Development plan for city’s Sto. Tomas property sought

BAGUIO CITY – An over-all development plan will be drawn for the city’s 137-hectare property at Sto. Tomas, Green Valley.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan last week directed city budget officer and Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) for Infrastructure chair Leticia Clemente, city engineer Elpidio Garabiles and city planning and development officer Evelyn Cayat to prepare the multi-land use plan for the said property immediately.

The mayor also tasked the said officials to submit at once the documents to bid out the road construction project in the area to make it accessible.

He said the plan and the road construction are needed to fast-track the development of the lot which has been reserved and declared for city needs.

The area is eyed as site for its Integrated Solid Waste Management System (ISWMS) project which covers a number of waste management strategies intended for long-term management of the city’s wastes among which a waste-to-energy technology, a central material recovery facility, anaerobic digester and health care waste treatment facility, the Environmental Recycling System (ERS) machines and the Engineered Sanitary Landfill if needed.

The area is also eyed for other projects like housing and cemetery extension./Aileen P. Refuerzo
