CBAO starts census of buildings
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Building Official Nazita Bañez called on residents to cooperate in the ongoing census of buildings and structures being conducted by the City Buildings and Architecture Office.

The first inventory project to be done in the city since the CBAO was created in 2004, the project was pilot-tested in June last year and fully implemented in January.

It aims to establish a data base of all buildings in the city, their ownership, location and compliance to the National Building Code of the Philippines and other laws including Presidential Decree 17 particularly the provision “prohibiting encroachments/usurpations of any portion of road right-of-way” and Presidential Decree 296 “Directing all persons, national or juridical to renounce possession and move out of portions of rivers, creeks, esteros, drainage channels, and other similar waterways encroached upon by them…”

Bañez said residents need not worry that their structures will be subjected to demolition as a result of the census stressing that demolition matters need to undergo a process.

If ever, structures that will be subjected to summary demolition will only be those in the process of construction and not covered by permits especially those within hazardous and non-buildable areas such as steep slopes, road right-of-ways, waterways and parks.

Bañez said they resolved to implement this strictly in the aftermath of Typhoon Ompong last year after learning that most of the structures affected by the typhoon were not covered by building permits and built along high risk areas.

Administrative Officer II Rustom Dayao of the CBAO said that as now, they had surveyed a total of 25 barangays mostly at the central business district.

The CBAO said that with the data base, they will have a list of buildings that are covered and not covered by permits, not compliant with the minimum required setback, have converted parking spaces, located within protected areas and those that are considered important cultural properties.

The project is targeted to run for a year targeting an estimate of 90,000 structures in the city.
