Construction of the legislative building complex beside the city hall has finally started. The project which had its groundbreaking last year together with local government officials from Tainan City in Taiwan, has been idle for several months after the groundbreaking. The flood incidents in January this year also affected the construction schedule.
The legislative building will house the offices of the city vice mayor, members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) and the SP employees.
A one-hectare open space will be set aside in front of the legislative building to be used for commercial purposes where the city government is expected to earn millions in pesos.
The development of the vacant lot near the city hall compound will not only be purely expenses on the part of the city government but will ultimately be a new source of income for the city, according to earlier press releases.
Aside from the construction of the legislative building, the city government will also pursue the development of the Cagayan de Oro River Boulevard or the “Golden Mile” which will initially span an area from the Burgos-Chaves to Burgos-Cruz Taal streets.
