Among the towns that have shown growth alongside the region’s progress in Pavia. Considered the smallest municipality in Iloilo in terms of area, it has become one of the fastest-growing economies in the province.
ProFriends Vision of Progress
As early as 2007, ProFriends envisioned Pavia’s potential. This is the reason why the fastest growing property developer established two thriving communities in Pavia – Parc Regency Residences and Monticello Villas. Ideally located near the City Proper, road infrastructures have even made accessibility easier. Just recently, the P680 million Ungka II flyover located at the junction of Pavia opened. The four-lane and 453.7-lineal meter flyover project aimed to ease increasing traffic due to continuous developments happening in the area.
Before the pandemic, in 2018, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) also completed three flood control projects in the center of Iloilo. One of the beneficiaries of this project is the municipality of Pavia through the Tigum Flood Control Project along the Jaro-Tigum bridge in Purok 1, Pavia. The P18.617 million Tigum Flood Control Project includes the construction of a 233.8-lineal meter river wall, with provisions of earthworks, drainage, and slope protection.
