Park project in Tanjay opposed
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
A multi-million peso park project in Tanjay City, Negros Oriental, is being opposed by environmentalists.
Tanjay Mayor Reynaldo Concepcion had earlier disclosed funding for the P42 million improvement and renovation of Rizal Park to make it look like Rizal Park in Manila.
The project is ready for implementation after complying with all the requirements, he said Tuesday.
However, members of the Tanjay Anti-Black Sand Mining and some members of non-government organizations, who were invited during the public hearing Dec. 29, at the Osmeña Park in the city, continue to oppose the project.
