MANGALDAN – The mayor of this bustling town said Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) was already reviewed by the Sangguninang Panlalawigan (provincial board).
THE MAYOR AND THE JUDGE. Mangaldan Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno (3rd from right) poses with Judge Lordaliza R. Rivera (4th from right) of Mangaldan’s Municipal Trial Court and members of the Sanggunian Bayan (Legislative Council) led by Vice Mayor Jojo Surdilla during the recent Monday flag raising ceremony held in front of the municipal building.
“We just had our first hearing of the CLUP by the provincial board,” said Mayor Bona Fe D. Parayno after she was told that Congressman Christopher de Venecia called on the four mayors of the fourth district to emulate Dagupan City whose CLUP is awaiting approval by the National Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board.
Milagros Padilla, chief of the Municipal Development, Planning, & Coordination, furnished Northern Watch the document that shows the proposed CLUP 2016-2026 underwent a public hearing last February 10 at the Macario Ydia Development Center (MYDC). The hearing was conducted by members of the Committee on Zoning Ordinance of this town Sangguniang Bayan (legislative council) chaired by Councilor Arnel Y. Fabia.
Padilla said the Committee was consolidating the recommendations and feedbacks from the various sectors that attended the hearing.
“The document helps the decision makers and stakeholders in the rational allocation, judicious utilization of the various but limited resources of the municipality and the sustainable use of physical and socio-economic resources, its proper allocation and regulation. This includes guidance on how to make decisions on public and private land development proposals, cooperative efforts and issues of pressing concern, such as farmland preservation. The CLUP provides direction for future activities for a 10-year period after plan adoption,” she said.
The CLUP guides the leaders in demarcating the areas which will strategically yield optimum production and increased efficiency of resources of the local government unit here. They are the basis of the municipality’s Zoning Ordinance.
Before an ordinance like the CLUP becomes a law, it should first be reviewed by the Provincial Board to determine whether the ordinance is within the scope of the prescribed powers of the legislative body and the mayor who signed it into law, according to the Local Government Code of 1991.
