CMP calls for completion of projects
Governor Carlos M. Padilla discussed some concrete steps with the Heads of offices in order for projects to be completed the soonest possible time during a special Management Committee meeting recently at the NV Pasalubong Center, as he noted that the Convention Center, Executive Building and the LMET Conference Hall had suffered delays in project implementation.
As per report of the Provincial Engineering Office, the Phase I projects of the Convention and Executive buildings were completed, while the Phase II of the Executive Building will be finished before the year ends or during the first quarter of 2019. Phase II of the Convention Center will be done until August 2018. The Conference Hall project at the LMET needs to open a re-bidding of contract as its present contract had been terminated.
“There are a lot of people interested in using the convention center for activities this year. Make sure that we could provide them a convenient venue,” Padilla said.
With the decision for the Pasalubong Center to be designated as temporary provincial bus terminal, there is a need for funds to improve the facilities and urgent implementation of the Traveler’s Hub.
“We only need a simple structure here, as it is yet a temporary one. We will still observe and study the situation once the terminal starts operating,” the Governor said.
The multi-purpose hall at Capisaan, Kasibu also needs to be completed to accommodate tourists and help promote the Capisaan Caves as a prime tourist destination. It also came to the attention of the Governor the presence of informal settlers on top of the Capisaan caves. These settlers engage in some livelihood activities which might affect and destroy the cave system formations. The PENARO was tasked to make recommendations on how to address the situation.
Three projects are also expected to start at the Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Hospital (NVPH) as the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) approved a Master Plan for the completion of the main building, sewage treatment plant, and the outpatient department. #bg
