AROUND 300 families living in Sitio Bato, Barangay Ermita, Cebu City will be relocated to a medium-rise building (MRB) to give way for the redevelopment of Carbon Public Market into a first world market complex.
Lawyer Jade Ponce, head of Cebu City’s Land Management Council (LMC), said consultations for the project will officially begin in mid-April.
However, during an initial meeting with Ermita Barangay Captain Mark Miral and some residents, there appeared to have been no opposition to the project.
“So far, they liked the idea,” said Ponce.
He said the Council plans to have the residential building stand at 10 to 12 storeys high.
