Clean and green! Mayor Bongat leads tree planting activity around Naga City Abattoir


Mayor John Bongat led the tree planting initiative around Naga City Abattoir yesterday.

Bongat said that the city government aims to transform the area into a “clean and green” orchard and park.

He said that the orchard and park can also be used as playground of the kids as it is located near employees’ housing projects of the city government.

“TREE PLANTING AROUND NAGA CITY ABATTOIR, the first step into its development into an orchard and park where guyabano, jackfruit, rambutan, mango, cacao, pili and other tropical fruit bearing trees will grow and make the facility’s surroundings (open space of more than 1 hectare) clean and green,” the Mayor said.

“The orchard/park can also serve as playground for kids in the adjacent employees’ housing projects of the city comprising of 141 units in Johnville 2 and 48 units in Johnville 1,” he noted.

Mayor Bongat expressed his gratitude to all the people behind the initiative and who worked together to promote the said project.

“Thank you City ENRO headed by Engr Alex Caning, the Naga City Abattoir headed by Mr Roberto Gupilan Acabado, Abattoir GMP Officer Engr Dhan Cea, the City Agriculture Office headed by ma’am Maria Edna Barra Bongalonta, and the City College of Naga thru College Administrator Dr. Magno Conag, Jr. for this interoffice collaboration to promote an environment-friendly slaughterhouse and a more livable City of Naga,” he said.
