GINGOOG City — Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano yesterday revealed the capitol’s plan to invest over P10 million to further develop the memorial built for the passengers of the ill-fated Cebu Pacific Flight 387 along the boundaries of this city and Claveria town.
The plan is to turn the area, including a waterfall, into an income-generating tourism destination.
Emano initially discussed the plan with former governor and now Gingoog Vice Mayor Ruthie Guingona during the launch of a FM radio station in the city yesterday.
He said “Shrine Flight 387” would need to be developed further but the capitol would need the go-signal of the local governments of Gingoog and Claveria town.
Gingoog and Claveria have been claiming the area where the memorial was built to be part of their respective territories.
Emano said his proposal is for the capitol to develop the area and the governments of Gingoog and Claveria could share the revenues.
He said the capitol has over P10 million for the proposed undertaking. (edwin iyo)
