"It’s a Dream City that could be realized soon. A City of the Near Future. A Mega City and a Metropolitan Center that Bacoleños can truly be proud of. "
It appears to be everyone’s ultimate dream in Bacolod City that Mayor Monico Puentevella envisions for his constituents in the City of Smiles, the Gateway to Sugarlandia. Who knows? With the full support of well-meaning citizens, the civic-minded groups, the business community, progressive-minded Negrenses and all concerned sectors, this pleasant dream can become a reality in the not-too-distant future.
