With industrial boom, Bataan gov Garcia sees need for more houses
BALANGA CITY, Bataan―Governor Albert Garcia on Tuesday said that housing is one of the priorities of his administration, as investments in the industrial sectors here surge.
“Many Bataan residents already employed in industries here as well as workers from other provinces look for decent housing,” the governor pointed out in an interview by newsmen in his office at the capitol.
The governor also disclosed one proposed project involves building housing facilities at the Freeport Area of Bataan in the town of Mariveles.
Recently, Mariveles town residents here were introduced to local government’s “Abot-Kayang Pabahay Program” during the launching of Fiesta Communities Mariveles.
Around one thousand residents from Sitios Acapulco and Baseco County witnessed the ceremonial signing of Garcia, Mayor AJ Concepcion, and Fiesta Communities President and CEO Wilfredo Tan of the “Abot- Kayang Pabahay” discount voucher for assistance to availing beneficiaries.
Fiesta Communities Mariveles, located in Barangay Balon Anito, is the second project of Fiesta Corp. in this province and the 17th community in the North and Central Luzon areas.
With the collaboration and assistance from Pag-IBIG Fund, all units were made very affordable with a monthly amortization for as low as P2,080.
Fiesta Communities is eyeing Hermosa town as next site in the province after Limay and Mariveles.
