LINGAYEN- The Sangguniang Panlalawigan has approved Provincial Resolution No. 10-2013 authorizing Gov. Amado T. Espino Jr. to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the lot owners for the purchase of portions of lots adjacent to the Lingayen Airport.
The resolution, authored by BM Liberato Villegas approved by the SP during the special session held last August 23 at the SP Session Hall, authorizes Espino to sign the MOA with the owners of lots B-39, B-40 and B-41 who have agreed to the sale of portions of their lots for the purpose of the expansion program.
The expansion program will include the development of about 455.23 meter runway expansion that will enable the airport accommodate commercial flights.
The runway which is at 1.17 kilometer stretch at present will increase to around 1.63 kilometers.
Provincial Administrator Rafael Howard Baraan earlier said completion of the project will allow flights from Manila going to or from various destinations like Hongkong, Taipei and other places.
Provincial Planning and Development Officer Benita Pizarro said “the project will likewise trigger economic development in the province, increase tourist arrivals that will spur tourism and enhance business activities.
In another resolution approved during the special session, Provincial Resolution No. 51-2013 also authorized Espino to negotiate with the Municipality of Sual for the organization and creation of a corporation tasked to manage and operate the Sual Seaport in Sual, Pangasinan.
The provincial government, capable of managing and operating the seaport jointly with the municipality of Sual, has signified its desire to manage and operate the seaport.
Since the seaport is located in Sual, the province intends to organize and create a corporation with the municipality to properly and jointly effect the management and operation of the seaport.
Resolution authors Board Members Ranjit Shahani, Napoleon Fontelera Jr. and Antonio Sison said the provincial government was “undoubtedly competent to harness the full economic potentials of the said seaport.”
The SP said the Sual Seaport is a vital infrastructure project which can boost the growth and development of Sual town and its nearby surroundings as well as the whole province in terms of tourism and economic activities.
Pizarro said Espino is pursuing the full development of the projects which are among the three special mega-projects the provincial leadership wanted to leave as legacy of his last term as governor to the people of Pangasinan.
The other mega-project includes the eco-tourism zone. (PIO)
