BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan during the weekly Ugnayan Presser appealed to the people to respect the Court of Appeal's decision lifting the Temporary Environmental Protection Order (TEPO) issued against a mall here.
It can be recalled that the SM Baguio's expansion development project for a Sky Park obtained clearance after the Court of Appeals (CA) affirmed an earlier decision of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) dismissing the environmental case filed against the giant mall and lifting the TEPO it issued.
The expansion project came under fire as the area pinpointed for the Sky Park will touch at least a hundred fully grown trees.
