LOOK: A virtual signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was held on Monday, May 31, 2021, for the development of the General Paciano Rizal Park located in Los Baños, Laguna. LLDA General Manager, Joey Medina and Los Baños Municipal Mayor, Antonio Kalaw together with Engr. Jun Mistica (Resource Management and Development Depaerment, Department Manager III), Atty. Zenaida Lapuz (Legal and Adjudication Division, Division Chief), Cesar Quintos (Policy Planning and Information Management Division, Division Chief), Aristotle De Castro (Shoreland Management Office, OIC), Jocelyn Siapno (Project Development Management and Evaluation Division, OIC), as well as, Los Baños Vice Mayor, Josephine Sumangil-Evangelista were also present in the event.
The said development was conceptualized to establish General Paciano Rizal Park as a recreational site in the municipality of Los Baños that promotes ecotourism and effective environmental protection of shoreland parts of the Laguna Lake. The project area will have landscapes/greeneries/gardens that will serve as a buffer to the wind and heat and will also help regulate air circulation within the project and adjacent structures.
This is a continuous collaboration between LLDA and the local government of Los Baños geared towards the conservation and sustainable development of the Laguna de Bay Region.
