Planning Comm creates TWG for proposed city greenbelt project

THE City Council Committee on Planning, Research and Innovation and People’s Organization Accreditation, chaired by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya, in its joint meeting last week with the Committees on Public Works, on Public Utilities (Roads and Traffic Management), and on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation and Disaster Risk Reduction, respectively chaired by Councilors Romeo V. Calizo and Malvern A. Esparcia, created the Technical Working Group (TWG) to be headed by the Department of Public Works and Highways-10 (DPWH-10) 2nd District Engineering Office to study the plan and design of proposed Cagayan de Oro Greenbelt project.

An offshoot of the special report of Councilor Nacaya during the regular session two weeks ago, the establishment of the said facility is expected to ease traffic and add life to the city residents because of the presence of trees, parks, and places where one can appreciate the scenery between and among malls connecting to each other.

“Kay among nakita na mas daghan affected na highways like for example if we start dinhi sa Ororama (Now PureGold), Limketkai mopaingon na didto sa SM (Downtown), sa Centrio (Ayala Mall), Gaisano (Mall)… so naa sa DPWH ang domain kay mga highways man ni ang magkuros-kuros,” the councilor explained.

TWG for Situation Map

A TWG was likewise created to come up with a situation map to be headed by the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO), with the Office of the Building Official (OBO), City Engineer’s Office (CEO), and Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) as members.

“As a basis of this action, kato untang situation map na gi discuss ganina. If we have that, we can already identify the areas where we can make “overpasses”, but at any rate we cannot wait for this activity of the TWG, and we have to proceed with this project proposal,” Nacaya further pointed out.

With this, the councilor urged the concerned offices to collaborate in making the design, plan, and the program cost estimates. This will be discussed thoroughly after six months or early next year, Nacaya said.
