Oro mayor orders clearing of sidewalks along Cathedral
Cagayan de Oro City (4 September) -- THE General Capistrano Street leading to the St. Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral in Cagayan de Oro City will be reopened and all sidewalks along the area and around Gaston Park will be cleared.
This, after City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula signed Executive Order 2007 CGJ 018, which orders the reopening of Gen. Capistrano Street leading to St. Augustine Metropolitan Cathedral and the clearing the sidewalks along the said street, as well as around the Gaston Park, effective immediately.
Mayor Jaraula pointed out that there is a need to reopen the road to allow the passage of vehicular traffic and use the road for its intended purpose.
He also ordered Barangay 1 chair Anthony Abejuela, along with the Roads and Traffic Administration and the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office, to work together to ensure the compliance of the said order.
The city chief executive instructed City Administrator Griscelda Joson to conduct an inventory of all the vendors in the area for relocation at the Duaw Park--the park at the riverside of Barangay 1 under the bridge where they will be provided with uniform stalls.
The plan is part of Mayor Jaraula's effort to ease the traffic congestion in the city and to start his longtime dream of having a boulevard in the riverbanks of Cagayan de Oro River.
Mayor Jaraula had talked with Archbishop Antonio Ledesma, S.J. D.D. regarding the plan.
Mayor Jaraula also planned to clear the sidewalks surrounding the Lourdes College and the City Central School. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
