Families plead case to stay in Naha City

Date Posted: 2010-08-09

Five families caught up in the land readjustment project in the South Uebaru area in Naha City aren’t happy with the way two cities are treating them.

The five families have been living on the border line between Naha City and Tomigusuku City, with part of their land in Naha City and another part in Tomigusuku City. They pay property taxes to Tomigusuku City and Naha City, although their registration is in Naha City and they are considered as Naha City residents.

Naha City doesn’t want the families, and is planning to readjust the border to move them into Tomigusuku City. After the readjustment, the five families have to move their registration to Tomigusuku city and become residents, but the five families are objecting this decision as they all want to remain as Naha City residents. Their plight has been discussed at the Naha City assembly where the five families pleaded their case
.
In a nutshell, Tomigusuku City wants the five families, and they don’t want to be changed. The Naha City Assembly asked Tomigusuku city to allow the five families to remain as Naha City residents but Tomigusuku City rejected the request and demanded the five families move their registration to Tomigusuku city.

“We bought our house because we love to be Naha City residents,”
one family member said, “so why did Tomigusuku City decide that we should move to Tomigusuku without asking us. This is not fair. We don’t want to move to Tomigusuku City.”
