Tahanan Village HOA Confirms In-Village Parking a Horrendous Problem

Parking is now a horrendous problem in our Village. (Tahanan Flash August 3, 2019 edition)

Those were the opening words of the Tahanan Homeowners Association, Inc. (THA) through the August 3, 2019 edition of their official bulletin the Tahanan Flash. The issue at hand is the worsening problem of parking inside Tahanan Village, Barangay BF Homes, Parañaque City.

Specifically, the THA pointed out that one-side parking is allowed and that this was clearly indicated on the pavement/gutter. They stressed that each homeowner may only park one (1) of his/her vehicles in front of the house because “fairness and good neighborliness dictates that he/she must allow the homeowner at the opposite side of the street (where parking is not allowed) to also park one vehicle as he/she has nowhere else to park.”

THA reminded its homeowners that the frontage of the standard lot of 280 square meters can accommodate 3 small vehicles or 2 small vehicles with 1 medium vehicle so that visitors (or anyone who needs the parking slot) can park their vehicles.

The in-village parking problem is not new. In fact, the THA appealed to its homeowners through the April 26, 2016 and January 29, 2019 editions of the Tahanan Flash to use their respective garages for parking their vehicles just so that the streets of the village won’t be too crowded.

A guard will monitor and report homeowners who do not use their garage as the default parking of their vehicles. The THA stated that it has several affluent residents who own at least three cars and have no parking spaces for those vehicles. They are concerned that as more homeowners buy new cars each year, the number of vehicles will overwhelm the number of parking slots available. A scenario like that could lead to friction and disputes between the homeowners.

Going back to the use of the garage for parking, the THA stressed that homeowners who continue to not use their respective garage for parking their vehicles will receive a notice with a request to park their vehicles in their garage. If the homeowner defies the said notice, the he/she will be slapped with a penalty by the association.

In my experience, I sometimes encountered parking problems during the times I visited friends at their homes in Tahanan Village. Sometimes I had to park my car on an available parking slot like twenty feet away from my friend’s house. All the time, I noticed that one-side parking was followed at the street where I visited a friend.

To report problems, make inquiries or give suggestions, call the THA at 809-4345 and 358-6858. The association confirmed to me that director Gin Elbinias is in-charge of the Parking Committee.

 

 

 

Tahanan Village Updates (June 6, 2019)

Hey everyone. Have you guys and gals been to Tahanan Village, Barangay BF Homes, Parañaque City lately? I got a slew of updates for you.

Firstly, the Tahanan Homeowners Association (THA) now has a new lineup of officers as well as heads of village committees. This marks the continued change that started with the THA’s last election held this past summer which saw new members for their Board of Directors (BOD).

For your viewing, here is the picture of the new THA leadership.

As stated in the above image, “The management of the Village is every resident’s concern. Write us your inputs, your ideas on how to improve our Village, your concerns. Join any committee or committees of your interest.”

If you are a Tahanan Village resident who is also a legitimate member (read: not a delinquent member), then you can get involved if you choose to do so.

Secondly, the air has been stinking for Tahanan villagers recently which is the result of the odor coming from Laguna Lake (on the other side of the Skyway). The odor has been caused by algae (a diverse group of photosynthetic eukaryotic organisms that are not necessarily closely related) and dead water lilies that have accumulated along the shoreline at the said lake.

The odor affected Tahanan villagers so much, the THA took action by discussing what happened and reached out to the City Environmental and Natural Resources Office of Parañaque City (CENRO-Parañaque). If CENRO-Parañaque would act, then it means coordinating with the Laguna Lake Development Authority and the City Government of Muntinlupa (note: Laguna Lake is part of its jurisdiction).

For transparency, posted below is the THA’s notice on the matter.

After leaving the Tahanan Village clubhouse, I looked around nearby and noticed the presence of Philippine flags on display. This was done in anticipation of Philippine Independence Day which is happening just days away.

And then I passed by the construction of a new community building which involved assistance from the City Government.

Tahanan Village Update (May 9, 2019)

In recent times, the water supply interruption experienced by Maynilad customers in South Metro Manila became a hassle for many families and business establishments.

During my recent visit at Tahanan Village in Parañaque City, I noticed the Tahanan Homeowners Association, Inc. (THA) issued a new bulletin through its official publication Tahanan Flash. It deals with the recent water supply problems and clarifies who in their village is responsible with the Maynilad water tanker deliveries into the village, etc.

Also take note that in order for a household to be served with water from Maynilad, the homeowner must call 1626 first and be patient for the water to be delivered which can take days. No call, no pre-assignment, no water.

For clarity, posted below is the full page of the Tahanan Flash. Read and learn. Please share this article to others. Thanks.
