MALAYBALAY CITY NEWS – A Bukidnon Second District Board Member has recommended to Bukidnon Governor Jose Ma. Zubiri, Jr. to declare the provincial area within Matin-ao Spring in Bangcud, Malaybalay City as an eco-tourism and recreational park.
In a resolution, Board Member Atty. Nemesio Beltran, Jr. asserts that his proposal will “boost eco-tourism, livelihood, employment, investment and other collateral benefits for the Province of Bukidnon.”
The Provincial Government of Bukidnon is the registered owner of a seven-hectare land, more or less, within Matin-ao Spring in Barangay Bangcud, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.
Beltran proposes that various amenities may be put in place, such as lodges, conference function rooms, mini zoo, botanical garden, tree park, fish pond, lagoon, swimming pool and gaming and entertainment facilities. The Matin-ao Spring property, according to Beltran, can be developed by interested LGUs in joint venture with private entities or may be offered to private entrepreneurs via build-operate-transfer or any other schemes.
The Beltran-authored resolution has been sent to Zubiri, Malaybalay City Mayor Florencio Flores, Jr., Bangcud Barangay Chairman Rosa Ma. Elena M. Robosa, and DOT Regional Director Catalino E. Chan III. (BUKIDNON ONLINE NEWS)
