Barangay Pasobolong, some 12.8 kilometers east of the city is the latest recipient of a newly-constructed barangay hall, another testimony of the City Government’s enormous infrastructure program.

Incorporating the new design that reflects the city’s rich and unique cultural identity, the P4.2 million Pasobolong barangay hall is the 14th facility to be turned over to far flung and interior barangays in 12 months.

From January 2012 to present, the city government constructed and turned over barangay halls in Labuan, Tumaga, Dulian (Upper Bungiao),  San Roque, Baluno,

Cabatangan, Sinubong, Putik, Buenavista and Lumayang and rehabilitated and turned over the same facilities in Sto. Niño, Mercedes and Cacao.

Mayor Celso Lobregat and members of the City Council led by Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde spearheaded the turnover of the barangay hall to Pasobolong barangay officials headed by chairman Rommel Francisco yesterday afternoon.

Like in other barangay halls turned over since 2010, the Pasobolong facility’s distinct design and architectural tenor create a vivid image resembling the proud Hispanic and American heritage combined with the essence of modernity.

The Pasobolong barangay hall has an area of 323.26 square meters and was undertaken by Sky-J Construction. It is situated in a property acquired by the City Government through donation.

Last January 9, Lobregat, Iturralde and some members of the City Council motored to the mountainous barangay of Lumayang, located in the interiors approximately 29 kilometers east of the city to also turn over a newly-constructed barangay hall worth P4.1 million.

The construction of barangay halls is in line with the Lobregat administration’s massive infrastructure program and objective of accelerating delivery of basic services to constituents.

As of November 15, construction is ongoing for 16 other barangay halls in different villages in the city. — Sheila Covarrubias
