Fifty five (55) out of the 192 units of permanent houses constructed under the Zamboanga City Roadmap to Recovery and Reconstruction (Z3R) at the Tulungatung Resettlement site will be formally turned over to beneficiaries Saturday, Oct. 10.

A total of 383 single detached houses are set for construction in Tulungatung which will serve as an off-site permanent housing project for families affected by the 2013 siege.

As this developed, families who will be receiving their permanent houses in Tulungatung and the other sites underwent social preparation Friday afternoon at the City Hall conference to brief them on the rules and regulations for the use of the Z3R houses.

The social preparation was spearheaded by the Housing Division, City Social Welfare and Development Office, City Health Office, NHA, Zamcelco, Zamboanga City Water District and other concerned agencies conducted social preparations.

On the other hand, Mayor Climaco said the housing facilities will be turned over only when there are sanitation facilities available. Water and power  should also be available subject to the requirements imposed by the utility companies. — Sheila Covarrubias
