.69 percent annually would need 79,073 housing units in 2022. (PNA)
