Iloilo City eyes restoration of Lacson ancestral house
Iloilo City is planning to restore the Lacson ancestral house beside San Jose de Placer parish church at Plaza Libertad in the City Proper district.
Mayor Jerry Treñas said the heritage house can help decongest the City Hall building by housing some of the departments of the city government.
Treñas said he is interested to negotiate with the owners for a long-term lease of the property (https://dailyguardian.com.ph/city-govt-eyes-restoration-of-lacson-ancestral-house/).
He noted the second floor of the building can serve as a function room for events, meetings, and gatherings.
Last week, the mayor conducted a site visit to check the heritage house and identify areas that need rehabilitation.
He said the restoration of the ancestral house is part of the thrust of the city government to preserve historic structures in the metro.
