Dad wants family zone in city
by Gaby B. Keith and Cassey Francis

The city council passed on first reading a proposed ordinance designating the stretch of Ganza and Solibao restaurants at the Lake Drive, Burnham as a “family zone.”

The measure, authored by Councilor Elmer Datuin, stated that Burnham Park was intended as a park that would serve as the lung of the city and later on designed as an area for relaxation and recreational activities.

“During previous Burnham Park summits, citizens appealed for a user-friendly and ecologically balanced park. In consonance with the foregoing advocacies, there is a need to put up a family zone at Burnham Park that would provide families a safe place to exercise, jog, dance, play, and socialize,” it added.

The proposed measure said that an excellent location to establish a family zone is along Lake Drive, particularly the stretch of Ganza to Solibao restaurants.

The ordinance said that the street was not open to vehicles until a resolution allowed the entry of light vehicles in 1992 to decongest the traffic experienced due to diggings done along the city’s main roads then.

“There is a need to close again said street to retain the original purpose of the park as a peaceful environment providing fresh air and wide spaces where constituents and visitors of the city can enjoy being outdoors as a community free from noise and air pollution caused by vehicular traffic and to designate this area as a family zone in Burnham Park,” the measure stated.

It added that aside from encouraging wellness enthusiasts, such closure will reduce air pollution at Burnham Park.

The area shall be established as a family zone and open for jogging, exercising, leisure walking, and zumba among other activities.

Violators will be fined P500.
