By Eugene Y. Adiong

The Protected Area Management Board (PAMB) of the Northern Negros Natural Park (NNNP) yesterday voted against the recommendation of the Technical Working Group (TWG) to demolish the illegal structures found inside the park.



The PAMB chaired by Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. during yesterday’s special meeting voted 34 for those against the recommendation, 11 in favor and one abstained.

The meeting was attended by six of the 11 mayors covered by the NNNP, barangay captains, indigenous people, non-government organizations, the academe and the religious sectors.

Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano voted against the TWG recommendation, saying that while he accepts that there should be “no compromise on areas considered as strictly no-build zones, those at the multi-use zones should have 60 percent for reforestation and 40 percent for agri-tourism activities.”

Salvador Benedicto Mayor Jose Max Ortiz said he also voted against the measure as it will “economically cripple his town.”

“Instead there should be regulation so as not to compromise the town’s bio-diversity. The TWG recommendation will cause a lot of trouble if implemented,” Ortiz said.

Calatrava Mayor Araceli Somosa is also against it, citing the fact that her town is still in the process of formulating its own Forest Land Use Plan (FLUP) and majority of the sitios of two big barangays are located inside the NNNP.
