House Deputy Speaker Beng Climaco has lauded the city government for undertaking improvement and beautification projects such as the R.T. Lim Boulevard site development project inaugurated Tuesday coinciding with the 90th birth anniversary of the late Mayor Maria Clara Lobregat.

Rep. Climaco, who sourced P20 million of her priority development assistance fund (PDAF) for the initial piling work and seawall protection of the R.T. Lim Boulevard project said the project is a manifestation of the late Mrs. Lobregat’s exhortation “man juntu-juntu kita”.

In a message during the boulevard project inauguration, Climaco (represented by her Chief of Staff Michael Saavedra) said the project was accomplished “in partnership with Mayor Celso Lobregat and the city government and this is for the people of Zamboanga”.

“In behalf of Cong. Beng Climaco, we express our congratulations to the city government for undertaking this initiative,” Saavedra said.

After the initial work funded by the national government through Climaco’s initiative, the R.T. Lim Boulevard site development project covering 200 linear meters was pursued by Mayor Lobregat, who appropriated a total of P8.66 million for the completion of the first phase.

Lobregat envisions a second and third phase for the project which will mean the expansion of the site development project to at least 300-400 linear meters more. He hoped that the national government will once again come in to support the project.

Climaco has vowed to work hard for the betterment of the constituents and the entire Zamboanga City by complementing the plans and programs of the administration of Mayor Celso Lobregat.
She too stressed that a strong partnership between the local government unit and the national government will benefit the people of Zamboanga.

Mayor Lobregat has likewise cited the LGU-national government partnership in the implementation of the R.T. Lim Boulevard project. He thanked Cong. Climaco for supporting the project, intended to be a recreational area for promenaders. — Rham Joseph Cabasag
