Hon. Carlos Jose Valderrama Lopez
City Councilor and Chairman
Committee on Tourism
Dear Councilor Lopez:
I would like to commend your planned initiative to improve, develop and beautify the Bacolod Public Plaza, a significant portion of which forms part of the earliest patrimony of the Church of Bacolod.
Having gone over the minutes of the public hearing conducted by your committee last 25 March 2014, I would like to raise two important brief points:
1. Having in mind the best interest of the Church and of the people of Bacolod, I have nothing against the plan to beautify, improve and develop the parcel of land owned by the Church but now forms part of the existing Plaza under the terms and conditions in the Mutual Agreement of August 1922. So long as the said development as planned do not violate any stipulation of the said agreement, we give our generous YES. 2. However, as to the proposal that the property of the Church which forms part of the plaza be declared as a National Historical Site for the purpose of acquiring grants from TIEZA we say NO. This is due to reasons which are too long to discuss here. Suffice it to say, that there are crucial and lingering CANONICAL and LEGAL implications and questions that demand our careful study and consideration.

The program they launched yesterday at the Barangay Villamonte Hall with barangay heads led by ABC President Councilor Noli Villarosa who is Barangay Ta gub captain.
Paduano said that they surveyed the rivers and waterways in Bacolod that need to be cleaned up and they have identified those that need to be prioritized in terms of clearing and cleaning.
"We want this program to be sustainable so we all committed to help one another in this cause," Paduano told media people during the launching.
