Media village in Davao del Norte pushed, supported

oct 28, 2013
Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario has supported the media village housing project pushed by mediamen in his province.
He urged mediamen to look for site to be proposed for land-for-housing project for mediapersons, adding that the provincial government can possibly make a tie-up with housing agencies like the National Housing Authority to introduce site development in the area.
The governor made his fresh policy pronouncement last week before mediamen celebrating for the provincial press freedom month this month. 
He said a one-hectare area can accommodate a less a hundred mediapersons in the province, with a minimum of 100-square-meter homelot size per beneficiary mediaperson.
The Davao del Norte Press & Radio-TV Club (DNPRC) has recently asked the governor to acquire land for the landless and disadvantaged mediapersons in the province citing his earlier commitment to build a media village.
At press time, the DNPRC has been looking for suitable sites in Tagum City to be proposed to the governor next week while it is on the process of formulating its proposed guidelines in the selection of eligible beneficiary mediapersons.
The DNPRC is proposing that the land to be acquired would be provided by the provincial government as land grant while site development under the assistance of a national agency can be made through a soft community loan amortized at long-term term period.
The DNPRC is the oldest media organization in the province founded in 1967 during the erstwhile undivided Davao del Norte.(Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
