Dialogue on env’t issues set Feb 21
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

The council committee on health and sanitation, ecology, and environmental protection headed by Councilor Elaine Sembrano will conduct a public hearing on proposed ordinances on Feb. 21 starting at 9 a.m. at the City Hall multipurpose hall.

Included in the forum is Sembrano’s proposed ordinance on the designation of April 22 and June 5 as carless days in Baguio. The action is in consonance with the celebration of the Earth Hour on April 22 and June as Environment Month with World Environment Day on June 5.

Through the measure, the goal of improving air quality would be realized through a day’s less vehicle exhaust released into the environment.

The proposal of Councilor Leandro Yangot Jr. for the preservation of century and heritage trees in the city will also be discussed in the forum. Century or heritage trees may be individual large trees, which are unique and irreplaceable and with biological, cultural, ecological, and historical interest due to age, size, and condition.

Yangot, together with eight councilors,  also authored a proposal establishing a crematorium and the appropriation of funds for the purpose.

Vice Mayor Edison Bilog and Yangot, together with the other council members, proposed an ordinance mandating the use of silencer to eliminate noise from automobiles and motorcycles with excessive sounds.

Sembrano also proposed for establishments in the central business district to incorporate a green zone in their business areas “to promote an environmental-friendly CBD” and to serve as an “act of support to air quality improvement.”

Plants, she stated in the proposal, are scientifically acknowledged as air sanitizers as they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen.

The public’s inputs will be considered in the city council’s deliberation of the proposed measures.
