DENR distributes land titles in Sergio Osmeña town

By Alfonso T. Ruda

Sergio Osmeña, Zamboanga del Norte - A total of 128 land owners of this municipality have recently received their land titles from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-9 through the Zamboanga del Norte Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (ZN-PENRO) and the Community Environment and Natural Resources (CENRO)-Dapitan City.

The free patents were distributed during the conduct of Handog Titulo Program and One-Stop-Shop jointly conducted by regional office of DENR-9, ZN-PENRO and CENRO-Dapitan City in collaboration with the Provincial Register of Deeds last Feb. 10.

DENR-9 Regional Director Arleigh J. Adorable together with Provincial Environment Natural Resources Officer Nelson D. Velasco, Community Environment Natural Resources Officer Jose Mario Reyes and some municipal officials distributed the free patents to the landowners.

Velasco said the One-Stop free patenting activity covers some 80.15 hectares in barangays Penacio, Biayon, Poblacion Bajo, Poblacion Alto, Liwanag, Labiray, San Juan, Pedagan, Venus, Dampalan, and Situbo all of this municipality.

Handog Titulo Progam aims to bring government services closer to the people wherein landowners receive their free patents right where they are, instead of going to the DENR offices and Land Registration Authority.

This program is being implemented in support of the goals of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) aimed at improving the lives of farmers and their families especially those living in the countryside. (with report from Maribel Acama)
