BAGUIO CITY – Baguio mayor Mauricio Domogan disclosed that the Department of Tourism-CAR and the Department of Public Works and Highways recently coordinated with the city government here initiating a project that aims to further beautify this mountain resort during his weekly ugnayan last Wednesday.
The project is called “Rev Bloom Baguio” (revitalized Bloom Baguio) which is bringing back the old beauty of Baguio.
Domogan suggested to pass an ordinance specifying certain areas in the city to have uniform paint color.
The mayor will be meeting with the City Environment and Parks Management officials to designate personnel and manpower to do the beautification and at the same time monitor the same.
The proposed pilot areas will be establishments at the Central Business District.
The plan is to adorn the facades of stores in the city with flowers. “Apart from the gardens, they are also thinking of improving the center islands at Session Road by planting more flowering plants,” stressed the mayor. Domogan is hopeful that the city hall will also be re painted and will have uniform curtains by the end of the year.
The project will also encourage individuals to plant flowering plants and trees to make their jurisdiction attractive to residents as well as visitors.
Accordingly, a thorough evaluation and plans for the said project are yet to be assessed by the DOT-CAR and the DPWH in coordination with the city government and other stakeholders./Jho Arranz
