On Friday (12/7), an important step was made towards the resettlement of the 37 families of Gesteira, in the municipality of Barra Longa (MG), with the acquisition of the land where the community affected by the Fundao dam collapse will be rebuilt. The signing of the agreement between the Renova Foundation and the owner of the property was made official in Belo Horizonte. The acquired area is 40.41 hectares, is located two kilometers from the old district and was chosen by the community based on voting criteria defined by the residents and representatives of the Federal Prosecution Service.
In addition to the residences, a church, a parochial hall and a soccer field will be built on the site. According to the resettlement manager, Patricia Lois, the signing of this purchase and sale agreement is an important step forward in the resettlement of the Gesteira families. The next steps are the formalization of land regularization and the completion of the necessary paperwork for the acquisition of the land.
