Marikina City has been awarded as one of thecleanest and greenest cities in the Philippines. However, despite the recognition,the City is not exempted from having other “eye sores” in society other than garbage. The quite large number of informal settlers in the city is one problem and as a solution the Marikina City Government has implemented its “Programang Palupa” which aims to provide lots where this marginalized group can build their houses and claim it as their own. In March 28, 2005, 31 families residing in NAWASA Compound, Provident Village, Tañong, and some families dwell in danger zone areas in Marikina City was given this opportunity and was relocated at Camacho Phase II, it’s in the last town of Marikina City and this site issituated in more higher area beside the riverbank of Baranggay Nangka, one of the resettlement site of the City for squatters.
