Lion’s Head settlers given 30 days to voluntarily dismantle
by PIO release

Informal settlers within the vicinity of the Lion’s Head in barangay Camp 7 got a 30-day reprieve after the Department of Public Works and Highways-Baguio City District Engineering Office (DPWH-BCDEO) granted their appeal to reschedule the demolition of their structures.

The informal settlers signed a commitment that they will voluntarily dismantle their illegal structures upon the expiration of the 30-day grace period and that they will transfer to their proposed relocation site that was constructed by the agency.

The illegal structures were supposed to be dismantled last Oct. 10 and 11, but the 15 informal setlobbied for the resetting of the demolition to a later date to allow them to sell their products, especially with the influx of visitors.

The DPWH-BCDEO ordered the demolition because the structures built by the occupants encroached on the road-right-of-way along the national road.

The City Buildings and Architecture Office concurred with the demolition order after discovering that the put-up of the structures were done without securing a building permit.

DPWH officials are confident that the informal settlers will comply with their commitment to voluntarily dismantle the illegal structures.

The DPWH-BCDEO will institute repairs in the proposed relocation site of the informal settlers so they will be able to continue their selling souvenir items to visitors and at the same time guarantee their safety.

The informal settlers that were issued the demolition order refused to occupy the proposed relocation site built by the agency several years ago since they might not be able to sell there because it is far from the Lion’s Head, where tourists flock.

They, however, agreed to the contention that visitors will be constrained to patronize their products once all of them are transferred to their relocation site.
