PIA Press Release

Oro River boulevard development to start soon

Cagayan de Oro City (12 September) -- THERE'S no stopping the development of a boulevard by the Cagayan de Oro River near the City Hall area.

City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula revealed this as he met Sept. 10 with the residents of Barangay 13 under Chairman Obdullah Paasa whose houses will be affected by a road extension project at Montalban Street from Burgos Street to Isla de Oro.

Mayor Jaraula succeeded in persuading the affected residents that the project will benefit not only a few persons, but the entire city as well.

During the meeting, Mayor Jaraula explained that the road extension project will pave the way for the development of his long-time dream of establishing a boulevard by the river.

The city mayor allayed fears that the project will displace the residents in the area who have been living in the area since time immemorial.

Mayor Jaraula assured the residents that after the development of the area, they will be the priority in the awarding of lots for on-site relocation within the vacant lots in between Burgos Street and the Boulevard.

Mayor Jaraula said that the boulevard will not only provide an added tourism attraction for the city, but will definitely open economic opportunities for the residents living near the river as well.

"All these are just part of our intention to bring back the old glory, as well as the flora and fauna, that once teem the Cagayan de Oro River," Mayor Jaraula declared.

The development of the boulevard will begin as soon as the affected families can start the voluntary demolition of their houses.

The city government will pay for the just compensation of the households that will be affected by the project. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
