Mayor Strike Revilla led other national and local officials in the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Bacoor Government Center last Friday, March 2 signaling the start of high-impact infrastructure project carried out by the local government.

The center is located along Molino Boulevard in Barangay San Nicolas 2 and stand on a 2-hectare lot donated by Senator Manny Villar and Mr. Narcimiano Gawaran of the Addas Development Corporation. It will be the future workplace of the city government of Bacoor, the office of the House of Representatives (Cavite), and satellite for national government offices.

With a total floor area of 11,200 square meters, it is expected to carry the conceptual theme onwards cityhood being spacious enough to accommodate the growing number of Bacooreños transacting business and other matters with the local government.

The three-storey high building likewise boasts state-of-the-art technologies both in architecture and engineering, including the internationally-accepted ‘green building’ technology. The use of indigenous and/or recyclable materials or engineering materials proven with less-environmental impact shall be preferred and practical.

This consideration for the environment sits well with the local government advocacy for a greener and cleaner environment with the recent launching of the ‘Bawal na ang Plastic at Styro sa Bacoor.’

Mayor Revilla sees the implementation of this project as a realization of a dream and completion of his vision for a more progressive Bacoor that had long been overdue. He believed that the new Bacoor Government Center will be fully operational by 2013 which will provide better, faster and more accessible services to Bacooreños.

At present, the Municipal Hall of Bacoor is situated in Barangay Tabing Dagat and is no longer capable of further supporting the needs of growing locl government units. Among the constraints are the limited office spaces for a relatively huge number of employees, limited lounges for constituents who transact business and limited parking space. In addition, the area where the current municipal hall is situated and its adjacent provide no more room for expansion as to the structure and economic development.

Among who witnessed the groundbreaking are the following: Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, former senator Ramon Revilla, Sr., Senators Manny Villar and Ramon “Bong” Revilla, and Secretary Jesse Robredo of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Likewise, throwing support for this projects are Congresswoman Lani Mercado-Revilla, officials of all 73 Barangays, and representatives of various sectors – business, academe, church, homeowners associations, non-government organizations.

All the guests were invited and treated for a ‘boodle fight’ right after the program as the local Chief Executive celebrated his birthday. (Ruel Francisco, PIA-Cavite/Bacoor PIO)
