2 vital projects set to open in Dagupan

DAGUPAN CITY — Two vital projects funded by the city government are due for inauguration in the next few days, according to Mayor Belen Fernandez.

The women center shall promote wellness for all women to enhance their health and welfare.

Other city projects that are ongoing are elevation of low-lying street that are often underwater during the rainy season, including when tidal water rises.

The elevation of Nable Street fronting the Pangasinan Medical Center already started but was delayed for a while because of the election.

Another project is an evacuation center in Barangay Salapingao funded under the Bottoms Up Budgeting (BUB) program with counterpart from the city government

Fernandez said next on the line is the new government center in Dagupan which would have already been started had the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) was already approved. PNA/northboundasia.com
