Mayor Step visits ongoing Parola rehab and Pieta dev’t

Despite her busy schedule, Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan visited the ongoing development of our very own parola at Barangay Mercedes and the upcoming renovation of our Pieta Park, both for the upcoming quadricentennial celebration of Catbalogan this August 2016.

This is part of the efforts to reintroduce two of several structures in our city with significant historical relevance and tourism potentials.

Phase I of the repair of our parola was funded by the DOT under the Bottom-Up Budgeting (BUB) and now we have added several elements to make it more relevant and appealing.

The Pieta Park on the other hand, we will commence with the repairs and several small improvements while waiting for possible private developers to maximize the space while helping our own parish generate funds for its programs and operations.

“Ini kaparte han aton padayon nga paghatag duon han turismo como usa nga dako nga potensyal para han ekonomiya, pantrabahuan ngan pagpreserba han aton kultura.” Mayor Step shares.
