Zambo Norte town gets P42.1-M projects from DAR

mindanewsZAMBOANGA CITY (MindaNews/09 February) – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has allocated P42.1 million for two infrastructure projects that will be implemented in the first semester of this year in Manukan, Zamboanga del Norte.

DAR Regional Director Julita Ragandang said the projects consist of two farm-to-market-roads to promote sustainable development and help expedite poverty reduction.


“These (projects) are in consonance with DAR’s thrust to continually deliver intensive support services to agrarian reform beneficiaries and other farmers in the agrarian reform community,” Ragandang said.

She said one of the two projects is a P27.7-million concreting of a 4.03-kilometer farm-to-market-road in Barangay Gupot, Manukan.

The second project is a P14.3-million concreting of a 2.5-kilometer farm-to-market-road linking the barangays of Lingatongan and Meses, also in Manukan town.

Manukan, which has 22 barangays, is a third-class town with a population of 35,589 as of the 2010 census.

DAR, Department of Finance-Municipal Development Fund Office and the municipal government of Manukan signed last week a tripartite Memorandum of Agreement on the project. (MindaNews)
