Streets of Marikina Heights light up

account_balanceMarikina chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The streets of Marikina Heights are now brighter and safer than ever, thanks to the Missionary Lighting program spearheaded by Mayor Marcy Teodoro and Congresswoman Maan Teodoro. The Westland Homeowners in Barangay Marikina Heights was the latest beneficiary of this initiative, as they illuminated the streets of their neighborhood to promote safety and security for its residents.

Missionary Lighting is a program that aims to provide street lighting to smaller streets and alleys that are not commercially viable for Meralco, the local electric company. The program is part of the Teodoros' commitment to bring hope and progress to the residents of Marikina Heights, particularly in low-income areas where people often feel neglected.

Aside from the street lighting, the Teodoros also took the opportunity to listen to the concerns of the residents of the WestVill Homeowners' Association (HOA). The group is facing eviction from their homes due to unpaid balances on the land they purchased through direct purchase. The total amount owed is PhP14.5 million, with monthly payments ranging from ten to thirty thousand pesos, depending on the size of the lot. With only ten months left to pay off the balance, the residents are at a loss on how to come up with the remaining PhP9 million.


Fortunately, President Emma Hermosada of the WestVill HOA decided to bring the group's plight to the attention of Mayor Teodoro, who immediately took action to find a solution.

The street lighting initiative was just one of the ways the Teodoros showed their commitment to bringing positive change to the community. Their response to the residents' concerns was met with gratitude and appreciation, with President Emma expressing her heartfelt thanks for the assistance they received.

The street lighting project is not just about lighting up the streets, but it also brings hope and safety to the residents of Marikina Heights. With the Missionary Lighting program, the Teodoros hope to reach more areas and provide a brighter future for the people of Marikina Heights.
