Construction of P170 M Panabo Market Complex to start January- SILVOSA

Dec 16-22, 2010

P70 M public memorial park will also be constructed

Mayor Jose “Joe” Silvosa Sr has bared in an interview that the construction of the P170-million Panabo City Market Complex will be started comes January next year.
“The money for the project is already for release, “he said.
The project is a two-storey market complex which has commercial and office spaces for leasing. It is to be funded by a loan from the Land Bank of the Philippines.
The edifice will rise from the existing commercial space owned by the city government where there are many chicken barbeque stalls and carenderias at present.
Relocation for the stall and space leasees from the present site to nearby old building where once the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) was holding office in New Pandan is now being processed at present.
“The old public market was constructed 60 years ago and we need a new one for new image,” Mayor Silvosa said.
The two-storey edifice would also cater for the new investors who come to do business in the ever-progressing City of Panabo, he added.
On the other hand, the city mayor also bared that also to start in the early months next year is the construction of the city government-owned Panabo City Memorial Park. It will be worth P70 million.
The new public cemetery will be developed along the concept of private memorial park at a seven-hectare land at Barangay New Visayas.
“After complying with the bidding process by January, we will start construction for the memorial park,” he said.
Assistant city engineer Rosalina Delima said in separate interview that the memorial park would have coffin and bone crypts.
“While the construction of the new cemetery will be ongoing, burials in the old cemetery at Barangay Gredu will still be allowed. Simultaneously the old cemetery will be rehabilitated with road improvements and realignments, and in cases when niches would be hit by the road improvements, bones of the deceased would be transferred to the new cemetery at New Visayas,” she said.
When the memorial park is completed and is already opened, meantime there will be no burial at the old cemetery as it would further be rehabilitated and easened up, it was learned. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
