Bambi to move capitol to town, lease out property

MISAMIS Oriental Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano yesterday confirmed that the capitol is planning on pursuing plans to relocate the seat of the provincial government some five kilometers away from the highway in the town of Alubijid town.

He said there are also plans to lease out the present capitol compound.

Emano said one of the factors why the capitol would pursue the plan to move the capitol to the town is because of the worsening vehicular congestion problem in the city.

Emano said the Alubijid property–some 50 hectares–was donated to the capitol by the state-owned University of Science and Technology of the Southern Philippines (USTP). The property is situated in Barangay Lourdes, Alubijid.

“I plan to transfer the provincial capitol to Alubijid to serve our people better kay conducive na ang  exisiting  provincial capitol,  and [also] to help decongest Cagayan de Oro,” said Emano, noting that the present seat of the provincial government is in the center of a busy commercial area in the city.

Emano said his plan now is for the provincial government to lease out the present capitol compound, including its structures.

The compound includes the provincial jail, provincial engineer’s office, and the Misamis Oriental Telephone System office.

The prison facility, he said, would be transferred to a five-hectare property in Initao town.

    It’s sad because The Capitol is a great symbol of the city. I hope they will spare the building and maintain as it is. Some cities are doing that. With new relocation Alubijid is kind of far. A lot of employees will have to bear the extra cost of transportation and extra time to report to work not counting some families to supervise their kids to go to school. It’s going to be hard for struggling families who will be struggling more to make a living.
