Solon cites BLISTT growth area to solve Baguio’s problems


BAGUIO CITY, April 23 – The realization of the 15-year old expanded Baguio-La Trinidad-Itogon-Sablan-Tuba-Tublay (BLISTT) growth area is the key to putting an end to the numerous problems being encountered by Baguio City due to rapid urbanization.


This was bared by three-term Rep. Mauricio G. Domogan, who accepted the challenge of multi-sectoral groups to come back as the city’s mayor in order to bring back the glory days of Baguio, adding that the BLISTT concept is the potential solution to help address the city’s garbage, water, traffic and other problems caused by over population.


The BLISTT growth area is being pursued by the Regional Development Council (RDC) in the Cordillera in order to address the worsening problems of the city as well as promoting the development of areas surrounding Baguio City similar to the Greater Manila Area (GMA).

Market development must be with the vendors - Domogan


Baguio City--  The development of the city’s public market is the best way to clean it up and address the traffic congestion in the central business district, mayoralty candidate Mauricio G. Domogan said this week and he will make it a priority when he returns as the city’s chief executive.

Domogan however said that the legitimate market vendors should be partners in any development initiative for the public market. “We cannot neglect the vendors. We should negotiate and strike a compromise with them including the Uniwide Corporation”. He however emphasize that it should now be the city that should finance the development and the only reason for Uniwide’s involvement is its having won the market development contract in 1995. This is the only way we can settle the market development problem,” he explained.

The city had a development plan for the public market in 1995 when Domogan was the city mayor. The matter however was brought to court by some vendors and it was stalled.  After more than a decade, the court finally ruled in favor of the city. The vendor appealed the case and is still pending in the Court of Appeals.

by Joel B. Belinan

Baguio City— “A good environment, a peaceful and orderly city, the hospitable attitude of our people and good city services are the key to the revitalization of the local tourism industry,” mayoralty candidate Mauricio G. Domogan said this week.

If these five factors are all set in place and with our big advantage of having a much cooler climate, whether we like it or not, we will continue to grow as a tourism destination and as an educational center of the north, he explained.
