The National Housing Authority (NHA) has disclosed that phase III of the NASSCORP Village Housing Estate in Jartono Town, Brewerville, outside Monrovia is at the verge of completion.
The project will result to additional 70 housing units in fulfillment of government’s commitment to provide housing for citizens across the country. “I think we almost there; no hard work left again, what the NHA is focusing on right now is to do the panting, and carry on additional hand work before they can be turned over to the tenants by the President”, says managing director Samuel Wlue.
Speaking Thursday, 22 September on UNMIL Radio morning magazine “Coffee Break”, Mr. Wlue said phase three of the housing units is near the finished line, adding “We are very much concern about the living condition of our people; that is why we thought it wise to hurriedly construct additional 70 units for others to move in.”
He said the NHA is charged with the responsibility of providing affordable housing units to citizens across the country, so it is against this backdrop the project was initiated. According to him, once completed, the entire estate will play host to 163 houses, comprising three and two bedrooms, respectively.
President Sirleaf has brought a new dynamism to rebuilding public confidence in the NHA by the execution of its core mandate. Since the construction and dedication of Phase II of the NHA housing project in Brewerville last year, there has been a great demand for housing, Mr. Wlue noted.
He said the housing units will help in decreasing hardship faced by citizens in constructing dwelling homes across the nation. Meanwhile, the NHA boss further disclosed that plans are underway to relocate residents of the shanty town, West Point to VOA community. “We are in talk with a land owner in the VOA community, where our citizens who are residing in WestPoint will be relocated as soon as possible. The challenge we face right now is the budget, what we received for this year is little $1 million; as soon we receive that money the NHA will begin building houses for those that will be relocated in VOA, Brewerville.”
