BAGUIO CITY -- Mayor Mauricio Domogan recently created a team to conduct an investigation and joint survey of lots in Cabinet-Hill-Teachers Camp to address questions on the certificate of allocations and on the accuracy of the survey over vacant lots in the area.
In his Administrative Order No. 33, the mayor tasked a team composed of surveyors from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Cordillera Administrative Region (DENR-CAR), the City Government, the Cabinet Hill Neighborhood Association Inc. and the Cabinet Hill Allocatees and Homeowners Association to undertake the probe and the survey to settle the issues raised and to serve as basis in the future.
The move was prompted by the letter of DENR-CAR regional executive director Ralph Pablo on the concerns raised by some residents over the lot covered by the approved Lot 3 TS-CAR-000383 particularly on the issuance of Certificate of Allocations over vacant lots and the veracity of the survey.
Apparently, there seems to be a discrepancy between the approved survey and the verification survey which was recently conducted by the survey team of the DENR-CAR and the private surveyor of the neighborhood association.
Pablo told the mayor that the DENR-CAR and the neighborhood association agreed to conduct another survey with the participation of both parties “to shun any future issue with respect to the boundaries, actual or relative possessions of the lot claims of the concerned residents.”
The mayor gave the survey team 30 days to complete the survey and present to the affected homeowners the findings. (Aileen P. Refuerzo)
