Olongapo CADASTRAL SURVEY PROJECT
After a series of meetings and massive dissemination of information, the Cadastral Lot Survey project of Olongapo City has already covered sixty-seven percent (67%) of the different barangays in the whole of Olongapo with improved cooperation from residents.
City Planning and Development Office Head Engr. Marivic Nierras, however, reminded that: “Dapat din na malaman na may deadline ang surveyor at pag hindi nakapag-sukat ay hindi na maisasama ang kanilang lote sa pagsusukat. Within 3 to 4 weeks ay matatapos na ang ground survey. Sayang nga at libre ‘yon at kung hindi sila makaka-avail ay sayang ang pagkakataon. Pwedi po silang magsadya sa # 25 Jones St. Brgy. New Asinan sa office ng AB Surveyor para magpa-schedule pag hindi pa sila napuntahan,’’ she added.
To ease the residents’ doubts and understand what Cadastral Survey is all about, Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. has directed City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) and Public Affairs Office (PAO) to disseminate information with regards to the project.
The Cadastral Survey Project of Olongapo City is one of the many priority projects of the local government under Bong Gordon’s administration. This project has a fund of P36 million and is expected to be completed on or before four hundred eighty (480) days as stated in the contract. The funding for this project came from Senator Richard Gordon through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
