SOCA is roadmap of the city’s 7-year strategy – local dad

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union, Jan 17 (PIA) – – The State-of-the-City Address (SOCA) of local dad, Tuesday, January 15, spoke of the city’s seven-year roadmap and of a green economy starting this year tagged as “Going Green at 15” as this is the 15th year of being a city.

Mayor Pablo C. Ortega emphasized that for this year, they are focusing for a green economy which would lead to their vision of a city government dependent on the interrelation and cooperation among all stakeholders, working together for the fulfillment of their goals, having impact on the city’s web of development/progress.

To realize this dream, Ortega explained, they are now implementing the Performance Governance System (PGS) in partnership with the Institute for Solidarity in Asia (ISA) in establishing and institutionalizing a new culture of governance.

This, he said, will strengthen partnerships with both public/private sectors and the clientele, as they aim for an excellent delivery of public service which can provide great impact and positive effect not just to the city but to the province and the region as well.

The City’s Greening Program, one of the City’s 2020 Development Strategy will focus on the promotion of environmental stewardship through environmental monitoring and regulation, land resources management, air quality management, water resource management, special projects, and advocacy, purposely to strengthen pollution management, expand access to adequate and quality water sources, and achieve an environmentally-sensitive urban center.

Another strategic initiative which adds to greening the city is the Bamboo Industry Development Project. This supports the objective of strengthening bamboo as the one-town-one-product (OTOP) which will serve as one of the driving mechanism for local economic progress.

As the city’s OTOP, “We will ensure that requisite components are provided to include Bamboo Trading Post and Processing Center, Business Marketing and Advertising, Research and Development, and Policy and Institutional Development,” Ortega said.

Ortega’s report on their last year’s accomplishment on the forest management program in support to the National Greening Program of the national government where they have propagated a total of 16,502 forest and fruit-bearing trees added to the 6,400 seedling purchased to augment the seedling production used during tree planting activities is a good indicator of a determined vision.

Further, we expect to bring in more investments through a sound policy environment, strengthen the capacities of micro, small and medium enterprises, and ensure sustainability of economic enterprises that will bring about economic gains through our Agnegosyo AK! project, Ortega said.

Other strategic initiatives mentioned by Ortega were the Amendment of the Revenue Code as the city still collects taxes at the municipal level even if it has became a city in 1998; Operation Daga (land), Operation Dur-as (progress), Oplan Urnos (Order), Talged ken Talna (safety and peace), City Agri-Trading Post, Student Fostering Program, CGSFLU Assistance Passbook, San Fernando/ICT Program, Skills to Employment Equivalency Registry – an e-registry system designed to create a database of all employable constituents in the city, and the CSF Triple A or Reorganization Program.
