DAR turns over buildings, roads to CamNor ARBs

manila bulletin blue logoNAGA CITY, Camarines Norte — Nine of the 58 sub-projects funded through the Second Agrarian Reform Community Projects (ARCP 2), were finally turned over by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and ARCP National Project Coordinating Office (NPCO) to barangays Matacong, San Ramon, San Isidro in San Lorenzo Ruiz; Barangay San Felipe in Basud and Barangay Malancao-Basud in Labo, all in Camarines Norte, recently.

The sub-projects costing P25 million include the concreting of five farm-to-market roads with total physical measurement of three kilometers such as P2 Matacong FMR, San Ramon P1 to P2 FMR, Matacong-San Isidro FMR Extension, San Felipe-Mantugawe FMR, and Malancao-Basud P6 to P7 FMR.

Four Social Infrastructure Projects are the San Ramon Multi-Purpose Pavement/Solar Dryer and Day Care Centers of Barangays San Ramon, Matacong and San Isidro in San Lorenzo Ruiz.

The turn-over ceremony’s highlight were the blessing, ribbon-cutting, and signing of project turn-over documents by the DAR represented by Regional Director Luis B. Bueno, Jr. PARPO II Roseller Olayres, and PARPO I Camilo del Monte of DAR.

The Provincial Government of Camarines Norte was represented by Administrator Jose Boma, the LGU San Lorenzo Ruiz by Edgar Ramores, and the barangay captains of the recipient barangays.

“As soon as I signed the turn over documents, these roads, solar dryers, and day-care centers are now at your disposal,” said RD Bueno. “It is my fervent wish that you uphold and preserve those projects so as to achieve its maximum useful life and longevity,” he said.

These rural and social infrastructure projects are anchored on the improvement of agricultural production to boost farmers’ incomes and to afford the school children a decent place for their headstart education. The road networks are the keys to unlock the economic potentials for the ARCs.

Accessibility would lead to full utilization of agricultural lands because farmers’ produce would find its way easily to the market center.

Over all, the concreting of road is expected to directly benefit at least 1,500 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) in three municipalities. The usual travel hours will be trimmed down by at least half an hour, and a corresponding decrease in the cost of fare will benefit the public.

After the turn-over ceremonies, the DAR team headed by Undersecretary Rosalina Bistoyong paid a visit to two promising ARB Organizations (ARBO)- the Caayunan Multi-Purpose Cooperative (CMPC), known for its pure pineapple juice products; and the Basud Coconut Pineapple Cooperative (BACOPICO), which produces first-class geo-nets.
