In a radio interview today, Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny “Bambi” Emano has disclosed that two investors have shown interest in acquiring the area presently occupied by the provincial jail.
The more than 2,500 square meter area is located right at the corner of Corrales Avenue and Antonio Luna Street as shown above. With commercialization in the surrounding vicinity and the jail now congested, its transfer is just about right. The proposal to sell the area was initiated by the previous administration (LINK). The provincial government is now seriously considering the town of Initao as the new site. Accordingly, as per initial arrangement, proceeds from the sale will be used to construct the new jail in Initao which will cover at least between 2-3 hectares.
