Academe keen to help in city’s adopt–an–overpass program
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

Academic institutions in the city are willing to help maintain the cleanliness of overpasses by adopting one nearest their area, according to the legislative monitoring and evaluation status report of the sangguniang panlungsod.

Details such as the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the school and local government unit, the academe’s choice of structure to adopt and the students’ timetable to conduct clean-ups, have to be ironed out, the report states.

A council resolution in 2008 was crafted for the purpose but was not fully implemented due to lack of details.  

Even earlier than the proposed resolution, the City Environment and Parks Management Office headed by Cordelia Lacsamana have allowed students from various universities to conduct overpass clean-ups. The activities are part of the schools’ National Service Training Program (NSTP).

When reminded of Resolution 37, s. 2008; University of the Cordilleras Vice President for Administration Leonarda Aguinalde said reduction of graffiti and garbage in a nearby overpass has always been part of the school’s programs, including the deployment of police interns for monitoring and prevention of vandalism.

At the University of the Philippines, NSTP facilitator Enrico Jugadora said they are willing to comply with clean-ups, more so after the K to 12 transition period. The number of students would go back to normal then, he said.

The University of Baguio Extension and Community Outreach Services could facilitate clean-ups and include the overpasses, which may also be adopted by the school, the report states further.

The report states that sustainability of the program is ensured under extension services of the academe instead of the NSTP. The student coordinator could meet with city representatives to discuss procedures, including setting metes and bounds for the adopt-an-overpass program.

The Cepmo was also requested to prepare a draft MOA for submission to Mayor Mauricio Domogan and the sangguniang panlungsod for confirmation.
