NAVOTAS CITY – The Navotas City government has given new shelter to 192 families in the city to take them out of perilous areas.
Navotas City Mayor John Rey Tiangco and Representative Tobias Tiangco, together with National Housing Authority’s Juancho Corpuz, Chairperson Rochelle Vicencio, and other city officials, headlined the inauguration of NavotaAs Homes Tanza II in Barangay Tanza 2.
The housing project has eight 3-storey buildings which can accommodate up to 408 families.
“Hangad natin na bawat pamilyang Navoteño ay nakatira sa isang ligtas na tahanan. Ito ang dahilan kung bakit nagpupursige tayong mabigyan sila ng mga tahanang maaari nilang tirhan nang hindi nila pinoproblema ang kanilang kaligtasan,” the city mayor said.
(We want every Navotas City family to live in a safe environment. That is why we exert all our effort to provide them with homes where people do not need to worry for their safety.)
On the other hand, the city’s lone district representative urged residents to follow the policies set forth by the local government to ensure peacefulness and orderliness in their new community.
Currently, Navotas City has five in-city housing projects aimed at keeping families away from living along coastlines and riverbanks, or areas that are considered danger zones.
These projects can house about 1,800 families. Beneficiaries are required to undergo drug tests to ensure that the housing communities are peaceful and crime-free.
Families benefiting from this initiative should also adhere to no gambling and no drinking rule inside the housing project.
