Two model barangay halls with a gymnasium and a parking space will rise in two barangays in the city, one is known for developing some of the best talents in local college basketball teams.

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held at the Engineers Hill barangay covered basketball court that officially launched the dream projects that also include that of the Bayan Park basketball court.

The PhP25 million projects funded by the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation will see a three storey structure that will have parking spaces at the basement, a dream basketball court and the top floor that will cater to barangay affairs including the barangay office, said Engineers Hill kagawad Victor de Vera, Jr.

The hall will also house the Barangay Nutrition Affairs Office, a commercial space, a barangay e-learning room, a social welfare room, a day care center, a sangguniang kabataan office, a senior citizen office and a feeding center for young indigent residents,

“Definitely, we are happy since we are just one of the two barangays out of the 128 villages in the city,” he said.

He said that the chapel recently put up near the children’s playground will not be affected but will be “improved” as the building will rise from the old basketball court which has the barangay headquarters at the central portion of it and above the stage that is also used as official’s bench.

“This is really a good project for us since we will also have a big structure to house our constituents during disasters,” he added.

He said that the gym will be designed by the City Buildings and Architect Office with the City Planning Office and will be bid out later.

Among the tp players produced in said barangay court are Carlo Orduno of University of Baguio as well as his teammate Clyriel Elefante, among others.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by city officials led by vice mayor Faustino Olowan, Rep. Mark Go, councilors Vladimir Cayabas, Maylen Yaranon, Leah Farinas, Fred Bagbagen, Benny Bomogao, barangay officials led by chair Amado Felizardo, among others.
