Traffic News: Traffic council to strengthen traffic plan again in Bacolod

To address the traffic problem in the city, Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia planned to reactivate the Traffic Council to help the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office (BTAO) [2]. He added that the increasing number of vehicles being registered in Bacolod also contributed to the traffic congestion.

With the help of Traffic Council, Leonardia said that they will assess and evaluate the situation and come up with policies to guide the authorities. To finalize the implementation of the traffic master plan in the city, the mayor assigned the task to Executive Assistant George Zulueta. Recommendations to address the traffic situation in Bacolod were also received from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

(TFI), which runs the Negros Forest Park, and the Association of Negros Producers (ANP), which showcases Negros-made products, are going to partner with the Negros provincial government for the conservation of wildlife and promotion of Negros-made products [3].

Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson signed agreements with TFI President Dino Gutierrez and ANP President Arlene Infante to use Buglas Village, a Negros Occidental provincial government-owned property for free for 25 years. The said property is located inside the Negros Forest Park at the South Capitol Road in Bacolod City. TFI said that they are grateful to the provincial government for securing a home for our critically endangered species and rainforest in the heart of Bacolod.

Christina Gaston, ANP chairperson said that the partnership between the province and the private sector, ANP and Talarak Foundation will also help develop Micro Small and Medium Enterprises of Negros. The 1,000 square meters area inside the Negros Forest Park will be build next year.
