BAGUIO CITY – Fifty one residents of North Sanitary Camp now have the chance to own the lots they have been occupying for decades near the Baguio Sewerage Treatment Plant after the city government approved their application for the disposition of said lots in their favor.
The lot allocates last Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Agreement or Deed of Sale with the city government represented by Mayor Mauricio Domogan and witnessed by City Council Committee on Urban Planning, Lands and Housing Chair Councilor Edgar Avila and North Sanitary Camp Punong Barangay Virgilio Orca allowing them to purchase the lots from the city government.
Under the MOA, the grantees can buy the lot owned by the city measuring 5,554 square meters at P2,500 per square meter or a total cost of P13,885,000 as determined by the City’s Appraisal Committee.
Avila’s committee worked out the processing of the applications for which he said the applicants waited for 15-20 years.
The city’s approval was by virtue of Resolution No. 197 series of 1989 which approved the awarding of lots to the occupants and which paved the way for the conduct of a subdivision survey of the area.
The city council in Resolution No. 10 series of 2019 approved the sale and authorized the mayhor to enter into a MOA with the occupants.
Meanwhile, Avila said that 118 long-time residents of Teacher’s Camp-Cabinet Hill who were affected by Proclamation 613 “Amending Proclamation No. 290, Dated July 18, 1988 which Established the Teachers’ Camp Reservation, Baguio City, by Excluding from its Operation a Portion of the Land Embraced Therein Situated in Res. Sec. “C” and “F”, Baguio City and Reserving the Same for Housing Site Purposes Open for Disposition in Favor of the Actual Occupants” were also awarded the lots they have been occupying also last Tuesday.
On March 28, a total of 100 lot applicants at the San Luis-San Roque area who have settled at the city-owned cemetery lot will also be given the chance to own the lots.
Proceeds of the sale will be used to purchase a cemetery lot at a new site.
