800 houses to be built in Palayan to accommodate influx of workers
The city government of Palayan has partnered with the National Housing Authority for the construction of at least 800 new housing units to provide decent settlement for migrants and residents.
According to Philippine News Agency report, Palayan City Mayor Adrianne Mae Cuevas signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) for the P164-million worth of housing units with NHA general manager Marcelino Escalada.
The ceremony was witnessed by members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod and other agency officials on Tuesday.
Under the agreement, the city government will pay the amount through a continuing allotment in 10 years.
In the report, Cuevas said the provisions on human settlement “come with the program such as the concreting of various roads and upgraded social services.”
“Dumadami po ang mga tao, dumadayo at dumarating at gustong manirahan sa Palayan. Paano po kung walang magandang bahay? Saan naman po titira? Magtitirik na lang ng iba’t ibang klaseng bahay (More and more people are coming and wanting to live in Palayan,” she was quoted as saying.
The report said the influx of workers from different places was expected as more offices and businesses started to flourish in the city, the capital of Nueva Ecija, with the establishment of the Palayan City Business Hub.
