A good number of Nagueños don’t possess their own house and lot, Naga City Councilor Jun Lavadia said.

According to a Brigada News FM Naga report Saturday (May 13), Lavadia appealed to his colleagues during the City Council’s regular session to move toward ending the problem of housing in the city.

He bared during the same session that over 7,000 Naga residents don’t have a house or lot to call their own.

Naga, which has 27 Barangays, has a population of 196,003 as per a 2015 census. Most of the city’s population are 15 years and below.

Lavadia told the Council that a converted private land property in Barangay Carolina could be tapped to solve the local housing problem.

The politiko said that a township offering free housing could be built on the 100-hectare property, complete with schools, churches and commercial establishments.
