By Glen S. Ramos

BAGUIO City – The city government here recently identified seven potential areas where multi-level pay parking buildings will be established to help ease out the increasing volume of motor vehicles and address the worsening traffic congestions in the central business district area.

City Planning and Development Officer Donna R. Tabangin disclosed that the proposed plan will either be funded by the available funds of the local government or through the private public partnership scheme.

One of the proposed sites is the city-owned property along Kayang St. which will cater to the parking requirements of officials, employees and clients of the city hall offices.

Another one will be within the market area where the same will cater to the parking needs of market goers and the businesses within the city public market area.

The city government also intends to put up another multi-level parking structure within the proposed site of the city’s creative center at the area of the old city auditorium to provide residents and visitors alike with available parking spaces when visiting the Burnham Park, the city’s premier tourist destination.

Tabangin also mentioned Gov. Pack Road, Baguio Convention Center and at the slaughterhouse area where the proposed building projects will be erected. (ai/mtvn)
