Sun.Star Baguio - - TOP STORIES - Lau­ren Alimondo Sun*Star Reporter

BUSI­NESS es­tab­lish­ments in La Trinidad will soon be man­dated to pro­vide park­ing spa­ces for bi­cy­cles.

This af­ter the pas­sage of a pro­posed or­di­nance man­dat­ing com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments and in­sti­tu­tions to pro­vide park­ing space for bi­cy­cles within the mu­nic­i­pal­ity and pro­vid­ing penal­ties au­thored by Coun­cilors Ho­ra­cio Ramos Jr., Arthur Shon­to­gan and Guiller Gal­wan.

Ac­cord­ing to the pro­posed mea­sure, bi­cy­cle, as an al­ter­na­tive mode of trans­porta­tion in­te­grated every­day has brought about sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in the promotion of healthy life­style and preser­va­tion of ecofriendly environment.

The mea­sure added bi­cy­cle use to travel dif­fer­ent places within the mu­nic­i­pal­ity re­quires the pro­vi­sion of the ad­e­quate park­ing spa­ces for safe-keep­ing.

A pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion will be con­ducted on May 22 at the Led­nicky Hall to clar­ify matters in­clud­ing those busi­nesses which do not have park­ing spa­ces.

“They have to at­tend be­cause we are en­cour­ag­ing and pro­mot­ing the use of non­mo­tor­ized trans­porta­tion,” added Ramos.

Re­spon­si­ble for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pro­vi­sions of the pro­posed or­di­nance is the Mu­nic­i­pal Engi­neer­ing Of­fice and the La Trinidad Mu­nic­i­pal Police Sta­tion.

Vi­o­la­tions of the pro­vi­sions of the pro­posed law will be pe­nal­ized for P1,000 for first of­fense, P2,000 for sec­ond of­fense and P2,500 for the third and suc­ceed­ing of­fenses.
