CEBU, Philippines -  A new office will soon be created by the Talisay City government. 

According to Councilor Joseph Bernard Odilao, the creation of the Office of the City Architect will implement programs for Architectural planning and design of the city. 

Odilao said the population of the city is already growing and that it is necessary to create an office that will take charge of architectural planning and design.

It will make plans for the delivery of basic services and provide adequate facilities relative to architectural planning and design, he said. 

“There is a need to have a focal person to implement local architectural plans and designs upon approval by the city mayor,” he said. 

Under the ordinance, the city architect will prepare and recommend architectural designs for the local government unit (LGU), including the renewal of slums and blighted areas, land reclamation activities, greening of land, and appropriate planning of marine and foreshore seas.

Moreover, the office is also tasked to review and recommend to the city mayor the architectural plans and designs submitted by the government and non-government entities or individuals, particularly those for undeveloped, underdeveloped, and poorly-designed areas.

It also said OCA will also coordinate with government and non-government entities and individuals involved in the aesthetics and in the maximum utilization of land and water areas within the jurisdiction of the LGU, compatible with environmental integrity and ecological balance.

Odilao clarified that the new office will be separated from the City Planning and Development Office and City Engineering’s Office as soon as the city council adopts an ordinance formalizing the creation of the new office. (FREEMAN)
