Forum on proposed multi-level parking set
by Aileen P. Refuerzo and Julie G. Fianza

The public is invited to the second round of talks on the master development plan of the Burnham Park proposed multi-level parking complex, on April 11 at the City Hall multipurpose hall.

The proposed parking area with concessionaires’ area is located at the existing tourist bus parking area between the Baguio City High School campus and skating rink or the Baguio auditorium.

City Secretary Brenner Bengwayan said the building shall comply with requirements of the green architecture concept, and an alternative to the Ganza parking proposal. The authorization of Mayor Mauricio Domogan to implement the project will also be discussed in the public hearing.

The April 11 meeting is focused on the reading of proposed ordinances; the presentation of Megabuild JPG development and RGChan and Associates, and an open forum to accommodate public opinion and queries.

Councilor Edgar Avila, committee chair on urban planning, lands and housing and co-author of the proposal, asked that all concerned sectors present their views or alternatives to solve the city’s traffic problem.

The University of the Cordilleras through Arch. Robert Romero conducted an independent study including researches, surveys, and consultations, which yielded an expressed need for amenities such as shopping centers, parking areas, and shopping centers. The study, however, adhered on the “walkability” of the proposed area within Burnham Park.

During the initial public hearing on March 21, the proposal was met with various reactions from supporters and opposition of the proposed parking building. 

Mall developer XRC proposed an P800-million building with a three-floor basement parking for 40 to 50 trucks/buses and 1,200 to 1500 cars; a six-floor building which could accommodate a mall, a pasalubong center, and a hotel with an auditorium and a library. No trees would be cut in the area, the developer said.

Also up for discussion during the public hearing are other related ordinances and resolutions.
