Manila Bulletin - - Luzon News - By JERRY J. ALCAYDE

CALA­PAN CITY, Ori­en­tal Min­doro – Lo­cal of­fi­cials here have in­au­gu­rated the fu­ture site of the re­gional govern­ment cen­ter in Cala­pan which was en­dorsed by the Na­tional Eco­nomic and De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (NEDA), the pro­vin­cial board and other lo­cal govern­ment units.

Cala­pan City Mayor Ar­nan C. Panali­gan, who sits as con­cur­rent chair­man of the Re­gional Govern­ment Cen­ter Man­age­ment Coun­cil (RGCMC), said the re­gional cen­ter will be con­structed on a 51,100 square meter govern­ment prop­erty in Barangay Sta. Is­abel near where other vi­tal govern­ment in­sti­tu­tions are presently lo­cated.

Ori­en­tal Min­doro Gover­nor Al­fonso V. Umali Jr., dur­ing a re­cent meet­ing of the Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil said that of the 39 re­gional govern­ment of­fices, 21 have al­ready sub­mit­ted their in­di­vid­ual mas­ter plans and per­ti­nent doc­u­ments needed for their even­tual trans­fer to this city from their cur­rent lo­ca­tion in Metro Manila.

Mayor Panali­gan said they have drafted a usufruct agree­ment which will be rat­i­fied by the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lalaw­igan which also fully sup­ports the move that Ori­en­tal Min­doro par­tic­u­larly Cala­pan City host the govern­ment site.
