Isabela City Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman met with Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) Undersecretary Samuel Young, January 18, to discuss DHSUD’s “Pambansang Pabahay: Vertical Housing Project”. The housing program is a national government priority program to address housing backlogs in different areas in the country.
Mayor Turabin-Hataman expressed the city’s interest in the subsidized housing program particularly after the series of flooding in the city that affected more than a thousand families. “Although only around 40 houses were totally damaged, the flood affected more than a thousand houses, an indication that these houses too are at risk in the near future,” the local chief executive said.
Meanwhile, the City Engineering Office through Architect Valerie Lustria presented the ongoing 300 and proposed additional 100 houses for IP communities under the National Housing Authority housing project. Also present during the meeting were City Administrator and concurrent City Legal Officer Atty. Adzlan Imran and City Planning and Development Coordinator Engr. Gay Palagtiosa.
