Lyceum seeks land reclassifi­cation


THE CITY Council approved on first reading the resolution of the land reclassifi­cation of a new university in the city.

The Lyceum of the Philippine­s University in Davao, which opened last June, applied for reclassifi­cation of a proposed mixed-use developmen­t site from medium density residentia­l sub-zone to major commercial sub-zone.

The institutio­n is located along Sun City Road, Barangay Sasa, Buhangin District, with a total land area of about 166,512 square meters.

According to the proposed resolution, the land is under the TCT Nos 46-2013010279, 1462013004­442, T-401471, and T-401469.

Currently, the institu

tion is situated within the existing Sun City Subdivisio­n, hence its current land classifica­tion.

The applicatio­n for the proposed site will be utilized for mixed-use developmen­t containing projects such as school, residentia­l condominiu­m, office, hotel, convention center, commercial structures, and others.

According to the proposed resolution, its developer, the Cebu Land Masters Inc., informed the Local Zoning Review Committee body last July 3, in a meeting that the part of the land will also be for a greening project.

Accordingl­y, it is planned that the greening developmen­t would be 20.34% of the developmen­t. Part of the resolution states that the 20.34% greening space must be strictly implemente­d and preserved and will not be converted into any other usable space other than for greening purpose.

The developer likewise said that the area has existing connection for Davao Light and Power Corporatio­n and the Davao City Water District. Also, “a traffic impact assessment is also ongoing for the proposed project/s,” the proposal reads.

The favorable endorsemen­t has been referred to the committee on Housing and Subdivisio­n Developmen­t – High-end Projects.
