As a solid step towards completion of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP), the technical working group in-charge for the completion of the said document headed by Engr. Efren Saavedra recently presented among Department Heads the proposed Rezoning Ordinance of Catbalogan City last May 05, 2015 at SP Session Hall.

Under the proposed rezoning, the city has identified several areas as residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, agro-industrial, forest, recreation, water and tourist zones.

Apart from the said zonings, the city has identified proposed expansion areas such as reclamation projects, additional infrastructure and facilities as well as other future projects.

The said rezoning ordinance has already been endorsed to the Sangguniang Panlungsod for legislative action and public hearings and consultations are to be scheduled for purposes of dissemination and possible revision based from said consultations.

The zoning ordinance is an initial step towards the CLUP, which would futher contain in detail the proper allocation and regulation of the city’s land.

The CLUP is a vital instrument in achieving an equitable and balanced development in any given locality, which brings forth the judicious and sustainable use of the city’s physical and socio-economic resources.

The existing CLUP of Catbalogan has been accomplished when it was still a municipality and nearing its eighth year as a city already, the current administration of Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan targets its completion soon as this will concretize its development plans for all Catbaloganons.
