Yaranon, in a proposed ordinance, said that with the rich culture, history, heritage, arts and tradition, the city endeavors active participation in the pursuit of cultural preservation as a strategy for maintaining Filipino identity.

The proposed ordinance mandates the allocation of PP500,000 under the City Mayor’s Office for the operational needs of the council that will be established for the said purpose.

It shall formulate programs and recommendations to develop and sustain local cultural and artistic talents, cultural industries, traditional and contemporary arts and crafts and their processes and coordinate with the appropriate affiliated cultural agencies of the NCCA for the conservation and monitoring of national cultural properties found in the city.

The council will also conduct events, such as cultural festivals, competitions, lectures, seminars and symposia and identify such other programs and activities for the promotion of local cultural heritage and arts.

It shall ensure the protection, preservation, conservation and promotion of the local cultural and historical  heritage and declare and maintain local heritage zones and establish a local registry of cultural property.

The council shall acknowledge the importance of traditional folk artists as singular conduit between skills of the past and the future and revitalize Baguio city’s artistic tradition thereby protecting a valuable fact of Philippine culture and provide mechanisms for identification and assistance for qualified traditional folk artists to transfer their skills to the community and create opportunities for popularizing their works locally.
