Butuan to launch Historical Park

by Robert E. Roperos

Butuan City (October 5) -- The city government here is set to launch one of the biggest and most ambitious projects aimed to attract local and foreign tourists to the city being the regional center of Caraga Region having interesting history and culture.

In a strategic planning workshop led by the city planning office, City Administrator Webb Racaza, who represented Mayor Democrito Plaza II said the construction of the project is an opportunity for Butuanon businessmen especially residents of the seven barangays involved in this project in showcasing their livelihood programs. "This is also a good opportunity in uplifting the economic status of the city", Racaza added.

Racaza also said the park is a venue for culture and arts as it features the history and heritage of the Butuanons shown in musical presentations and performances by national and local-grown talents.

With this, the Butuan Historical Park (BHP) Technical Working Group composed of public and private sectors of this city crafted its vision, mission, goals and objectives to ensure the realization of the project by year 2015.

Racaza further said that the historical park will be launched on October 16, 2006 along the one-kilometer riverbank passing below the historic Magsaysay Bridge, involving seven barangays. (PIA-13) [top]
