Burnham development studied
BAGUIO CITY – A technical group in coordination with the Burnham Development Committee (BDC) and the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) shall prepare the terms of reference (TOR) for the development of Burnham Park.
This was agreed on during the initial meeting last week attended by Mayor Mauricio Domogan, local government offices and representatives from academe groups.
The project includes a world-class sports complex, which would meet the training needs of Baguio athletes; economic enterprises to contribute for the maintenance of the park; transport needs within the area and environmental concerns for the park and parkgoers.
Said project shall be government-owned and city-operated, the group agreed.
The project shall undergo a detailed feasibility study including expenses and budgetary needs, and would have to be approved by the city council. Recommendations from the Investment Coordinating Council would also have to be solicited.
Evaluation from other concerned offices and other processes for government projects would also have to be complied with.
Another meeting is set this week to finalize said TOR. -juliegfianza
